DevOps is hot and likely top of mind for your executives.
Every IT analyst firm now has a point of view (POV) on DevOps. International Data Corp. (IDC) for example believes that DevOps will be adopted (in either practice or discipline) by 80% of Global 1000 organizations by 2019 (read: IDC MaturityScape Benchmark Assesses DevOps in the United States).
DevOps events, conferences, web sites, meetups, and communities are proliferating like wildfire. For example, the devopsdays conferences started with a single event in 2009. Fast forward to 2014, through DevOps’ meteoric rise…18 devopsdays events were held at locations scattered far and wide across the globe.
The top IT vendors all have DevOps product lines and consulting services, and new technology startups and VC funding continually enter the space. Why? Organizations need to deliver more applications and systems faster with higher quality, at reduced risk and expense. Downtime has become untenable at any cost, and every second of time to recovery equates to lost revenue. DevOps addresses these challenges through improved collaboration, workflow, and automation solutions, based on proven Agile and LEAN principles and techniques, that improve speed to market and reliability. A DevOps approach delivers technical and business results to LOB leaders, the C-suite and to IT app delivery and operations.

If you are responsible for justifying investment in new mobile or cloud app platforms, or modernizing enterprise apps, or implementing a DevOps solution for continuous delivery, then our upcoming webinar will be of interest to you. When you ask stakeholders to change what they’ve done successfully for years, and adopt a DevOps approach, you must monetize the benefits and ROI for them and make the organization change real. Like any change in approach, investment and ROI are required before it will be adopted and scaled widely. And like any executives who sponsor or fund an investment, your executives will want to see a significant, monetized payback, and the quicker the better. As you know, senior executives in the C-suite love numbers, and those with dollar signs are even more endearing to them.

Join Valerie Scott, Manager of the Shared Services Division at HM Health Solutions, and Peter Spung from IBM, as they discuss monetizing key DevOps benefits and associated costs. They will share a case study where cost benefit analysis frameworks were leveraged to justify DevOps ROI to senior executives.
HM Health Solutions invested in and adopted proven DevOps practices, such as: test-drive development, automated testing, streamlined code review, continuous integration, and continuous delivery via automated deployment.
These practices have been rolled out across dozens of applications and environments thus far, and will be rolled out across hundreds in the coming months. The results have been stellar thus far:
- a 67% reduction in resource demands on the release team & process,
- a 75% reduction in relative hours to repair defects per environment,
- and an 82% reduction in app deployment time
This is just the tip of the iceberg as Val will describe — she’s just getting started on HM Health Solutions’ DevOps journey! And they are not alone. These results are typical and reflective of many other client cases studies and success stories, as Peter will describe.
Please join us April 23 from 1 to 2pm EDT for what will be a very engaging and insightful discussion!
