Abstract: Conventional product development thinking forces a tradeoff between the rate of innovation (i.e. development velocity) and quality (and availability), often depicted as an indifference curve along the two dimensions. However, by investing in automation and other DevOps best-practices, one can shift the curve to increase both rate of innovation and quality. We’ll highlight a few key areas, with past examples from Netflix, that are especially effective.

Abstract: The Key to DevOps Success – Managing Cross-Silo Collaboration. Collaboration is essential to DevOps, yet how to do it is often unclear with many teams falling back on ineffective conference calls, instant messaging, documents, and SharePoint sites. In this keynote, ITinvolve chief technical evangelist, Matthew Selheimer, will share a vision for a next generation “DevOps 2.0” where collaboration, continuous documentation, and knowledge capture are combined with automation toolchains to enable rapid innovation and deployment. Matt will apply this vision to practical DevOps questions such as how do we more effectively collaborate on changing requirements across all stakeholders without creating an additional burden, and how can we more effectively merge “creation” with “operations” activities to enable continuous, seamless deployments? These questions and more will also be explored through a live demonstration.

Abstract: DevOps takes a Lean view of ‘streamlining’ the delivery pipeline by eliminating bottlenecks. The Toyota approach to Lean Manufacturing streamlined the assembly line with ‘Kaizen’ or Continuous Improvement. Methodologies like SaFE take agile approaches to the next step by introducing true Lean approaches to eliminating bottlenecks by leveraging lean measurements. DevOps extends this Lean approach to the entire Application Delivery process in the Enterprise – from the Line of business to development to QA to operations. This session will explores the lean roots of DevOps and how Lean practices are being leveraged to drive DevOps adoptions in Enterprises.
