To drive towards faster innovation, and also ensure the stability of the core business, the need arises for what is being termed as “two-speed or variable speed IT.” While innovative Systems of Engagement demand speed, agility and experimentation, legacy Systems of Record need governance and predictability. Two-speed IT enables adoption of DevOps capabilities by adapting them to the “speed” of delivery. It requires two-speed business planning and processes and even two-speed organizational structure and budgeting. Join Carmen DeArdo, Director of Application Development at Nationwide Insurance, Sanjeev Sharma, lead DevOps Technical Evangelist at IBM, and Lee Reid, executive IT specialist as they show how IBM’s solution is helping Nationwide adopt DevOps practices for variable speed IT systems.
This webinar is the first in the Variable Speed DevOps – A Deep Dive series.
