DevOps Summit Amsterdam: Implementing DevOps - 14 Nov, Amsterdam
Updated 30 May 2013
DevOps is a hot topic that addresses a forty-year old technology evolution. Join us as we explore DevOps, broken into four strategic conversations that address why “now is the right time” for you to adopt DevOps. DevOps is for both large traditional organizations and small innovative teams.
Every organizations has it’s unique upside potential, but every organization will also have it’s own challenges addressing legacy models, frameworks, processes, organizational structures and the technologies, tools and platforms we already have, like or prefer.
Survive, grow and sustain is the “mantra” in the current economic climate. For this, organisations need to keep a steady pace in releasing and updating new applications and following a method that is acceptable to the stakeholders. They have to create a sustainable, operational equilibrium between development, operations and the business priorities.
At the core of development is Automation necessary for build, test and continuous deployment. Tools for release management, provisioning, configuration management, systems integration, monitoring and control, and orchestration are important aspects in building a DevOps system. In building and controlling of systems come into play Agile techniques and Lean practices.
Measurement is the next important aspect and placed in the feedback process. A successful Devops implementation should measure performance, process, and even people metrics.
Cultural Change – Effective teams are essential for the delivery of reliable software and business benefit.
Sharing of ideas, stories of problems and success is essential and for the team to realize and treat the problem as the enemy and not each other. Sharing of ideas opens the channels of feedback and so leads to improvement.
These aspects are vital for a smooth collaborative and efficient running of the organization. Lead speakers will provide insightful analysis of each of these topics and will be supported by a panel of users discussing problems and benefits. Case Study presenters are those who has adopted or implemented this aspect within their enterprise and exactly what they did to ensure successful adoption.

|In the last few months, a movement has begun to take shape. It's a movement of people who think it's time for change in the IT industry - time to stop wasting money, time to start delivering great software, and building systems that scale and last. This movement is being called Devops. But what is Devops? Where did it come from? And what can it achieve? read more...|
