Overview of the event

DevOps is much more than just local improvement in the development, delivery and operation of software: it represents a movement thattouches development and operations (obviously!), but organizational culture, quality assurance, security, and program management.

Automation, Agile processes, micro services, continuous delivery, container and cloud technologies are essential to the current high performance IT transformation.

Robotic Process Automation (RPA), Machine Learning and AI provide immense opportunity in Data and Process Analytics for optimum outcomes.

New business models presented by Block chain are further increasing the opportunities for enterprise to create / manage disruptions.

The DevOps Enterprise Automation Conference will feature insightful talks and solution based discussions that will help to understand the concept of DevOps, associated benefits, scrutinize implementation challenges and their solutions.

X Topic Abstract

While it’s widely popular and understood that DevOps delivers value to organizations at large, if not transitioned efficiently might cost the organizations a lot more. These are the few very important questions organizations, especially large enterprises, should answer before they turn to DevOps
1. Why and what does DevOps mean to you and do you have a total buy in, commitment from higher management?
2. Do you understand how different departments of your organization currently work ?
3. Is the organization Agile ready and not ‘FR’AGILE?
4. Is the enterprise ready to accept and commit to the extra effort and cost involved for the transition like staff training costs, requirement to hire highly skilled professionals, investment in software, and office supplements in view of the long-term benefit?

When DevOps is done right, the world gets to experience more happiness. Developers gain more control over end to end process and increase their confidence in quality of code with solid automation through entire lifecycle. In addition to that operations transparency leads to acknowledgment for hard work operations invest in software (i.e., security, patching, configuration management, performance testing, monitoring, change management, etc.). Additionally, operations gets to experience less stress and interrupted sleep (i.e., pager duty) due to higher-quality code, faster fixes, higher stability and reliability. The business as a whole gets to experience improved end-user satisfaction and less missed opportunities, all thanks to DevOps.

However, implementing DevOps is complex change process with multiple moving parts and it takes some art to get it right. This talk will equip you with kick-start guide on implementing DevOps in Enterprise.

X Topic Abstract

As we have matured our software development process, DevOps has gained more prominence than ever. While by definition it is the conjugal between Dev and Ops, in reality, it is much more than that. DevOps is a way to create the culture of collaboration, by bringing every single stakeholders into the game; It is also a way to instigate the principle of automation at every single phase of the delivery, in an effort to make the process seamless, faster and free from human error.
Does that mean 'Quality' will be left out in the cold in a DevOps world ? Does this put software testing a bit less relevant ?
And surprisingly, the answer to both of these are a BIG 'NO' ! And the reason is even simpler.
Welcome to the world of 'customers-first' business where quality and customer experience supersedes everything else. And to deliver that superior experience, there is no short cut. Notion of 'Quality' is now more important than ever. It is now embedded from the very beginning of the Product development till it reaches the users, or even after that. And the idea of DevOps stems from the very need for delivering superiors customer experience, by delivering software faster and better. And the only way to make it truly achievable when everyone in the game remains answerable for 'Quality'; DevOps is driving Quality - not losing it.
In this talk, we will hunt down those aspects of Quality that makes DevOps to thrive and makes a product ‘Successful’ !
