DevOps Showcase: Adopting DevOps in your Organisation 28 February 2018, Brussels
This event is co-located with Agile Showcase. Delegates may attend any sessions from across the two conferences.
DevOps now is in its eighth year of practice but the old architecture is no longer able to support the speed of delivery and so needs the additional help of Microservices and Docker for incremental change. But adopting a new capability requires a plan that includes people, process and technology. Understanding this is not difficult but implementing it is not just setting up tools. You have to convince team members, map old processes to new, and maybe even change the structure of organizational reporting and budgeting. At this conference we will discuss some strategies and processes that will help to achieve this.

Joint morning session with Agile Showcase

Agile and DevOps: Are they a separate conversation or a progression of capability?
DevOps and Agile have shared environments that facilitate working together.  These two methods are more than simply adopting new tools and processes and the synergy involves building a development and a stable Continuous Integration (CI) infrastructure, as well as an automated pipeline that moves deliverables from development to production.  They can work together and the entire build process should be transparent, and it should enable and support development and operations.  This transformation depends on: significant changes in culture; roles and responsibilities; team structure; tools and processes.

The Round Table session is the last of the joint morning session with the other co-located events. This session is for 45 minutes of which there will be around ten minutes for a general summing up at the end. The speaker at each table will have a set theme and delegates join any table that they are interested in. They are given all the topics with their joining instructions and again at the time of registration and so make their choice on the topics that they want to attend. This is a discussion group and so no presentation slides are necessary, but please submit a topic if you would like to chair a discussion on a topic related to Agile and DevOps.

This event is for you

If you are considering using the new technologies for your organization and want to deepen your understanding

  • If you are migrating to a new architecture but need ideas on coping with issues and challenges
  • If you want to learn about other service-related architecture styles
  • This day will engage not just existing DevOps pros, but also managers and executives like
    ♦ CIOs
    ♦ CISOs,
    ♦ Dev & Ops managers,
    ♦ business leaders and
    ♦ architects who need to know what changes are needed in enterprise architecture.

Benefits of attending: 
The speakers at this conference will follow the process from development to production.  They will:

  • review the trends and best practices on how to deliver by optimizing the processes with agility and speed
  • deepen your understanding of the other service-related architecture styles and help to consider the pros and cons if you are thinking of using it in your organisation and
  • if you have already migrated to these architectures, the event will help you select a service architecture to meet the challenges you are facing.
