Breaking Down Barriers: Empowering Developers with Service Management Insights


Tuesday October 25th,

1:00p ET

Traditional IT organizations have spent years optimizing their monitoring and management of the systems but the walls to Dev have been too high. How can we begin to break down those walls? With the move to hybrid cloud organizations are transitioning to multiple different providers of systems, but still retain the key systems of record in house. How do you begin to tie the operations and the development teams together? The first step is having that existing monitoring collecting the right information for development. This lively discussion will drill into how you can use todays technology to better provide the right debug information to development based on operational monitoring, and how these teams can work together to begin the DevOps transformation.
