Seemingly everyone is excited about DevOps – the issue is that nearly every constituency, from practitioners to solutions vendors – maintains a unique definition and perspective on what this transformative process truly entails.

To some, DevOps is merely a nascent cultural evolution, while others are already referring to proven best practices useful in marrying development and IT operations to reinvent the modern software factory. The beauty is, DevOps is all of these things, and more.

In this webinar, representatives from DevOps Express, the industry-leading consortium of technologists and solutions providers will discuss:

  • The most commonly held beliefs regarding the true meaning of DevOps and how this relates to real-world adoption
  • How advancement toward a commonly held set of concepts and workflows will spur broader DevOps acceptance
  • Some of the most significant challenges facing today’s organization as they continue to align with DevOps methodologies
  • Where technology providers and the DevOps Express consortium will seek to help organizations integrate and simplify toolchains

Join this open discussion of where DevOps maturity currently stands and help contribute to the evolution of related standards and best practices. Register today.
