The Who, What and Why

Research and experience have proven that breaking down the barriers between Dev and Ops can yield tremendous efficiency, quality and velocity enhancements for software delivery teams.  

But, in the spirit of continuous improvement…  what’s next? What happens when you break down the barriers between DevOps and other parts of the business?

Join Jay Lyman (Principal Analyst, Cloud Native and DevOps, 451 Research) and Brian Dawson (DevOps Evangelist, CloudBees) as they review research on the current state of Software Delivery Management (SDM), and outline the key practices organizations should adopt to keep ALL teams on the same page about the software delivery function.

We’ll discuss:

  1. How DevOps and SDM are critical for  driving digital transformation.
  2. The key stakeholders you need to focus on, beyond development and IT operations.
  3. The role of security and governance, and how organizations can effectively measure and prove their DevOps success.
