The Agile movement aimed to break down the barriers between business units, programmers, and testers. Now, the DevOps—an evolving set of principles and practices for communication, collaboration, and integration between development and IT operations—seeks to bridge the development/operations barrier. In this talk, aimed at executives and senior management, Jez will show how DevOps enables enterprises to build, evolve and operate rapidly changing, secure, resilient systems at scale. Jez will discuss how enterprises have implemented DevOps in real life, discuss common obstacles such as compliance, architecture, and organizational culture, and present strategies to address them.
