The Challenges and Rewards of DevOps
Part 1: October 22, Noon-1 p.m. EDT
Part 2: October 29, Noon-1 p.m. EDT
Is your organization looking for ways to reduce time from idea to delivery? Some organizations can deliver hundreds of changes in a single day, while others find it hard to reduce cycle time because of slow handoff from development to operations. DevOps can solve this by blending together the traditional development and operations silos without violating any necessary controls. There are many challenges to making this shift, but the rewards make DevOps well worth the effort.
