Speakers: Grant Smith (previously from British Gas) & Stephen Thair (from DevOpsGuys)
Presentations: Grant Smith will be presenting on the title ‘Creating the DevOps organisation’ If DevOps is to deliver on its promise of increased productivity, better quality services and a more efficient organisation, then the people, organisational structure and culture needs to change. This presentation will discuss how one can create a DevOps organisation in a small startup and in a multi-billion dollar global enterprise, and everything in between.
Steve will be presenting on the title ‘The WHY of DevOps’
DevOps is one of the hottest topics in IT in 2014 and is being embraced by many organisations from small start-ups to large enterprises. There is a tendency for some organisations to jump straight to the “HOW and WHAT” of DevOps without understanding the WHY, and in particular why DevOps may, or may not, be the right solution for their organisational IT woes. The goal of this presentation is to guide you through the “Why’s” of DevOps by looking at the challenges many IT organisations face, and by examining some of the external forces acting on IT departments today.
