Application Lifecycle Management

  • What if you could do this using a fraction of your current development and operations resources?
  • What if you could logically describe your application topology and abstract it from specific hardware configurations?
  • What if you could reliably deliver complex applications in hours — not months?
  • Does your company lack the appetite to move into a fully automated operational environment?

These are some of the topics we’ll be exploring in this Meet-Up hosted by Tim Kimmet and Vitaliy Zinchenko of @WalmartLabs, the technology arm of Walmart eCommerce.

Tim Kimmet will touch on the Agility and Speed with which @WalmartLabs is adopting new technologies to drive efficiency in business. He will also share ideas for a new culture being built around Self-Service and Keep-it-Safe principals, plus adoption of new tools to drastically transform the way we deliver software to the world at @WalmartLabs. Vitaliy Zinchenko will then give a demo of the OneOps solution, a recent acquisition made by @WalmartLabs.

    I've gotten a lot of milage out of this meeting by sharing with my colleagues your examples of how developers CAN deploy quickly and self-serve while still maintain operational safety and reliability.
