- 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.
