7:25 - Second Talk - Decreasing complexity while increasing velocity with GitLab - Kelly Hair and Larry Beigel

We live and work and in an environment of "dizzying acceleration" according to Pulitzer Pricing winning author, Thomas Friedman's new book “Thank you for being late." Friedman deftly acknowledges the implications to nations, companies and individuals. The rate of change has never been more apparent and a challenge to navigate.

The key metric is cycle-time. The challenge is how do organizations reduce cycle time? One way is to reduce complexity. Optimization & modernization of the SDLC tool chain can eliminate brittle and dependance development infrastructures which delay value delivery. Please join us as GitLab discusses and demonstrates how organizations can reduce cycle time by reducing complexity and empowering developers.
