Applying DevOps thinking to environmental data management - Dave Kennewell
DevOps is delighting customers by bringing developers and operations together to own a shared outcome.
But what happens when those developers and operators work for different companies and under different contracts? Can we make this work? What can DevOps teach us here?
Let's look at the world outside of software development.
Using rainfall as an example, we’ll trace the path of environmental data from when it literally falls out of the sky, through to the multi-million dollar impacts this data can have on Sydney’s next infrastructure projects.
Is it possible for government decision makers to delight customers the same way a tech startup can?
Dave Kennewell is an environmental engineer. He helps governments, land developers and transport planners put their kit in the right place so it doesn’t get washed away in the next flood, or pollute the beach downstream.
He's worked on projects from fixing local creeks on Sydney's northern beaches through to masterplanning flood management for India’s newest ‘smart’ cities.
Dave is founder at hydrata.com, where we are passionate about using open data and web mapping to improve collaboration.
