Scaling DevOps – Challenges in Transformation in large, complex enterprises & how to overcome them

Submitted Feb 24, 2017

Topic of Presentation: Scaling DevOps – Challenges in Transformation in large, complex enterprises & how to overcome them
Abstract of the Talk: While DevOps implementations would have happened in bits & pieces across most client landscapes, scaling it when we have 10-15,000 people working, IT spend anywhere between 800 million- 1 Billion $ and spread across 20-30 locations can be daunting. Also, DevOps dimensions have changed largely in last two years where the expectation is to tackle the entire value chain across Plan, Build & Run rather than focus only on CI & CD. The topic would cover the four prime pillars of DevOps with examples – People, Process, Culture & Tools on how to deliver a more effective and efficient build, run and change services to Business.

Intended audience: Front-line managers & DevOps architects from various IT service organizations
