Section: Full talk of 40 mins duration Technical level: Intermediate Status: Rejected


Lot has changed in the last 20 yrs. We have evolved from handcrafted server deployments to managing tens of thousands of devices programmatically, from monolithic architectures to distributed async-microservices, from waterfall to continuous delivery, from siloed culture to collaborative Dev*Ops culture and from hierarchical resource management to outcome-oriented structures.

Still, organisations & teams struggle to keep up. In this talk, we will explore why this happens and what organisations should do to build MUST required capabilities to run infrastructure operations at scale.


  • History, 20 yrs of change!
  • What does Infra-Ops Agility mean ?
  • Why organisations & particularly ops teams struggle?
  • What cultural, structural & skill aspects makes a great engineering org. ?
  • How to manage priorities ?
