Infra-Ops Agility

Submitted Mar 26, 2019

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 ?
