DevOps Workshop

Going Beyond Multi-Speed IT to Bring Agility
to Traditional Enterprise Applications

November 2, 2016






Brad Schick

Chief Technology Officer and VP of Engineering, Skytap

The How and Why of Application Modernization and Delivery

3:40pm-4:15pm

Technology innovation is the driving force behind modern business and enterprises must respond by increasing the speed and efficiency of software delivery. The challenge is that existing enterprise applications are expensive to develop and difficult to modernize. This often results in what Gartner calls "Bimodal IT," where business struggle to apply modern tools and practices to traditional monolithic applications. But these existing assets can be modernized and made more efficient without having to be completely overhauled. By leveraging methodologies like DevOps and agile, alongside emerging technologies like cloud-native services and containerization, traditional applications and teams can be more easily modernized without risking everything that depends on them. This session will describe how to apply lessons learned from modern app development, including the starting point to modernization that many enterprises are using to quickly improve speed, efficiency, and software quality.

How to Develop a DevOps Environment Strategy to Reduce Cycle Time

4:20pm-4:55pm

For an efficient DevOps workflow, every person in the software development team needs rapid self-service access to application environments. Consistent environments form the backbone of any DevOps toolchain. Creating environments can be simple for new applications and POCs, however, it becomes very challenging as those applications become more complex and distributed. In this session, we will discuss the fundamentals of a DevOps environment strategy and a framework to build one to support your own goals.

DevOps Three-Ways: A Panel Across Development, Operations and QA Leadership Peers

5:00pm-5:35pm

We often hear about DevOps wins from a single perspective; that of the person who championed the transformation. Yet DevOps is not about a single group's perspective - it's all about the integrated approach to delivering software across multiple disciplines. Hear a panel of three peers working for the same company across Development, QA and Operations describe their unique perspective of their integrated DevOps process.

Today’s AI cannot create an algorithm that satisfies a human’s intent in all but the simplest cases. What we do have is AI that can divine insights from patterns in large data sets. If we can boil down algorithms into such data sets, then we can make some headway. For example, if an AI-based application has access to a vast number of human-created workflows, then it can make a pretty good guess as to the next step in a workflow you might be working on at the moment. In other words, we now have autocomplete for algorithms – what we call ‘next best action.’ We may still have to give our so...

IT organizations that don't know their risk factors and exposure are likely to make investments in DevOps that don't matter. After working with several teams that lost their DevOps funding after making automation investments in areas that were not business constraints, Anne Hungate's "Know Your Numbers" model emerged. Join Anne to learn how to prioritize your DevOps improvements and demonstrate the impact and value you are delivering. After all, DevOps gets traction and funding when teams can show the business impact of doing it, so if you want your DevOps initiative to take off, be prepared t...
