Agile and DevOps are both common buzzwords and lots of organizations are “doing” them. Implementing frameworks such as Scrum/Kanban sometimes can make changes within an area of the company, but instituting DevOps essentials such as continuous integration, continuous deployment, and continuous monitoring often require greater collaboration across teams in companies with functional structures. Find out how implementing Agile and DevOps practices at your organization can cause changes in mindsets, people, processes and tools, often leading to real organizational change and improved agility. After attending, listeners will leave with an understanding of the journeys we have seen to get there and the key drivers for a successful transformation.
