Today’s digital economy demands a New Style of Business, where organizations must act with agility and deliver with velocity – providing visibility through the entire application lifecycle. DevOps brings together development and operations professionals early in the application delivery process, and enables them to collaborate closely and work as an integrated team.

Organizations are turning to agile methodologies, seeking major productivity and quality improvements, however large-scale agile development is difficult. Hear Gary Gruver, author and industry pioneer, share a candid start-to-finish insider look at how he succeed with agile in one of the company’s most mission-critical software environments. Then, you’ll have an opportunity to join a collaborative, small group discussion on how to:

  • Break down the silos and increase visibility across your IT organization
  • Empower teams to work together to rapidly build quality software
  • Automate build, test, and deployment processes, faster and more reliably
