Three-Day 'DevOps Enterprise: The Agile, Continuous Delivery And DevOps Transformation Summit' Set For October 2014 In Bay Area

Conference to focus on DevOps and Continuous Delivery adoption within larger enterprise and web-scale organizations

SUNNYVALE, Calif., April 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- DevOps Enterprise: The Agile, Continuous Delivery and DevOps Transformation Summit, the first industry event focused on helping enterprise software organizations accelerate the pace of quality software into production and deployment, will take place October 21-23, 2014, in Burlingame, Calif. The conference is a partnership between Electric Cloud and IT Revolution founder and noted DevOps author and researcher Gene Kim, and will feature industry leaders who are driving enterprise transformations at Disney, Macy's, GE and many more leading organizations. The event uniquely addresses the new and emerging challenges that software driven organizations face when adopting and scaling DevOps and Continuous Delivery practices across the enterprise.

"One of the goals of this conference is to show that DevOps and Continuous Delivery aren't just for startups and Internet companies. Instead, DevOps patterns are being adopted by and creating business value for some of the largest and most complex organizations on the planet," said Gene Kim, co-author of "The Phoenix Project: A Novel About IT, DevOps, and Helping Your Business Win," a seminal book that describes the need for DevOps. "We hope to create a community of practice for people who are driving large-scale transformation, so we can codify the patterns that are enabling their success."

The DevOps Enterprise Summit is a three-day industry event featuring practitioners from large and sophisticated software organizations, across all industry verticals. The first day and a half of the conference program includes keynotes from industry luminaries and speakers from well-known enterprises that will share enterprise DevOps and Continuous Delivery experiences, successes and failures. The second and third days of the conference will feature parallel technology, process and business tracks throughout the day.

"Continuous Delivery is the new Agile – providing transformational benefits that drive strategic value through more predictable, fast and quality software releases," said Steve Brodie, CEO of Electric Cloud. "This summit features presentations from executives at larger enterprise organizations that are adopting Continuous Delivery and DevOps to improve code quality and ensure that software is release ready when the business needs it most. The event will also wrap-in our user conference, providing deep dives into Electric Cloud's product strategy and roadmap."

DevOps and Continuous Delivery are crucial practices that leverage the value of Agile and Lean initiatives to accelerate the pace of software development. With code being developed faster coupled with competitive and market forces requiring expedited delivery of quality software to end-users, DevOps and Continuous Delivery are enablers of the fast-paced modern development lifecycle. The practices help connect developers with IT operations, address cultural and process barriers, and provide the structure and rigor needed to consistently deliver high-quality software faster and with confidence.

Unlike other conferences, this event focuses on DevOps and Continuous Delivery in the enterprise – reaching beyond practices that helped ISVs and Internet companies succeed.

Adding public cloud resources to an existing application can be a daunting process. The tools that you currently use to manage the software and hardware outside the cloud aren’t always the best tools to efficiently grow into the cloud. All of the major configuration management tools have cloud orchestration plugins that can be leveraged, but there are also cloud-native tools that can dramatically improve the efficiency of managing your application lifecycle. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Alex Lovell-Troy, Director of Solutions Engineering at Pythian, presented a roadmap that can be leveraged by any organization to plan, analyze, evaluate, and execute on moving from configuration management tools to cloud orchestration tools. He also addressed the three major cloud vendors as well as some tools that will work with any cloud.

With more than 30 Kubernetes solutions in the marketplace, it's tempting to think Kubernetes and the vendor ecosystem has solved the problem of operationalizing containers at scale or of automatically managing the elasticity of the underlying infrastructure that these solutions need to be truly scalable. Far from it. There are at least six major pain points that companies experience when they try to deploy and run Kubernetes in their complex environments. In this presentation, the speaker will detail these pain points and explain how cloud can address them.
Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure using the Kublr platform, and how Kubernetes objects, such as persistent volumes, ingress rules, and services, can be used to abstract from the infrastructure.
