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.

A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage. It has become clear that we'll need much higher efficiency user experiences that can allow us to more easily and scalably work with the thousands of devices that will soon be in each of our lives. Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, which can process our conversational commands and orchestrate the outcomes we request across our personal and professional realm of connected devices.
The need for greater agility and scalability necessitated the digital transformation in the form of following equation: monolithic to microservices to serverless architecture (FaaS). To keep up with the cut-throat competition, the organisations need to update their technology stack to make software development their differentiating factor. Thus microservices architecture emerged as a potential method to provide development teams with greater flexibility and other advantages, such as the ability to deliver applications at warp speed using infrastructure as a service (IaaS) and platform as a service (PaaS) environments.
ChatOps is an emerging topic that has led to the wide availability of integrations between group chat and various other tools/platforms. Currently, HipChat is an extremely powerful collaboration platform due to the various ChatOps integrations that are available. However, DevOps automation can involve orchestration and complex workflows. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Himanshu Chhetri, CTO at Addteq, will cover practical examples and use cases such as self-provisioning infrastructure/applications, self-remediation workflows, integrating monitoring and complimenting integrations between Atlassian tools and other top tools in the industry.
The use of containers by developers -- and now increasingly IT operators -- has grown from infatuation to deep and abiding love. But as with any long-term affair, the honeymoon soon leads to needing to live well together ... and maybe even getting some relationship help along the way. And so it goes with container orchestration and automation solutions, which are rapidly emerging as the means to maintain the bliss between rapid container adoption and broad container use among multiple cloud hosts. This BriefingsDirect cloud services maturity discussion focuses on new ways to gain container orchestration, to better use serverless computing models, and employ inclusive management to keep the container love alive.
As DevOps methodologies expand their reach across the enterprise, organizations face the daunting challenge of adapting related cloud strategies to ensure optimal alignment, from managing complexity to ensuring proper governance. How can culture, automation, legacy apps and even budget be reexamined to enable this ongoing shift within the modern software factory? In her Day 2 Keynote at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Aruna Ravichandran, VP, DevOps Solutions Marketing, CA Technologies, was joined by a panel of industry experts and real-world practitioners who shared their insight into an emerging set of best practices that lie at the heart of today's digital transformation.
