Here is how Jason Bloomberg expresses the Intellyx perspective:

Mobile technologies. Cloud computing. Social media. Big data. Internet of things.

The list of technology buzzwords never seems to end.

And yet - digital transformation isn't about the technology. It's about the customer.

Today's customers - both consumers and business-to-business - demand multiple technology touchpoints with the companies they buy from and work for.

This digital technology story is not all about the user interface. You must connect the user experience to existing systems of record in a complex, distributed, cloud-based world.

Every element of this elaborate dance must perform at top speed, every time. Customers demand nothing less.

Enterprises must rise to this challenge. You must nail the technology to be sure. You must also revamp your organization to meet changing customer demands.

And you have to do it faster and better, while never taking your eye off the customer. In other words, you must be agile.

So the dumpster is on fire. Again. The site's down. Your boss's face is an ever-deepening purple. And you begin debating whether you should join the #incident channel or call an ambulance to deal with his impending stroke. Yes, we know this is a developer's fault. There's plenty of time for blame later. Postmortems have a macabre name because they were once intended to be Viking-like funerals for someone's job. But we're civilized now. Sort of. So we call them post-incident reviews. Fires are never going to stop. We're human. We miss bugs. Or we fat finger a command - deleting dozens of servers and bringing down S3 in US-EAST-1 for hours - effectively halting the internet. These things happen.
Hackers took three days to identify and exploit a known vulnerability in Equifax’s web applications. I will share new data that reveals why three days (at most) is the new normal for DevSecOps teams to move new business /security requirements from design into production. This session aims to enlighten DevOps teams, security and development professionals by sharing results from the 4th annual State of the Software Supply Chain Report -- a blend of public and proprietary data with expert research and analysis.Attendees can join this session to better understand how DevSecOps teams are applying lessons from W. Edwards Deming (circa 1982), Malcolm Goldrath (circa 1984) and Gene Kim (circa 2013) to improve their ability to respond to new business requirements and cyber risks.

The digital transformation is real! To adapt, IT professionals need to transform their own skillset to become more multi-dimensional by gaining both depth and breadth of a wide variety of knowledge and competencies. Historically, while IT has been built on a foundation of specialty (or "I" shaped) silos, the DevOps principle of "shifting left" is opening up opportunities for developers, operational staff, security and others to grow their skills portfolio, advance their careers and become "T"-shaped.
