ITIL and DevOps | #@DevOpsSummit #DevOps #ITIL #APM #Microservices

How can teams who already subscribe to an ITIL-way of working adopt DevOps practices, and where should they focus their efforts?

ITIL, formerly an acronym for Information Technology Infrastructure Library, is a set of practices for IT service management (ITSM) that focuses on aligning IT services with the needs of business.

ITIL has been around for a long time, and has helped large teams (particularly those that are heavily regulated) manage the way services are delivered in a predictable and consistent way, as a way to mitigate risk. DevOps, as we know, has a very similar goal.

What is the relationship between DevOps and ITIL? What can one learn from the other? is it ITIL vs. DevOps, or ITIL and DevOps? Can they co-exist?

On the next episode of #c9d9 we're discussing ITIL and DevOps:

  • What are the similarities and the differences between DevOps and ITIL?
  • Do they complement each other, or are they at odds?
  • How can teams who already subscribe to an ITIL-way of working adopt DevOps practices, and where should they focus their efforts?
  • How you can foster DevOps practices in large, ITIL-based organizations?

Join us on March 8 at 10am PST to learn more from these speakers:

@DevOpsSummit Stories
The past few years have brought a sea change in the way applications are architected, developed, and consumed-increasing both the complexity of testing and the business impact of software failures. How can software testing professionals keep pace with modern application delivery, given the trends that impact both architectures (cloud, microservices, and APIs) and processes (DevOps, agile, and continuous delivery)? This is where continuous testing comes in. Attend this session to discover why and how continuous testing is different from traditional test automation.
At CloudEXPO Silicon Valley, June 24-26, 2019, Digital Transformation (DX) is a major focus with expanded DevOpsSUMMIT and FinTechEXPO programs within the DXWorldEXPO agenda. Successful transformation requires a laser focus on being data-driven and on using all the tools available that enable transformation if they plan to survive over the long term. A total of 88% of Fortune 500 companies from a generation ago are now out of business. Only 12% still survive. Similar percentages are found throughout enterprises of all sizes.

Cloud-Native thinking and Serverless Computing are now the norm in financial services, manufacturing, telco, healthcare, transportation, energy, media, entertainment, retail and other consumer industries, as well as the public sector. The widespread success of cloud computing is driving the DevOps revolution in enterprise IT. Now as never before, development teams must communicate and collaborate in a dynamic, 24/7/365 environment. There is no time to wait for long development cycles that produce software that is obsolete at launch. DevOps may be disruptive, but it is essential. DevOpsSUMMIT at CloudEXPO expands the DevOps community, enable a wide sharing of knowledge, and educate delegates and technology providers alike.
Is your enterprise growing the right skills to fight the digital transformation (DX) battles? With 69% of enterprises describing the DX skill drought as being soft skills, rather than technology skills, are you ready to survive against disrupters? The next wave of business disruption is already crashing on your enterprise as AI, Blockchain and IoT change the nature and location of business. Now is the time to prepare. Drawing on experiences with large and midsize enterprises, Marco Coulter tabulates the skills needed to survive DX while innovating at scale. He will start with a focus on the ‘lingua franca' or common language between business and technology needed for today's digitally savvy or agile enterprise.
