Enterprise Agility Executive Round Table - DevOps
You’ve made big investments to reduce your cycle time – or are considering doing so – but to fully realize those benefits in your enterprise, you need to get your short development cycles smoothly into production. Join Steven Borg, Co-Founder and Strategist at Northwest Cadence, for coffee and some illuminating conversation. Modern DevOps is more than the latest tools. It’s a mindset, and a strategy, to get your great software released as fast as you can write it.
Product launch day should be just like any other day at the office. Too often, though, teams in the last mile struggle to ship high-quality software at the same pace they can (or are trying to) code it.
Long before the “release it” button gets pushed, there are essential practices you can put in place to make your deployment a success. Are you testing early and often? Getting stakeholder feedback sooner with prototypes and “pre-totypes”? Do your teams integrate frequently to reduce late-breaking defects? Are you using the principles of lean product development to stay focused on small batches of the most valuable functionality?
Tie it all together with tools and techniques to get those short cycles out the door the moment they’re ready. Making IT/operations a full partner in your software lifecycle allows you to tap into what they know – like the non-functional requirements often overlooked until the end – to construct a process and a pipeline for reliable, repeatable delivery.
Sure, have that party on launch day – not because your team performed heroically, but because they didn’t need to.
Interested in more? Join us for an optional hour following this Round Table where we’ll close the day with some specific practices that you can use to begin your enterprise agile journey.
This event is for a select group of business and technology leaders to explore how to achieve continuous delivery at scale in the enterprise. Given the nature of this event, Round Table attendance is limited to one representative per company. Content will focus on concerns and solutions at the management and executive level.
