An Introduction to DevOps
Businesses today want it all: new features faster, more feedback from customers and highly available applications. These needs tend to put Developers and IT Operation teams at odds. Developers want to push to production faster. They also want to dig deep into production environments to improve the performance and stability of the applications. Operation teams want to lock down production to ensure stability and comply with the ever growing list of compliance standards. So who wins? With DevOps, everyone! We will discuss what DevOps should mean to your organization and how your teams can operate in harmony using the latest practices and tools.
