Event description


Every business wants to improve, and today it is mandatory to deliver applications much faster while at the same time meeting ever growing expectations of reliability. IT departments may be used to being measured on the reliability of applications, but this new requirement to deliver much faster is in conflict with the practices that have supported that.

At this seminar, James Stewart and Josh Dvir will inspect the current practices of many organizations, and explain how new expectations to deliver faster can actually provide us with ways to be more reliable as well as more flexible. The solutions will come from within the people currently working in the organization. Usually by fixing existing policies and establishing a culture of continuous improvement.

The agenda:

9:00 - 9:30 - Registration

9:30 - 10:00 - Welcome and Keynote presentation by James Stewart

-- Change and transformation are terms easily thrown around. The recent focus on them reflects growing pressure on organizations to respond to a world filled with new challenges: new competition, new threats and rapidly changing customer expectations.
With examples from a range of organizations in the public and private sectors, and with a particular emphasis on cybersecurity, participants will hear how embracing the principles of the DevOps movement can have an impact well beyond the mechanics of delivering software.

10:00 - 11.15 - Achieving ambitious goals

-- An interactive problem-solving session with game elements
The seminar participants are offered to take part in an interactive case study process. 5-6 people are chosen from the group to present their current deployment situation at the company they work at with the purpose of improving the process and the frequency of their deployments. The set goal is: “We want to reach deployment frequency to be every 5 minutes”. The participants are given aliases to make it anonymous and allow ease of information sharing about their internal processes/status.

11:15 - 11:45 - Coffee/Tea Break
