Why DevOps?

Integrated Agile approach is the need of hour and DevOps is the enabler of integrated Agile Approach. DevOps is a reliable, scalable and collaborative method of communication between development team and the other member of IT teams. Here is the set of best practices that DevOps enables.

  • Continuous Integration: The few features are easily and quickly integrated in the existing system.
  • Continuous Deployment: release management becomes easy.
  • Continuous Feedback: it enables easy collection and integration of the feedback from end customer.

Imagine a world where product owners, Development, QA, IT Operations, and Infosec work together, not only to help each other, but also to ensure that the overall organization succeeds. By working toward a common goal, they enable the fast flow of planned work into production, while achieving world-class stability, reliability, availability, and security.

~From Devops handbook

About SAFe Devops Certification –

A SAFe 4 Certified DevOps Practitioner (SDP) is a SAFe professional responsible for improving the complete flow of value through a Continuous Delivery Pipeline from idea to operational solution. Key areas of responsibility include participating in Continuous Exploration, Continuous Integration, Continuous Deployment, Release-on-Demand, continuous testing, continuous security, and building a culture of shared responsibility.

In this two days’ workshop you will master the Devops competencies needed to accelerate time-to-market by improving the flow of value through the Continuous Delivery Pipeline.

You will be able to map the current value stream through their delivery pipeline from idea to cash and identify practices that will eliminate bottlenecks to flow.

The two days workshops will build an understanding of the complete flow of value from Continuous Exploration to Continuous Integration, Continuous Deployment, and Release on Demand.

You will explore SAFe’s CALMR (Culture, Automation, Lean, Measure, Recover) approach to DevOps, which helps create a culture of shared responsibility for the full spectrum of Solution delivery.

The CALMR Approach helps align people, processes, and technology throughout the organization to achieve faster time-to-market.

You will be empowered with the tools you need to execute an implementation plan for improving their delivery pipeline, and the knowledge you need to support the plan.
