As one of the fastest growing contributors to modern IT system development, the DevOps eco-system is loaded with technology developments and market trends that are constantly evolving.
Both ground breaking technology advances- including microservices, containers, serverless computing, Kubernetes- and forging market forces- like “CALMS”, DevSecOps, DataOps, Open Approaches- add to the complexity of understanding how to optimise a DevOps process and infrastructure. Getting it right delivers unrivalled advantages in system development, maintenance and evolution, but getting it wrong can be costly, laborious and time consuming. Navigating this minefield to find a solution that suits your specific business needs is essential.
DevOps Live offers two dedicated theatres of content addressing the latest technology developments and market trends; providing access to real life case studies from Europe’s leading DevOps programmes alongside in depth, technical outlines of the markets leading and newest technologies.
It's here where the EMEA DevOps community will address the top 5 challenges and trends over the next 18 months, through dedicated streams of content hosted by the industry's leading case studies and examples of successful DevOps implementations and delivery. Development areas for 2019 cover:
High performing teams & culture
The culture and performance of DevOps teams is critical to sustainable success. Presently, however, teams are still being hampered by communication gaps and departments each operating as the project lead rather than sharing the load. This stream will discover how to breakdown these silos, improve communication between the development and security teams and change up sprint retrospectives to be more effective and simulate motivation. All in all, be inspired to share learning experiences, common goals and have greater integration between teams.
Securing the DevOps landscape
By now, we’ve all heard of DevSecOps, but how do we foster an environment where we can safely deliver codes in an agile architecture? We will consider the key elements to secure this landscape including approaches to continuous feedback, deploying automation - both developed in house and using open source tools. This stream will go further and explore the successes and challenges from organisations using machine learning and how to create a testing environment without impacting the customer.
Cloud native, containers and microservices
There is currently a surge in machine learning and AI deployment across cloud native environments and microservices. From test automation, ML in Kubernetes to the intelligence layer that is continuous verification; it’s clear that, if not already, machine learning should be your top priority. But what are the other trends and challenges in this environment and what are the key learnings from like-minded DevOps teams? Hear all this and more.
DevOps in the enterprise
In a large organisation, DevOps teams might be constrained to the formalities of the IT department, but that doesn’t mean agile is out the window. Using case study examples, this stream will tackle the main challenges in enterprise DevOps from adoption, scaling in highly regulated environments, orchestration and ensuring on-time delivery.
New trends: AIOps, ML and DataOps
This stream is all about the latest trends, tools and myth debunking. It will consider the latest use cases of AIOps and the unique challenges when compared to AL and ML. Also, learn all things DataOps, from organisations that have increased revenue, driven efficiencies and customer experience as well as faced hurdles in data quality. Join us to see what will be next on your DevOps to-do list and how to navigate the current trends.
