Cloud-native

Cloud-native DevOps is about structuring your DevOps processes so you can benefit from cloud technologies. It’s about using containers, Kubernetes and similar technology, which mean that you can boost automation and scalability. But it requires a change in culture and the learning of new tools and will be a big shift if you’ve mainly been doing DevOps with on-premises technologies. In this theme, we’ll be exploring what cloud-native DevOps looks like, the technologies that underpin the approach, and how you can introduce it to your organisation.

  • Kubernetes
  • Containerisation Orchestration
  • Cloud Native in the data centre
  • Microservices with Service Mesh
  • Tracing
  • Infrastructure as a Code

DevOps in the Enterprise

Businesses are in an arms race to release code quickly and continually upgrade and improve products. DevOps is an ideal solution to help you do this, yet it requires a big change in thinking, practices and technologies. How it is implemented will also change from one organisation to the next, so you need a coherent strategy and KPIs. At larger businesses with legacy infrastructure, implementing DevOps is very complex.

  • Automating workloads/checkpoints/removing barriers to dev
  • Hire, buy or automate
  • Proprietary services vs. open source stacks
  • The cultural shift to a systems approach
  • Goodbye silos
  • Understanding and evolving the enterprise IT matrix
  • Seamless integrations
  • Hybrid PaaS

Observability

If something is not observable, you cannot monitor it. This is a challenge when using the DevOps approach because you may be pushing out code to a large number of containers and microservices, which makes it harder than ever to monitor what’s going on. What’s more, the whole point of DevOps is to get feedback – so if you can’t observe problems, you can’t act on them either. Fortunately, new technologies are available which help you to automate the collection of monitoring data, which means you can observe it better too. In these sessions, we’ll be exploring novel ways of observing, monitoring and analysing feedback.

  • Powering better DevOps collaboration
  • Debugging on the go
  • Continuous exploration
  • AIOps, but more

Securing the DevOps Landscape

DevSecOps builds on DevOps by encouraging everyone in the software development and deployment process to take responsibility for security. By shifting security to the left and making sure that cybersecurity controls and processes are embedded at every stage of the DevOps process, the goal is to reduce the risk of breaches while also further speeding up time to deployment. This is as much about culture and processes as it is about any specific technology - although some DevSecOps processes can be automated. In these sessions, we’ll be looking at how DevOps can integrate security considerations.

Human Factors

DevOps is fundamentally about changing business culture. To make a success of this approach to software development, you need to make a wholesale change to internal processes, break down silos and introduce agile thinking across departments. Many organisations stumble at this stage – especially in larger, less flexible contexts. These sessions will look at how to introduce DevOps, get people on board and achieve the benefits of the model. We’ll also explore skills and training needed to introduce DevOps, and ways of getting everyone up to speed.
