Decoding DevOps Conference by Infoseption Vivanta by Taj, MG Road, Bangalore – 15-16 April 2015

The thought behind the conference is to evangelize and demystify the key technical and cultural dimensions of adopting DevOps. The sessions, conducted by experts in this domain will covered both the hard – technology – and soft – organizational and cultural change for teamwork – aspects and also included case studies of DevOps adoption in addition to exposure to associated technologies and tools. 

Speaking at the conference, Brian Still, PhD, Director, Usability Research Lab and Chairman and Co Founder of Grinbath LLC said “In the last few years DevOps has transformed how businesses build, deploy, and monitor their products, and since so much of that work is done in India, it’s important that leaders here have opportunities to learn more about DevOps. Conferences like Decoding DevOps are essential in that learning and for this first installment of the conference Infoseption has done a remarkable job of bringing together an experienced set of DevOps people, from India and around the world, to share their knowledge” 

“DevOps is a journey. A journey where an organization empowers team members to take risks. DevOps empowered teams then apply technology and lean practices to make change happen continuously said Rodrigo Gonzalez CEO Clarive Software quote,. He added “You cannot speak about DevOps if the different app delivers stakeholders cannot speak properly with each other. No collaboration, no insight, no DevOps. My granmother is DevOps expert too. She knows as much as some if the so called devops experts I heard. It becomes a misused term. DevOps is where Dev marries Ops. You best are able to collaborate and share insight with one another before you marry…. DevOps should support the bimodal entreprise otherwise it is doomed to create another silio instead of reducing one. To our customers, DevOps is a journey. A journey where every individual changes based on the insight they get” 

In the last few years, the concept of a customer focused approach to delivery continuous value from IT projects is getting classified as DevOps. While there is no single standard or a knowledge base for DevOps adoption, many organizations have successfully adopted the essential concepts of DevOps to make their IT infrastructure robust and resilient.  

DevOps is usually defined as what it is not, rather than what it is – since the implication and approaches of DevOps is very contextual for each organization.

This conference is technology or methodology agnostic and will give one a comprehensive exposure to various aspects to start or accelerate your DevOps journey. It will cover basic to intermediate levels of depth in various sessions and is intended to address many of the essential knowledge requirements of CIOs, CTOs, Enterprise architects, IT Infrastructure architects, Designers, Developers, Testers, DBAs, Systems and Network administrators and Information Security professionals. 

The implementation of a DevOps culture into any organization requires an updated approach to the ways that organizations process data. Rather than having development teams deliver software to operations that invariably returns it for repair after field-testing, both teams collaborate from the beginning. The result is a straight line from start to finish as opposed to arcs and zigzags displayed on traditional ops charts.
