The Real Deal on DevOps
24th January 2012: 3:00pm - 4:00pm GMT
What is DevOps? Many people view DevOps as a response to the growing awareness that there is a disconnect between what is traditionally considered development activity and what is usually considered IT activity. What do development and IT need to do to work together? In this webinar you will learn the fundamentals of DevOps, cut through the hype, and address the fundamental question of how development and IT groups work together.
Attendees of this session will learn:
- How DevOps allows for continuous delivery
- To reduce risk with smaller, more frequent deliveries
- To leverage automation for continuous build, test, deploy and delivery
- How to take agility beyond development through to IT operations
