DevOps is a game-changing methodology that enables businesses to deliver digital services faster with higher quality and better user experience. But for developers, traditional IT has historically been viewed as an adversary that hampers agile innovation and limits the ability to deliver applications and services at high velocity. IT can add value in a meaningful and impactful way in a DevOps world by ensuring security and compliance, managing costs and production deployments, but this must be accomplished frictionlessly without impacting development velocity. Embotics CTO Scott Davis will explore how developers and IT teams can forge beneficial partnerships while implementing DevOps methodologies and seamlessly incorporating the values of non-intrusive governance, compliance and security validation through automation, continuous QA, shift-left performance testing and orchestrating staging/production deployments. The session will offer actionable insight into: - How developers can effectively leverage IT in complementary ways in a DevOps environment to deliver strategic business value without impeding velocity; - How developers can more closely collaborate with IT leadership, QA and operations to implement the right tools and processes across DevOps workflows; - And how IT can better support developers in driving the value and acceleration of DevOps and cloud adoption across their organizations.
