Topic: 4 Quadrants of DevOps Maturity Model

In this talk, we will map the enterprise DevOps journey to the DevOps Quadrant Maturity Model. We will discuss the characteristics of organizations within each quadrant. We will present practical process, tools and leadership strategies for crossing the chasm from an organization’s current quadrant to the next level of maturity.
Based on experience guiding large organizations in implementing CI, CD and, ultimately, DevOps at scale we have identified four maturity levels. These levels examine culture, process and tools to assess where an organization currently sits in their DevOps journey and that form the basis for growing and extending DevOps in the enterprise. Most organizations on the journey to DevOps map to one (or more) of these four areas.

The quadrants are:
*Quadrant #1: Team-Level Agile Upstream
*Quadrant #2: Team-Level Continuous Delivery
*Quadrant #3: Enterprise Agile Upstream
*Quadrant #4: Enterprise DevOps

By attending this session the audience will:
Gain a new, simplified framework for quantifying and communicating their organization’s DevOps maturity
Learn practical best practices and strategies, based on real-world experiences in enabling DevOps in the enterprise [as appropriate]
