DevOps is Not a Department
If you think of DevOps as a job title or a department name, you need to come to this session.
The term “DevOps” is entering its second decade, and the concept is getting watered down to simply describing modern scripting skills. Remember, the central idea of DevOps is a philosophy to break down or bridge silos between groups. Your organization might have a DevOps Department, but in most cases it isn’t (or shouldn’t be) what we see today.
Join this session to learn how applying DevOps to your organization as a guiding philosophy that influences culture, rather than as a functional term that defines capabilities, can push your DevOps transformation journey forward.
