Abstract: Conventional product development thinking forces a tradeoff between the rate of innovation (i.e. development velocity) and quality (and availability), often depicted as an indifference curve along the two dimensions. However, by investing in automation and other DevOps best-practices, one can shift the curve to increase both rate of innovation and quality. We'll highlight a few key areas, with past examples from Netflix, that are especially effective.

Abstract: The Lean Roots of DevOps DevOps takes a Lean view of ‘streamlining’ the delivery pipeline by eliminating bottlenecks. The Toyota approach to Lean Manufacturing streamlined the assembly line with ‘Kaizen’ or Continuous Improvement. Methodologies like SaFE take agile approaches to the next step by introducing true Lean approaches to eliminating bottlenecks by leveraging lean measurements. DevOps extends this Lean approach to the entire Application Delivery process in the Enterprise - from the Line of business to development to QA to operations. This session will explores the lean roots of DevOps and how Lean practices are being leveraged to drive DevOps adoptions in Enterprises.

Abstract: Being Agile Means Being Able To Control The Flow This seems to be the decade of Agility. Businesses want to be more dynamic and fluid. They want the organization to be prepared to respond to market changes more quickly, introduce new products faster, and respond to problems that occur more rapidly. To accomplish this goal, the business will have to let go of some of the ways that they do things today. They will have to re-engineer processes to be more composable and componentized so that they are less static. They will have to build transparency into the pipeline and manage how products and service requests enter and exit the development pipeline. Agility is achievable given that organizations identify and mitigate key risk factors prior to starting and are willing to commit to looking critically at the way they have been operating the business. This session will look at approaches for identifying hurdles, mitigating risks for adoption and facilitating optimal flow of work across the business.

Abstract: The Key to DevOps Success - Managing Cross-Silo Collaboration. Collaboration is essential to DevOps, yet how to do it is often unclear with many teams falling back on ineffective conference calls, instant messaging, documents, and SharePoint sites. In this keynote, ITinvolve chief technical evangelist, Matthew Selheimer, will share a vision for a next generation “DevOps 2.0” where collaboration, continuous documentation, and knowledge capture are combined with automation toolchains to enable rapid innovation and deployment. Matt will apply this vision to practical DevOps questions such as how do we more effectively collaborate on changing requirements across all stakeholders without creating an additional burden, and how can we more effectively merge "creation" with "operations" activities to enable continuous, seamless deployments? These questions and more will also be explored through a live demonstration.

Abstract: Is Capacity Planning Dead? Planning for capacity can be daunting when trying to move at the DevOps pace. Changing requirements and workloads make it impossible. In order to deliver a platform that is resilient, fast and scalable you have to solve the workload management problem. What goes where and for how long does it stay there. This means that no action can be handle in a vacuum and that all factors must be considered. In a highly dynamic environment managing capacity real time is better. Learn about how looking at infrastructure data from an economic perspective can help deliver a better platform and, potentially, do it automatically.

Abstract: Provision, configure, monitor and manage. Those are the four main steps in the lifecycle of a server. Chef and Puppet are great tools for provisioning and configuring servers, but when those servers are up and running, the same tools are not great at the final two steps: monitoring and managing. In this talk we’ll discuss the tools that we have found to be the most apt for monitoring servers and managing access. We’ll share methods and products that we’ve found to be effective, focusing on ease of use, security and efficiency.

Abstract: Minimizing platform uncertainty with Docker Deploying software successfully and predictably requires a level of certainty and consistency in the underlying environment and configuration. In order for developers, testers, and operations people to perform their jobs effectively, platforms as close as possible to production need to be available for testing and tuning at every opportunity to all levels in a development organization. In this presentation we seek to highlight how we have used docker to enable teams to manage complexity in their infrastructure, enabling them up to move faster, and try new things with fewer consequences with a higher level of certainty.

Abstract: KickaaS Security with DevOps and Cloud Most DevOps pros implement a heck of a lot of security on a daily basis, but they aren’t necessarily full-time security pros. This session takes a security focus and shows specific techniques for both integrating better security into DevOps, and using DevOps to dramatically improve your organization’s security through workflow automation. We’ll start with an overview of the advantages of DevOps for security (designed for you to take back and explain to your security team), followed by technical demonstrations to implement the recommendations. The session finishes with a discussion of Software Defined Security and coding techniques to automate three common security workflows.
