Enterprise DevOps and the Cloud


Published on

Cloud and DevOps are independent but mutually reinforcing strategies for delivering business value through IT. However, the pace of disruption is accelerating.

If cloud is an instrument, then DevOps is the conductor that plays it. DevOps principles are transforming the way leading enterprises are shortening work cycles, increasing delivery frequency, and helping them adopt an attitude of continual experimentation.

These slides were used in a recent webcast featuring Kevin Behr, co-author of The Phoenix Project and VisibleOps Handbook and Mike Baukes, co-founder of ScriptRock who explored key aspects of how cloud computing can be leveraged to deliver ideas to market faster by activating DevOps principles in your IT Enterprise.
