Transforming Traditional Enterprise Software Development Processes by applying DevOps and Agile Principles at Scale
How to transform traditional Enterprise Software development processes by applying DevOps and Agile principles at scale instead of the more typical approach of scaling scrum. This approach starts with clarity in business objectives for the transformation. Next it highlights the importance of creating an Enterprise level continuous improvement process, which is very different from an aggregation of team level continuous improvement process. One of the most important steps for creating an Agile Enterprise is keeping code releasable across the Enterprise. This presentation will go deep on the fundamentals of Devops, CI, and CD based on what has been found to be successful transforming legacy organizations. The final step will provide a framework for re-thinking the planning process to provide an Enterprise level backlog and long-term commitments.
