  4. 4. 4 Marc Hornbeek Principal Consultant - DevOps for Trace3, and Author for The DevOps Institute '' “Enterprises implementing DevOps and Continuous Delivery pipelines are twice as likely to exceed their profitability, market share and productivity goals. Yet, just a small minority of enterprises are achieving this kind of performance. Many struggle to realize DevOps and CD at all. [click to tweet]
  5. 5. 5 Steve Brown Director, DevOps Solutions N.A. at Lenovo '' The faster an organization can deliver code end-to-end in the development processes, the faster they can get their product to market and satisfy customer demand. The results are lower operational costs and higher profitability. With effective tools, infrastructure and good collaboration, there are very few risks. An organization risks its future if delivery is not fast. [click to tweet]
  6. 6. 6 Automation has played a major role in reducing low-value repetitive work, but the real value is driven from collaboration driving greater efficiency and effectiveness. '' Stephen Thair Co-Founder of DevOpsGuys [click to tweet]
  7. 7. '' JP Morgenthal CTO, Application Services, DXC Technology 77 Fostering a culture of Continuous Delivery first requires that there be support and investment for Continual Improvement. With regard to software development, this means being able to release to production in a stream-like fashion versus a rock-like manner. That is, Continuous Delivery should flow like a stream rather than make a ripple or thud as a rock dropping every so often. [click to tweet]
  8. 8. 8 Jason Hand Author of O'Reilly's #ChatOps Book and ChatOps For Dummies, Evangelist for VictorOps '' Focusing on providing CI/CD alone doesn't provide much value unless the organizational culture is setup to embrace it. Encouraging more collaboration, transparency, measuring as much as possible, as well as automation allows for conditions to exist where CI/CD efforts can emerge and be embraced. Above all, Continuous “Improvement" should be the focus. [click to tweet]
  9. 9. Matthew Woolly Owner, Woolly Mammoth Limited 9 '' We are increasingly arriving at a time where Continuous Delivery is becoming the gold standard. Anyone without it is getting left behind. Happy developers make good products. [click to tweet]

  11. 11. 11 Wesley Sluss Senior DevOps Engineer at FiscalNote, Inc '' To flip the switch requires a renaissance. Not only will the architecture change, but so does the culture, collaboration of engineers, workflow, and approach to design. Those are often overlooked and are paramount to the survival of flipping the switch. [click to tweet]
  12. 12. 1212 Costa Galazios Sr. DevOps Engineer at Golden Frog, GmbH '' It's not so much flipping a switch as it is a metamorphosis; a paradigm shift in how an organization approaches the journey code takes from the developer's mind to a production environment. [click to tweet]
  13. 13. 13 '' To make the shift, developers must release code regularly and their environment must be reliable for daily production turn. Something like base code should be in all the environments so it can be in sync when the latest code is moved to production. Daroga Yadav DevOps Lead at Cognizant [click to tweet]
  14. 14. 1414 Nicole Forsgren, PhD CEO and Chief | DevOps Research and Assessment (DORA) '' Three things that are important to Continuous Delivery, regardless of the tooling your team chooses to use, are: 1. Comprehensive, fast, and reliable test and deployment automation 2. Trunk-based development and continuous integration 3. Application code and app and system configuration all in version control DevOps and Continuous Delivery processes have a strong heritage from lean management practices. [click to tweet]
