This presentation describes my interpretation of the Why and How of DevOps, and the key findings from my 15 year study of high-performing IT organizations, and how they simultaneously deliver stellar service levels and rapid implementation of new features into the production environment. Organizations employing DevOps practices such as Google, Amazon, Facebook, Etsy and Twitter are routinely deploying code into production hundreds, or even thousands, of times per day, while providing world-class availability, reliability and security. In contrast, most organizations struggle to do releases more every nine months. He will present how these high-performing organizations achieve this fast flow of work through Product Management and Development, through QA and Infosec, and into IT Operations. By doing so, other organizations can now replicate the extraordinary culture and outcomes enabling their organization to win in the marketplace.
