The Magic Carpet Ride- A Business Perspective on DevOps

Em Campbell-Pretty
Jan 19, 2016

Having problems convincing your stakeholders to try DevOps? Confused about how DevOps can work at scale? Or even just wondering where to start with DevOps? Don’t worry you aren’t the only one!

Imagine being the business owner of an application that was the complete antithesis of Continuous Delivery i.e. no delivery ever! Ok, that might be a slight exaggeration. Let’s just say the realisation of benefits from projects developed on this application were few and far between.

You are presented with Agile - a silver bullet - and you wait, and you wait and you wait, but the magic doesn’t happen. Eventually someone starts a conversation about “agile technical practises”, finally you know the spell to cast to make the magic carpet fly, or so you would think…..

If you want to hear the rest of the story you will just have to attend watch the video below. Set in the context of an Enterprise Data Warehouse, this session tells the story of how a scaled agile adoption created the case for change and subsequent implementation of DevOps practices. This tale from the trenches will provide insights into both the mistakes made along the way and the ideas that made all the difference, in completely transforming the delivery capability of the organisation.

Presentation at Lean Kanban Central Europe (LKCE15) in Munich druing November 2015.
