Become a key driver of DevOps transformation—and enable your enterprise to maximise the flow of value— when you certify as a SAFe DevOps Practitioner.

This two-day SAFe DevOps training course provides a comprehensive overview for understanding the SAFe DevOps skills needed to accelerate time-to-market by improving the flow of value through the Continuous Delivery Pipeline. You will map the current value stream through the delivery pipeline from idea to cash, and identify practices that will eliminate bottlenecks to flow. The course will build an understanding of the complete flow of value from Continuous Exploration to Continuous Integration, Continuous Deployment, and Release on Demand.
