    With warm regards,

    Topic Abstract:

    For the last few years, transitioning to a DevOps delivery model has become a paramount goal for many IT organizations as the need for efficiency (speed), effectiveness (built-in quality), and competitive advantage (business value) has reached critical mass. Not surprising for many, testing continues to be the biggest challenge for organizations pushing for full DevOps adoption. Whether it’s the lack of test automation, the lack of process maturity, or the lack of a comprehensive test data management strategy, many DevOps teams are failing to deliver built-in quality at speed. In this presentation, get an inside view of the current quality landscape, how it is impacting DevOps quality, and learn some practical ways to incrementally move your quality teams towards DevOps readiness.

    Learning Points:

    -Top Quality Challenges

    -Defining DevOps

    -Defining DevOps Quality

    -4 Practical Ways to Move Toward DevOps Readiness
