General Session: The Reason Enterprises Are Failing at DevOps: To Predict the Future, Look to the Past

Enterprises are universally struggling to understand where the new tools and methodologies of DevOps fit into their organizations, and are universally making the same mistakes. These mistakes are not unavoidable, and in fact, avoiding them gifts an organization with sustained competitive advantage, just like it did for Japanese Manufacturing Post WWII.

The fundamental mistake is believing that DevOps fits on top of the legacy management of people and things, the way we've always done things since the industrial revolution, and it does not. DevOps is not an addition but a replacement: A creeping revolution in the principles of how we run IT. When you look at the History of American Manufacturing and the costly cycles of failure that preceded adaptation to modern practices, you see the present and the future of global IT. Those that could adapt survived. Those that could not died.

Learning history's lessons is an imperative for survival in a world where the most important skill is adapting to continually accelerating change. In this session we'll cover the specific actions necessary to adopt the new philosophy and transform into next generation organizations instead of joining former giants like Blockbuster and Toys-R-Us in history's dustbin of cautionary tales.
