DevOps Data Collection: Measuring and Quantifying DevOps Outcomes
DevOps Data Collection: Measuring and Quantifying DevOps Outcomes

DevOps is a world surrounded by information, starting from a single commit and ending in roll out to production.In this talk, I'll introduce you to the world of Taboola DevOps data collection, to better understand what goes on under the hood.

The system we've developed in-house helps us collect and analyse the entire DevOps process from the very first commit all the way to production.

It provides us a full clear view with a drill-down toolset that helps keep us away from the dark side.
Our KPI's moved from being abstracted ideas to data driven goals, which we can measure and act upon.

We're living in a data driven world when all business components are based on our clients action and reaction, why not doing the same thing within our DevOps eco-system?

Containerization, Multi-Cloud and DevOps – How to Deliver a Flawless Customer Experience in a Dynamic World
Containerization, Multi-Cloud and DevOps – How to Deliver a Flawless Customer Experience in a Dynamic World

Container adoption is increasing because the technology is well-suited for our multi-cloud world. Containers make your workloads more dynamic and they enable portability across different cloud environments. According to research83% of companies either are testing the technology or running containers in productionMore and more development teams also leverage existing services to faster delivery value to their stakeholders. And with DevOps practices, the rate of application deployments is rapidly increasing.  

Find out how to efficiently manage container technology and multi-cloud services and automated deployments in support of a flawless customer experience. How can you get an accurate picture of what is deployed across multiple clouds? How can you increase change velocity through intelligent decisions about automation? How can you scale customer support without impacting developer productivity? How can you collaborate with external vendors, if something breaks?

BMC Helix enables companies to transform from traditional IT service management practices to a more automated, predictive, and proactive approach that is enabling DevOps-centric organizations to be more efficient and to deliver better customer experience, leveraging machine learning (ML) and chatbots.

Scaling DevOps Practices: The Role of Management
Scaling DevOps Practices: The Role of Management


Companies that are going through their DevOps journey in a successful, measurable and methodical way have one thing in common - a strong and consistent level of leadership sponsorship. Strong leadership and management philosophy are critical to seeing sustained results of a transformation. More often than not, we see IT managers fall prey to all-too-common pitfalls, and lose sight of the true purpose of their DevOps journey. How do I guide my teams during the various stages of their DevOps evolution? What values are important to reinforce? How do I balance top-down mandate with bottom-up empowerment? How do I align what my teams want to do with the needs of the business?

In the session, Padmashree Koneti addresses IT managers with effective strategies and approaches to being supportive and transformational leaders in guiding their organizations. Attendees will walk away with new strategies for how to gain the trust of their teams while also aligning their DevOps transformation with true and lasting business impact for their companies.

Continuous Reliability: A Proactive Approach to Balancing Agility & Stability in DevOps
Continuous Reliability: A Proactive Approach to Balancing Agility & Stability in DevOps

Every enterprise undergoing technology transformation faces reliability challenges. In an ever-changing environment with a growing global competitive landscape, organizations need to be nimble and move quickly – without compromising the services their customers are depending on.To solve for the agility part of this equation, many development and DevOps teams turn to new processes, tools and architectures like continuous integration (CI), continuous delivery/deployment (CD), microservices and more. These advancements allow them to iterate quickly and speed software delivery. However, these practices can introduce new layers of complexity and often put stability at risk.

Enter Continuous Reliability.

Continuous Reliability (CR) is a new framework that brings together automated code quality gates and contextual feedback loops within a CI/CD workflow to help organizations overcome the agility-stability paradox and proactively find and fix errors BEFORE they make it to production. CR can mean the difference between hoping your code might work in production, and actually knowing it will.
In this session, Tal Weiss, co-founder and CTO of OverOps, will define continuous reliability, provide actionable steps and best practices based on real-world examples, and show how attendees can implement CR within their own organization.

Ultra-Modern Major Incident Management
Ultra-Modern Major Incident Management

Alerting platforms brought notifications into the modern age. Push messages, voice calls, and extensive on-call scheduling features have reduced the Mean Time to Engage, Escalate, and Resolve. This was Modern Incident Management. But in this day of ChatOps, remote workers, and global development teams, the paradigm must shift again. With multiple ticketing systems, chat tools, status pages, and data sources – even within the same organization! – you need to collaborate and inform across teams more than ever.

Sure this can be achieved with copy-pasting and chair swiveling; but why burn valuable time that could be better spent actually troubleshooting the issue? You need a way to connect your tools quickly and easily, without hand-coding every trigger and response to keep your services available for customers. For these reasons and more, we launched xMatters Flow Designer. Watch as we use Flow Designer to build a new Ultra-Modern Incident Workflow for Splunk Alerts that involves Slack, Jira, and Jenkins. We’ll use the drag, drop and connect actions to reduce developer workload and resolve an incident before it can affect customers.

Proactive Monitoring
Proactive Monitoring

Though there is a long lineup of monitoring tools, both SAS and on-prem, companies struggle to cover all the aspects of monitoring and fail to find issues with production environments proactively due to 2 issues mainly:

- tools cannot cover all the monitoring requirements out-of-the-box as application monitoring is custom in nature and companies don't build monitoring-aware applications.

- lack of understanding of all aspects of monitoring with those responsible for rolling out monitoring solutions which result in sub-optimal solutions.

The presentation would cover how following aspects of monitoring are addressed systematically by instrumenting the applications, picking right tools and rolling out a process that focuses on fine-tuning overall monitoring continually.

- System monitoring
- Platform monitoring
- Application monitoring
- Log aggregation & operations analytics
- Last-mile monitoring
- Meta-monitoring

Continuous Testing versus Test Automation: What’s the Difference?
Continuous Testing versus Test Automation: What’s the Difference?

The past few years have brought a sea change in the way applications are architected, developed, and consumed—increasing both the complexity of testing and the business impact of software failures.

How can software testing professionals keep pace with modern application delivery, given the trends that impact both architectures (cloud, microservices, and APIs) and processes (DevOps, agile, and continuous delivery)? This is where continuous testing comes in.

Attend this session to discover why and how continuous testing is different from traditional test automation.

You will learn:

The three main differences between continuous testing and test automation
Where traditional test automation falls short in modern development and delivery processes
How testers can address each of the three key elements of continuous testing
How to integrate various testing practices in order to achieve the speed and agility required for release.

Reinventing Talent Acquisition DevOps Style
Reinventing Talent Acquisition DevOps Style

Just as brilliant drummers have their pick of bands, top cloud-native developers and project managers can be choosy about their employers. They’re the rock stars of the business and they know it. If you’re not a “destination company” like Amazon, Facebook or Google, how do you entice top talent to work for you? And if you’re being wooed, what are the tip-offs that you’ll be valued?
We’ve been asking ourselves the same questions, and in this talk I'll share an approach that’s working. Your company can become more of a destination company in today’s “seller’s market” by applying a DevOps mindset to the way you recruit, hire, onboard and retain talent.
