As a global provider of software products and services that enable businesses to achieve DevOps success, we are excited to be part of Gartner’s next premier conference. Catch us at the Gartner Application Strategies & Solutions Summit 2017 at Las Vegas, NV, December 4-6 for the ultimate digital experience.
DevOps is rapidly moving beyond development and operations into other IT groups – including Security, QA, and Testing – that contribute to the software development lifecycle. Despite its popularity, people in the field have only a vague idea about what DevOps is and what it can do for them.
DevOps requires a cultural shift in organizations that adopt it. Failing to successfully make the transition from waterfall, agile, lean, or other project management and general management philosophies can destroy a company. But the situation is not all doom and gloom.
The DevOps Enterprise Summit 2017 (November 13-15, 2017 at the Hilton Union Square in San Francisco) is described by the organizers as ‘a conference for the leaders of large, complex organizations implementing DevOps principles and practices. The event programming emphasizes both evolving technical and architectural practices and the methods needed to lead widespread change efforts in large organizations.’
The IT industry is changing, and if you want to thrive, your organization has to change with it. This was reinforced at the Gartner Symposium/ITxpo 2017 from which I’ve just returned.
Reduce development costs. Speed up product development. Reduce errors. Get your teams working together smoothly. These are all benefits of a digital transformation that integrates teams, processes, applications, data, tools, and distribution.
If you attended last week’s Atlassian Summit U.S. 2017, it was easy to get overwhelmed by all the useful information. You would have seen how to make your organization run more smoothly, improve communications, and increase its effectiveness. If you weren’t able to attend, you’re probably wondering what you missed.
Wow, what a week. Those who attended Atlassian Summit 2017 undoubtedly left with more tools for success than they arrived with. Although this was a two day event for most attendees, for partners and exhibitors (like the team from Go2Group), and for those who attended certification and training sessions on Monday and Tuesday, this was a very full four days.
Atlassian Summit 2017, being held this week in San Jose, CA is a gathering of Atlassian users, Atlassian partners, the Atlassian team, and people interested in learning more about how Atlassian’s products can help their organizations to function more effectively. The Summit officially started on Wednesday, September 13. However, on Monday evening, a Partner’s reception was held, and on Tuesday, a special day for Atlassian partners was presented. Go2Group, Atlassian Platinum and Atlassian Enterprise partners, were at the Summit on both days. On Wednesday, September 13, we posted a blog about the events of the first two days.
