DevOps and the Enterprise: Perfect Partners


DevOps Summit Feb. 21, 2013, Amsterdam, NL

DevOps can and should drive competitive advantage in the enterprise. All too often it is seen as "just the latest fad," or not able to deal with enterprise-class problems. In this session, Heinold will outline a framework to help drive the DevOps conversation in the IT organization. At its core, DevOps is an Agile methodology that stresses collaboration between those building software (traditionally Dev), those deploying software (traditionally Ops), and those using the software. He will discuss how to build a continuous delivery pipeline which supports the needs of all these stake holders without giving up on traceability, compliance or governance.




Case Study: Business Agility through DevOps


ALM Summit Feb. 28, 2013, Kensington, UK

For the world's leading mail and logistics services group, rapid growth paired with a strong push into online services accelerated the business demand for new applications. In one division, there are more than 300 active, concurrent software projects, and most of the apps are critical to the core business.  Using a single platform to standardize all vital processes (for development, maintenance and operations) has enabled collaboration, created efficiencies and reduced cost. Heinold will discuss how applications can be managed and deployed at the pace demanded by the business without jeopardizing governance, visibility and oversight. Overall business agility improved as applications are delivered closely aligned and timed with the business needs.




Case study: What does an ALM service have to provide?


ALM Summit Feb. 28, 2013, Kensington, UK


www.unicom.co.uk/almconference




Cloud computing, Agile methodologies and DevOps have changed the requirements of a development infrastructure. Whether developing in the cloud or for the cloud – traditional ALM solutions run short without modernization and extension. This presentation provides thoughts and ideas on what a modern platform should provide as a service to developers, takes a look into the specialties of system engineering, embedded software and the co-existence with PLM.  Finally, it provides a framework and guidelines to help decide where infrastructure status is today and what the next steps should look like to upgrade it into a cloud-ready state.

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
