Start Your Enterprise DevOps Engine

Filed in Cloud Industry Insights by Brian Jawalka | February 11, 2013 9:00 am

DevOps is the tech term du jour, but it is much more than a hot buzzword. DevOps is a key component to successful cloud adoption and the future of enterprise IT. Applications and app development fuel IT and it is imperative for both developers and IT operators to understand cloud integration and the complexities that come with it.

Essentially, DevOps success will make or break an enterprise, and both sides – the Devs and the Ops – must work together. It’s also up to enterprises to buy in to this new model and align their resources to embrace the shift to DevOps and to do what’s right for the business.

Luckily, we’re here to help you navigate the DevOps revolution in the Enterprise Cloud Forum. During the next installment of the Enterprise Cloud Forum[1] (Wednesday, February 13 at 11 a.m. CST), we’ll teach you to “Tear Down Silos and Build Your Enterprise DevOps Engine.” During this roundtable discussion, we’ll guide your business toward DevOps success by touching on key topics like how to promote healthy cross-functional collaboration between your development and operations organizations; how to implement a mandate for DevOps; and how Rackspace IT is employing DevOps in its journey to the open cloud.

Rackspace Vice President of Software Application Development Krishna Prasad and I will lead the discussion. The Enterprise Cloud Forum, powered by the Rackspace Advisory Services Team[2], is a virtual roundtable that brings together both IT and business ideas to help drive your future IT strategy. These hour-long sessions are split into topic discussion followed by 30 minutes of open Q&A.

Space is limited to 50 registrants. All participants will receive a copy of the event recording. Sign up today[3] and start breaking down the silos and embrace DevOps for IT success.
