Continuous Delivery & DevOps

9th March 2018

To build a great business, one needs to consistently delight customers. To deliver high-value products/services in a sustainable/predictable manner, we need to invest in software craftsmanship culture, backed by solid engineering practices and automation tools for building, testing, deploying, and monitoring. Software organisations that practice Continuous Delivery and DevOps have had a massive impact on their business and customer satisfaction.

With the introduction of Cloud, it has become easier for companies to embrace Continuous Delivery (CD) & DevOps. With Cloud, the team can leverage the speed, agility, efficiency, and economies of scale, which are essential building blocks for CD & DevOps.

With CD & DevOps, teams are able to roll out experiments frequently to validate their hypothesis and hence innovate at a very high speed. As more and more organisations embrace distributed and remote-first teams, Cloud infrastructure can help them set-up their entire continuous delivery pipeline and promote the code to production faster.

Agile India’s Continuous Delivery and DevOps Day will expose you to industry-proven techniques to help your organisation with predictable delivery, data-driven experimentation culture and more importantly help build an organisation that learns continuously, at a fast pace.

Hosted By Red Hat
