Accelerating CI/CD with PaaS and containers – DevOps Enterprise session

Accelerating CI/CD with PaaS and containers – DevOps Enterprise session

Andrew Block of Red Hat will be speaking on this topic at DevOps Enterprise on 21 October – below is a primer from him on what he’ll cover:

Although the DevOps movement clearly and correctly centers around culture and the processes that guide or derail our success, the root of this shift often gets overlooked in favor of the symptoms.

It’s not only because the previous way of doing things isn’t completely effective, it’s an entirely different value proposition that’s required. As IT is increasingly expected to do more with less and deliver better services quicker, DevOps addresses a need to more clearly demonstrate practical wins and measurable achievements.
