What began as a cultural shift in 2009 to bring developers and operations together has undoubtedly become the most important aspect of modern software development lifecycle. From startups to big enterprises, DevOps is now an integral part of project planning and delivery and an enterprise capability that includes stakeholders, business owners, architecture, design, development, quality assurance, operations, security, partners and suppliers.
Adopting DevOps is not as straightforward as purchasing the right set of software tools. From source code management to monitoring, there is a myriad of vendors with tools that are available to customers. A company will need to choose the right combination but also integrate them to achieve the desired outcome.
To address the complexity and challenges of implementing DevOps, companies have enlisted and sourced talented professionals but even then they often face challenges. The Fintech:CODE and Retail:CODE events on March 16-17 in London will bring together expert practitioners and thought leaders to provide information on the implementation and help you develop your business case and build towards getting significant return on investment.
Some of the brands joining on the retail side are IKEA, Target, Walgreens Boots, Marks and Spencer and Argos and on the fintech side are Bank of America, Barclays, BNP Paribas, Capital One, ING. The events provide 2,5 days of knowledge exchange and networking plus case studies from leading speakers to shape the future of the DevOps and IT world.
