Further Details

‘Cloud’ changes the way we must design, deliver, and operate our software systems. DevOps is a set of practices that has a arisen from the need for Software Development and IT Operations teams to collaborate more closely in order to deliver and operate modern software systems effectively at high rates of change.

DevOps requires significant evolution of both technologies and teams in order to be successful; the Effective DevOps seminar provides a solid grounding in the organisational and technological changes that leaders are required to make for a successful DevOps adoption.
