Regis PMI South January 2022 Roundtable (Virtual) - The Current State of DevOps

Topic. The Current State of DevOps

Synopsis of Session. DevOps has become a hot topic in IT circles. It is a culture and set of processes that bring development and operations teams together to complete software development.  It allows organizations to create and improve products at a faster pace than they can with traditional software development approaches. Adoption has been accelerating each year as companies realize the need to deliver systems faster and be more responsive to changing markets. The presentation provides many resources for follow up and discussion.

Objectives: This session will:

  • Introduce PMs to the core DevOps principles,
  • Review industry adoption and struggles,
  • Discuss trends, and
  • Discuss in demand DevOps skills.
