The Data on DevOps - Making the Case for Awesome

What’s the value proposition of DevOps? Does culture change show up in the bottom line? What practices predict high IT performance? We hear many stories to inspire and inform us, but the plural of anecdote is not data. Let’s dive into the research and find out which DevOps practices drive optimal IT and business outcomes. The data shows that the best IT performers have the highest throughput and reliability while contributing to organizational profitability, productivity, and market share goals. Industry trends around security, containers, continuous delivery, and lean management relate to IT performance and quality: let’s talk about how. Management and practitioners alike will leave with a better understanding of how to achieve the best outcomes, while armed with the data they need to make the case for change.

Chief Engineer at ING

Enabling agility at scale for the heavily regulated

ING reorganized IT five times to increase agility and speed. After going agile / scrum for application development 6 years ago ING restructured the IT department in 180 agile DevOps teams. Then ING integrated the commercial colleagues in > 400 self-organizing squads (BizDevOps) inspired by Spotify’s organizational model. Two years ago ING radically changed the people approach for software engineers to enable and reward engineering mastery. Last year ING restructured the infrastructure department empowering the engineers more. The last step is to implement an engineer centric control framework and fine-tune deployment pipelines to remove IT Risk related manual work and wait times. ING is convinced that in order to go fast, engineers need to be in control. Full stack. Such changes require a lot of learning from everybody involved.

Perfect Software - the enemy of Continuous Delivery

At the Guardian we deploy our software several hundred times a day. But working at this pace has meant changing our development practices. Engineering teams have adapted - working with Continuous Delivery and CI pipelines and product too are used to thinking about MVP to speed up time to market. But what about the other aspects of our software delivery teams and how they work? I’ll argue that the best way to move towards rapid delivery is to reject the notion of perfection and work in radically new ways. I’ll look at case studies with testing/QA, UX and data teams and show how all those teams have decided that perfection at the point of delivery is outdated and old fashioned, and we should be instead learn to live with a bit of imperfection. I’ll look instead at the sometimes controversial methods we use to allow us to move as fast as our engineering teams.
