ITIL and DevOps: Friend or Foe?

itil-and-devops

ITIL, formerly an acronym for Information Technology Infrastructure Library, is a set of practices for IT service management (ITSM) that focuses on aligning IT services with the needs of business.

ITIL has been around for a long time, and has helped large teams (particularly those that are heavily regulated) manage the way services are delivered in a predictable and consistent way, as a way to mitigate risk. DevOps, as we know, has a very similar goal.

What is the relationship between DevOps and ITIL? What can one learn from the other? is it ITIL vs. DevOps, or ITIL and DevOps? Can they co-exist?

On the next episode of #c9d9 we’re discussing ITIL and DevOps:

  • What are the similarities and the differences between DevOps and ITIL?
  • Do they complement each other, or are they at odds?
  • How can teams who already subscribe to an ITIL-way of working adopt DevOps practices, and where should they focus their efforts?
  • How you can foster DevOps practices in large, ITIL-based organizations?

Join us on March 8 at 10am PST to learn more from these speakers:
