The Good, the Bad and the Ugly of DevOps, Q1 2015
Amy DeMartine, senior analyst at Forrester
9 a.m. – 10 a.m. GMT
DevOps is one of the hottest buzzwords in IT at the moment. But Forrester finds that the issue with DevOps is that there is no real clarity about what it is and the benefits it brings. In 2015, Forrester wants to change that by making DevOps real to all enterprises via its modern service delivery research. In this session, DeMartine will outline what modern service delivery means and will explore the current state of adoption, based on a survey Forrester ran in late 2014, so that attendees can prepare their IT operations teams correctly.
