Recently had the pleasure of attending the DevOps Enterprise Summit (#DOES15) in San Francisco where I was able to spend three days surrounded by people thinking about, talking about, and most importantly figuring out DevOps in the enterprise. What was abundantly clear is that DevOps is not just for the unicorns, aka. Web companies, as evidenced by keynotes from Target, HP, GE, and CapitalOne. In fact, what resonated with me and other attendees is that the principals and practices of DevOps can be employed in any environment with any technology stack to improve quality, accelerate deployments, and shift organizational culture. And yes, that even includes the mainframe.
Below is short list of key takeaways from the conference that will shape how we work with our customers, providing you with a more valuable IT transformation experience.
