Dave Snowden, CTO, Cognitive Edge
Before you place a bet in a horse race you check out the ground conditions. Some horses run better on heavy, wet soil others on the dry. The various method and ideology wars in the whole Agile movement is inhibiting innovation, preventing progress. Agile is increasingly starting to look like a highly structured commodity to the detriment of the original values. In this presentation Snowden will look at how to frame a mixed methods approach and radically reduce risk. Getting methods and tools defined at the right level, defining transaction protocols, looking at unarticulated needs and turning the involvement of testing to a much earlier stage in the development cycle all change the dynamics of delivering value for Agile and DevOps alike.
Peter Eeles, Worldwide Lead for DevOps Adoption, IBM
IBM has conducted over 200 in-depth DevOps workshops with clients to understand their DevOps challenges and subsequent resolutions. What did these organizations do to improve, what benefits did they realize and how do you compare? This session presents an analysis of workshop results with a view to helping you fine-tune your own DevOps transformation.
Tony Grout, Transformation Futurist, Atlassian
l will describe what are the characteristics of high performing teams based on the hundreds of teams I and other Atlassians have observed and work in over the last 15 years. I’ll then describe how context impacts that performance and what the future of teams looks like in the new world we are in.
Christoph Hartmann, Lead Engineer, Chef
Quite often, compliance is perceived as a regulatory burden that makes all of our lives more difficult. Continuous measurement and reporting is becoming more and more complex in a dynamically changing infrastructure.
This talk will demonstrate how we can tackle compliance requirements in cloud environments and how those results can be used to improve your organisation in your day-to-day operations.
Dave van Herpen, Principal Consultant High-Performance Transformation, Quint Wellington Redwood
DevOps is all about culture. True high-performance delivery entails collaboration, systems thinking, feedback loops & continuous experimentation. But the key to high-performance lies in the ability to effectively change the behaviours of all people involved. This goes a lot further than just acknowledging that DevOps is all about culture. This interactive talk provides real-life examples and practical insights into applying behavioural instruments to support true change towards DevOps behaviours.
Mark Smalley, IT Management Consultant, Smalley
A fast-moving, entertaining and insightful session in which you’ll learn about:
♦ 'Selling' the value of DevOps to business executives
♦ Discovering the weakest link in the business-IT-business value chain
♦ Identifying effective collaborative behaviour between business and IT
♦ An ancient DevOps proverb “If you meet DevOps on the road, kill it”
Arnab Sinha, Continuous Delivery Expert, Tata Consultancy Services
ChatOps not only enables better communication, collaboration within DevOps teams but also offers an opportunity to implement LEAN processes and services. Eager to know more on WHY, HOW & Caveats?
ChatOps not only enables better communication, collaboration within DevOps teams but also offers an opportunity to implement LEAN processes and services. An enterprise, in DevOps, its quintessential to maintain, good segregation of duties with auditability, create services for IT maintenance and furnish them as a plethora of services developed & rolled out collaboratively by Dev & Ops. Why we did it, because we thought of introducing a bot amongst the DevOps team to help in performing some maintenance activities, talk to us about issues, suggest solutions, make ITSM processes LEAN but adhere to enterprise standards and guidelines. Interested to know: How are code commits, builds etc keeping Dev informed using Jenkins? How we created playbooks in Ansible & exposed them as services with auditability using Ansible Tower? Integrated with other enterprise tooling? How is Ops being appraised of production? How does Dev & Ops work as DevOps via this medium?

Crucial part of any business is constantly trying to stay relevant for the customers and provide better services that competitors. It’s important to not only generate ideas on how to achieve that, but also to test and validate those ideas. DevOps mindset is indispensable to achieve good business results with software development. But how exactly?
Tony Grout, Head of Agile Transformation, Lloyds Banking Group
In a world where your app is your biggest channel you’d better work out what you are as a business! In this talk Tony shares his experience of how thinking differently about your business helps position DevOps at the top table.
Chris Flink, Co-founder, Nolost Capital
There is a lot to do when you want to change the way Devs and Ops are working together. Since both teams are technology focussed it is common to start with implementing tools and optimizing infrastructure but the most important aspect of DevOps, the culture, should receive at least the same amount of attention. This talk will elaborate on the important aspects of a DevOps culture and provide insights on how to transform the current organisational culture while respecting the current core values.
By blending my Organisational Behaviour, Psychology and Computer Science knowledge and experience I will give practical examples on how to change people and organisations and achieve a true DevOps culture.
Jan Swaelens, Sofico
DevOps is necessary to be competitive. IT organizations should know that they have to adopt continuous and collaborative IT delivery models to meet the market demands for more features, faster and more qualitative than ever. DevOps aligns business requirements with IT performance. Due to adopting DevOps practices organizations get a significant competitive advantage over their peers. How to shift to DevOps culture to drive better software quality? Follow the journey of Sofico and find out how test automation helped them to reach the next level.

Today still security is often forgotten when people talk about DevOps, yet it was included in there from early in the movement, this talk will guide you over DevOps in security, or security in DevOps and how DevOps will help you with all things auditing, security testing and embracing a more secure way of working.

Dan North, Dan North Associates
How do DBAs fit into the world of DevOps? We usually think of DevOps as a collaboration between developers and operations or support engineers so it’s easy to forget the database admins who occupy both the development and operations space.
Organisationally they are often separate, sometimes geographically as well as organisationally. How does the database fit into the DevOps or Continuous Delivery story, both technologically and culturally?
Dan North has been helping a number of large organisations at various stages on their journey to continuous delivery and in every case their legacy database dependencies are a major stumbling block. Where do you start unpicking the database? How can you tell if it is working? Is the Matrix just a very big Oracle instance?
Liz Rice, CEO, FORCE12.io
There’s a lot of talk about Docker and containerization – but who are the main characters in the battle for supremacy in the data centre? What are their capabilities and characteristics? We’ve been exploring microscaling on different platforms, schedulers and orchestration systems and we’re back to tell you all about it.
Jon Topper, The Scale Factory
How much time do we waste when our delivery value chain is entirely driven by sending and receiving emails? What if you could improve how your team communicates, and improve efficiency at the same time? I'll share how some high-performing organisations are making use of ChatOps to improve team collaboration.
