Patrick Debois – DevOps Enthusiast

Debois is an independent IT consultant, blogger and DevOps enthusiast who helps bridge the gap between development projects and IT operations by using Agile techniques in development, project management and system administration. He first presented concepts on Agile Infrastructure at the Agile2008 conference, and in 2009, he organized the first DevOps Days. Since then, he has been promoting the notion of ‘DevOps’ to exchange ideas and promote how development and operations groups can better collaborate to achieve improved results in business.

WHAT:“Renovating App Delivery-DevOps Successes and Pitfalls”

DevOps is grounded in the belief that IT operations and IT development (engineering and QA) can truly work as one IT resource to drive business agility. DevOps enables cross-functional IT teams to deliver projects faster and make service adjustments more frequently, at improved quality and reduced cost. This webinar is designed for enterprise architects, IT development, IT operations and change management personnel interested in enhancing their collaborative landscape.

Peissner and Debois will draw on their firsthand experience and extensive knowledge of market trends to highlight the top five adoption advantages of this fast-growth emerging market that IT operations rarely consider. The presenters will outline DevOps adoption pitfalls, and how to avoid them. They also will leverage the successes of early innovators to illustrate the benefits of strategic DevOps implementations.
