Sakai DevOps Nerdvana: Doing More with Less

A session at Open Apereo 2013 Conference (Jasig & Sakai)

Thursday 6th June, 2013

9:45am to 10:30am (PST)

DevOps is a response to the optimizations that Agile development, web-based applications and Cloud computing have created. Organizations must now consider how DevOps strategies support the entire application change cycle. DevOps enables rapid, open collaboration between all application stakeholders including Dev, QA, Operations, application owners - even end users. The DevOps Cycle enables enterprises to become truly agile across all the functions supporting web-based applications.

Learning Outcomes

  • How Agile relates to DevOps and the larger DevOps Cycle
  • How Development and Operations can collaborate to become more agile
  • Integrating Dev change management with IT change management
  • How automation supports but does not drive DevOps strategies
