This morning we had our fifth in a series of special episodes of our Continuous Discussions (#c9d9) podcast around DevOps Enterprise Summit (DOES16) - starting this Monday, in San Francisco! This time, we heard from HPE , Urban Science , Bluware and Stratus Solutions about their experiences implementing DevOps at scale in large enterprises. Our speakers shared best practices and tips that they've identified through their journey adopting DevOps at such complex, heavily regulated organizations - from aerospace and government agencies , Big Data organizations, oil and gas companies, and software/hardware manufacturers . They also gave us a preview of what they'll be speaking on at the event.
