Session Description

As the creator of Jenkins, Kohsuke Kawaguchi sees lots of real-world software development, and teams and organizations trying to push better DevOps practice forward. In those conversations, he noticed that some teams are more successful than others. This session will explore where those differences seem to be made.

One key difference is around data. Automation in software development produces lots of data, but by and large most of that data is simply thrown away. Yet at the same time, management often feels as though they are flying blind because they have little insight! Another difference is around how organizations leverage “economy of scale.” Successful teams manage to drive great uniformity and consistency across software development, which allow organizations to move at a faster speed and make developers feel great. Join this session to learn more about what differentiates a winning DevOps team from a failing one.
