What you'll learn

  • Learn how Capital One and other companies collaborated on Hygieia


The open source landscape is shifting. Large, traditional enterprises are coming together to jointly create solutions for their problems. The Hygieia open source project was launched by Capital One at OSCON 2015. Since then, large enterprises have adopted and adapted Hygieia. In 2017, Capital One, Walmart, and Verizon began a journey to make Hygieia drive DevOps success via metrics and measurements.

Tapabrata Pal, Grant Wade, and Roger Servey explain how collaboration between Capital One, Walmart, and Verizon has enabled better management of their respective DevOps pipelines. Along the way, Tapabrata and Grant offer a brief introduction to Hygieia, detail its usage at each of these enterprises, and share plans for the future.

This session is sponsored by Capital One.
