In a world where agility has become a requirement, business and engineering demands have decreed the death of the “Department of No”. This talk will cover the journey of an IT Operations department from a single DevOps team to a business-wide cultural shift that has affected the way people interact and work with each other.

In order to make sure that our DevOps initiative would be successful, we needed to make changes to the corporate organization, rearrange teams and roles in several areas, and make sure that everyone fully understand where we were being headed to.

All these steps will be covered in this talk that will demonstrate some common pitfalls and misconceptions that jeopardize the DevOps adoption, particularly in large enterprises with several compliancy requirements and some outdated bureaucracy.

Topics that will be covered include:

  • The quest for an actionable definition of DevOps
  • How to begin?
  • Organizational changes and new roles
  • Some common pitfalls that jeopardize DevOps adoption
  • Impacts on InfoSec and Compliancy
