Closing the Agile Loop of Continuous Delivery

PREMIUM on-demand webinar

Do you often find that when something fails in production, the response of a development team member is, “It works on my machine or at our end, you must be having the wrong version“? Vice Versa on the other side of the table – do you find that the operations team always feels that the developers are not sensitive to the operational requirements and constraints?

Presenter Priya Patra disucsses how and why DevOps is the force behind the evolution where the development team and operations works together with business sponsors and quality assurance (QA) to deliver software that can be released to production at any point of time.
