Information Systems 2015: The Project Manager's Role in DevOps & the SDLC
by Alan Zeichick
Software development is changing – the project manager’s role in software projects is changing too. DevOps, or developer operations, integrates developers with testers and with traditional IT staff, which completely changes the culture and priorities of the team. This session will talk about the changes to the SDLC (software development lifecycle) landscape, covering DevOps, agile methodologies and other emerging trends, and offer practical suggestions as to how project managers can thrive and add new value to today’s software projects — and maybe even be hailed as a hero.
