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? If so, does that mean we are just developing software not a working system ? Are we just working in Silos ? DevOps aims at breaking the Silos and bringing in a culture of everyone “getting along”. 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.

What is Agile? Why do I care? How is it relevant to me? These common questions reflect the state of confusion and ambiguity that surrounds the concept of agility. This webinar will attempt to resolve these questions by cutting through the ambiguity with practical, relevant insights into agility and its application to project teams - including teams not using iterative techniques in the design and scheduling of their projects. Real world examples of application in linear, task-driven projects in complex, regulated environments will provide a context for how agility can be applied even when your team isn't an "Agile team".
