KPMG and CIONET Luxembourg are pleased to invite you to an event on 24th March 2016 about “DevOps & Cloud : The game changers”.
Born of the need to improve IT service delivery agility, the DevOps movement emphasises communication, collaboration, and integration between software developers and IT operations. Rather than seeing these two groups as silos who pass things along but don’t really work together, DevOps recognises the interdependence of software development and IT operations and helps organisations produce software and IT services more rapidly, with frequent iterations.
The cloud, public or private, is a direct response to the need for agility. Initially, people saw cloud computing primarily as a way to save money and transfer CapEx to OpEx. They’ve since come to realise that its real value lies in reducing waste that impedes speed and defocuses effort. Very few companies would identify data centre operations as part of their core value proposition. Cloud services let IT departments shift their focus away from commodity work such as provisioning hardware or patching operating systems, and spend it instead on adding business-specific value.
Cloud computing, agile development, and DevOps are interlocking parts of a strategy for transforming IT into a business adaptability enabler. If the cloud is an instrument, then DevOps is the musician that plays it. Together, they help IT shift its emphasis from asking questions like “how long can we go without an outage?” to “how often can we deliver new functionalities?” or “how quickly can we deploy a new service?”
Made in heaven, the match of cloud computing and DevOps is the bearer of big changes.
