Virtual Panel
11:00-12:30PM EST
This virtual panel discussion will focus on the evolution of DevOps & Agile software development.


Agenda | Location

The move to DevOps and Agile software development processes is over a decade old, and companies have reaped much-publicized real-world benefits from the transition.

However, there have also been some less-publicized disasters.

Companies have moved so quickly that they’ve inadvertently opened up gaping cybersecurity vulnerabilities, or failed to maintain control over the challenges posed by complexity, geographic sprawl, or lack of global knowledge.

This panel session includes seasoned veterans of the DevOps world, both users and technology providers. We’ll discuss:

  • Technology evolution and futures. Which DevOps tools and technologies have become obsolete? Which are emerging? And how should practitioners choose among them?
  • Cybersecurity best practices and DevSecOps. How do we keep initiatives both agile and secure?
  • DevOps, the cloud, and enterprise infrastructure. Most organizations have moved to cloud-first DevOps development. But how does that affect enterprise infrastructure? What should practitioners think about when it comes to infrastructure for DevOps, including networking, computational, and storage resources?
  • Best practices and lessons learned. What does our team of experts wish they’d known when they started? What best practices do they recommend our WSTA peers follow as they proceed along the DevOps journey?
