DevOps Technology in Isolation is Pointless

“We are closer to stalling every day. We thought we were well on the way to elite DevOps performance and then we realized that culture and compliance can stop the dream dead on the tracks.

We can deploy quickly to our staging environments and then the compliance kicks in.

This talk will discuss how Controlant’s Governance Engineering project was started, how the FDA regulation guidelines are the design, the pains of manual validation and give an overview of our plans for the future.”

Speakers:
Jaimie Fryer - QA Engineering Manager
Heiðar Eldberg Eiríksson - DevOps Engineering Manager

This includes not only the value toward completion of high priority business transformation projects but the overall organizational health by growing the talent within the organization. She will provide the next update in their data center transformation.

As IT capabilities increase, we deal with ever faster-moving changes in an environment with more independent teams and several technology stacks - how do we keep this under control?

Platform engineering is an emerging answer that brings systematic governance without increasing the amount of red tape. The structure of the talk is as follows (using 3 different case studies that I have been part of ): The changes in IT landscape, a working definition and reference architecture for platform engineering, the specific experiences with implementing it in 3 different organisations.
