This past November at CA World 2015, we participated in a panel discussion on transforming application development and release with Continuous Delivery and DevOps practices. The panel included:
Tim Mueting: CA’s Release Automation solutions
Derek E. Weeks: Sonatype’s Nexus Software Supply Chain Automation Solutions
Brian Dawson: CloudBee’s Jenkins continuous delivery solutions
Jason English: SkyTap’s on-demand solutions for modern DevOps environments
The well-attended panel discussion addressed many practical and easy ways for companies to get started with Continuous Delivery and DevOps. The four panelist shared many real-world scenarios and conversations with IT Operations and Development leaders about engaging organizations, improving collaboration, and measuring results. Panelists also discussed how to overcome the hurdles of getting started with these new practices, how to incentivize more people to participate, and how empathy can break down silos that sometimes impede progress.
