How has DevOps helped your company


Even if tools from the field of continuous delivery are used, there are often still high hurdles to establish a well-functioning delivery process from the idea to the end user.

DevOps is not a closed framework or process model that only needs to be "applied", but transfers and combines ideas, principles and practices from the areas of Lean Production, Agile, Agile Infrastructure and Continuous Delivery, among others. DevOps has already helped many companies to set up "High Performance IT Organizations" in highly complex environments and at the same time to achieve very high quality and very short response times.

This 3-day seminar teaches in which situations DevOps is helpful and which problem it can address. In addition to the central DevOps principles and practices, the interactions between organization, technology and architecture are presented. Important tools are learned practically, sometimes in a playful way. The discussion of typical problems and obstacles as well as possible approaches when changing to a DevOps organization ensure the transfer of the topics into the practice of the seminar participants.
