The Road to DevOps Shangri-La: Scaling Continuous Delivery from Teams to the Enterprise
It’s not uncommon for an enterprise organization to have hundreds to thousands of business-critical software-based services and applications. And with these organizations coming under increased pressure to deliver new software faster all the time, improving release velocity while maintaining quality is pivotal to success.Simply put, enterprises cannot afford the unpredictable, lengthy, and inefficient processes that often come with traditional, siloed software releases. Yet so many of these organizations still support just as many individual software delivery pipelines as they do applications. Developing pipelines independently makes it nearly impossible to scale processes across a large environment without extensive scripting or adding tools and staff, and even that will take you only so far. Any efficiency gains made by one team will remain with that one team. And in many cases, that team won’t even be able to replicate those gains in their future application releases. To accelerate release velocity at scale, independent product teams need to work together, leveraging a series of supported pipelines across the entire lifecycle. Doing so requires a set of standard templates that product teams can leverage and configure. By standardizing on their processes, all participants can compare the effectiveness of different pipelines, understand the end-to-end lifecycle, and benefit from continuous feedback.
In this live webinar, DevOps expert Gene Kim and XebiaLabs CPO Rob Stroud will discuss how enterprises can scale release pipelines without having to increase resources.
