DevOps Means Business - Gene Kim, IT Revolution Press & Nicole Forsgren Velasquez, Utah State University

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Presenter: Gene Kim
Co-Presenter: Nicole Forsgren Velasquez

In this session, we'll present the top predictors of business performance (spoiler alert: IT performance makes a difference!). Then we'll dive into behaviors that are proven to increase IT performance—such as continuous automated integration and testing—and those that had surprisingly little or no impact. This will help you assess the validity of tools and processes as you refine your DevOps practices.
