It’s fair to say that the coronavirus pandemic changed the way we work for good. In all of that, how did DevOps fare?
We talk all the time about ‘the new normal’ and how IT was ahead of the curve when it comes to remote working, but there is definitely more to that. Not all teams are equal, and changes happened regardless.
This session showcases real world, first-hand examples of how DevOps practices within different organisations evolved and matured, as well as which changes emerged (or didn’t) as beneficial in the new way of working.
Matteo Emili has been a Microsoft MVP since 2010. He is passionate about technology, but it is not his only interest – what really makes him tick is how technology acts as a tool to solve a complex business problem, ultimately bringing benefits to the company.
Regular speaker at conferences and meetups, he enjoys sharing back with the worldwide technical communities – especially about ALM, Agile and DevOps.
DevOps is much more than just a collection of tools – it is predominantly about cultural change. Changing culture is extremely difficult though. In this talk we will look beyond the tech industry to seek understanding as to how other industries adapted to an ever-changing world that requires fast time to market. We will hear anecdotes from the film industry, sport industry, the military, and many more. These findings will be translated into DevOps challenges we face today, and we will hear how to tackle them. After this talk, tech leaders will be equipped with some deep insights into how a successful DevOps culture looks like and how it can be created in your company.

Adopting serverless in an enterprise has challenges. These challenges increase when the enterprise has no serverless expertise within itself. We know that serverless requires a new mindset and a different way of approaching application development. When business pressure mounts to deliver solutions faster, organizations often fall into the trap of quickly building a team by pulling engineers from different sources in order to satisfy the business goals. What such quick-fix solutions fail to achieve is the basic growth of the serverless knowledge and skills of its employees. Thus, the serverless adoption challenges are left unattended.
For a company that credits its own growth on the growth of its people, these quick-fix approaches are not going to offer much help. For a long term gain and to develop a growth culture within the organization, it is important to recognize the uplift of its serverless expertise. This is where organically growing a serverless team becomes beneficial.
In this talk, taking inspiration from nature, I will take you through few important phases of growing a serverless team, and discuss how it can bring near-term as well as long-term benefits to an organization. Let’s all grow and not build a serverless team!

DevOps has transformed the way we deliver software to our customers. But for teams in regulated industries, manual change management processes still put a delay on releases. For these teams, automating change management as part of the DevOps process is the next frontier. This talk will show how and why to automate change controls and release documentation with security and traceability built in.

Leading Agile and DevOps during the past 4 years at Amdocs, a company with 27,000 employees, made me realize that in big and complex organizations relatively small issues are often not so easy to solve. I learned that sometimes in order to solve complex problems we can look for solutions in other disciplines.
I understood that behavior is not a result of managerial instructions and not driven by the nice slogans written on the company walls. The hidden behavioral instructions that lays in every organization are actually the unspoken codes that dictate how decisions will be made, how new employees will be onboarded, and how the communication will work. They determine if there will be room for innovation and continuous improvements or not.
How can we treat hidden DNA code that lays in the behavior of every individual in the organization? That is how I came up with applying genetic engineering concepts to the organization DNA in order to change behavioral codes and by that change the entire company.

We need a strategy to embrace, evolve and innovate product practices through collective engagement. This talk proposes an enterprise-level gamification strategy and eventually highlights the convergence of gamification and machine learning to build next-generation products. The enterprise-level strategy for gamification lays the foundations to:
– Introduce a culture of experimentation
– Measure innovation by integration of scores
– Engage end-user in gamification, mock-up, etc.
– Introduce researchers in the process
– Creating open-source projects
– Map the road to organized innovation
First step in this journey to understanding „gamification“:
– Integration of game elements like point systems, leaderboards, badges, or other elements to build collective thinking on complex problems of future.
The second step is to identify critical business questions for future & next-generation product portfolios:
– Non-linear products & features
– New security threats
– New data sources & data protection
– Optimal level of agility
– People-driven compliance
– Hyper automation
The third step is to onboard to a gamification strategy to answer critical business questions about the future:
– Shortest lead time (How fast)
– Smallest number of errors
– Hyper automation challenges for complex tasks
– Ranking based “toil” removal
– Loyalty points where customer redeem points
