A data-driven blueprint for accelerating DevOps and agile practices

Watch recording from February 27, 2019

DevOps practices deliver speed and reliability improvements for sustainable competitive advantages. Foundational DevOps practices include the use of agile development, continuous integration/continuous delivery (CI/CD), and cloud platforms that increase the automation and security of software delivery practices to deliver business outcomes.

In December 2017, IDC conducted a global study commissioned by Red Hat to assess strategies and spending related to enterprise DevOps, the use of containers and container orchestration products such as Kubernetes, and related topics such as continuous integration and agile software development.

In this webinar, we’ll examine the study and discuss topics such as: 

  • How DevOps practices help improve speed and reliability to deliver sustainable competitive advantages.
  • Pressures that IT infrastructure and operations teams face to meet the increasing speed of application development and deployment from DevOps teams.
  • The role DevOps plays in increasing the security of applications.
  • Frequency of agile development practices used for workloads today.
