DevOps is poised to play a strategic role in IT modernization efforts across government.

More than just a methodology for developing applications, DevOps provides a means of better aligning an agency’s development efforts with its most key priorities.

It comes down to agility. Agencies are under pressure to replace outdated legacy systems with a new generation of IT services. Traditional approaches to application development take too long and often miss the mark, delivering systems that fail to meet requirements for either performance or functionality.

By integrating an organization’s development and operation teams, and by incorporating a new generation of tools and automation, agencies are able to create a more iterative and dynamic development process—one that can adapt more easily to evolving mission requirements.

But DevOps also represents a big change, one that touches on nearly every aspect of an agency’s IT operations, from top leadership and IT managers to development and security teams. This event will provide insight into how agencies can implement DevOps smoothly and effectively.

Potential topics to be discussed include:

  • Applying DevOps to legacy systems
  • Key opportunities for automation
  • Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery (CI/CD) tools and practices
  • Integrating DevOps and SecOps
  • Strategies for managing design complexity
  • DevOps and lifecycle management
  • DevOps and microservices
