Leading a DevOps Transformation

Tuesday, August 21, 2018 - 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM PDT

Implementing DevOps is more than just implementing tools. It requires thinking — and acting — differently about everything from budgeting and program management to architecture, security and compliance.

In this webinar, Jez Humble and Nicole Forsgren, will discuss what DevOps is and, just as importantly, what it isn’t from a leadership perspective, and how to start and succeed on the journey to helping your organization achieve higher levels of performance. They will also present research on what makes effective transformational leaders and the impact of effective leadership on successful transformation programs.

David Meltzer, CTO of Tripwire, will join as host to discuss the influence DevOps is having on security organizations, and how they are adapting to the changing environment — in people, process, and technology. He will discuss why the security team understanding and integrating to the CI/CD pipeline is critical to success for both DevOps teams and security.
