DevOps From a Different Dataset: What 30M Workflows Reveal About High Performing Teams

Add to calendar
Wednesday, November 11, 2020 - 11:45am to 12:45pm

What can we learn about DevOps best practices by looking at data from a SaaS with 800k dev users, 30K orgs and 30m+ builds a month, particularly when compared with surveys where users opt-in? Takeaways include: - Teams using CI are fast: 80% of all workflows finish in less than 10 minutes, compared to teams not using CI at all.- They stay in flow: With CI 50% of all recovery happens in under an hour, and 50% of orgs recovered in 1 try.- The average team using CI achieves high-performing results: 50% of orgs start six workflows per day across all of their projects, and at the highest end...

Wednesday, November 11, 2020 - 1:15pm to 2:15pm

DevSecOps isn’t meant for just Gods and Unicorns, it is for mere mortals as well. One of the challenges we have in using Application Security practices is where to start, how to get value, i.e., be successful with initial efforts, and how to build on that success. The world is being driven more and more by network-connected applications and services that are constantly under attack from the curious and malicious. By simply adding steps to your pipeline, you can iteratively add AppSec practices to your process and dramatically increase the security of your software. Join Tom as he lays out...


Breaking Iron Triangle Thinking: A New Approach to Agile vs. Continuous Testing

Add to calendar
Wednesday, November 11, 2020 - 4:00pm to 5:00pm

An old adage in software development is: “Speed, quality, cost. Pick two.” In other words: if you want a higher quality product, you have to sacrifice speed, cost, or both. In this “iron triangle” decision-making philosophy, true improvement is not possible. But the fallacy of Iron Triangle thinking is believing that the parameters of these choices are fixed, limiting our potential for innovation. Engineering teams can break this thinking by structuring their improvement cycle not around trade-offs, but on continuous improvement. Typically, in the agile development approach, quality is...

Observability - Inside and Out

Add to calendar
Thursday, November 12, 2020 - 11:45am to 12:45pm

Observability is the gathering of information - metrics, logs, and traces - to determine the health of software systems. Of course this applies to production systems! Monitoring live services is the bread and butter of any DevOps organization. What about our internal systems - the ones that all engineering organizations require in order to ship software safely, swiftly, and securely? Can we apply observability principles to those systems? How can an organization ship code when the critical infrastructure to get bits from a developer's machine into the cloud have mysteriously vanished? When...

Three Waves of DevOps: How we scale speed and quality through AI

Add to calendar
Thursday, November 12, 2020 - 3:45pm to 4:45pm

Since 2015 we at Dynatrace experienced 3 waves of transformation bringing us from DevOps (Speed), via NoOps (Stability) to what we call AI-Supported Autonomous Cloud Enablement (Scale). While DevOps and our approach to NoOps resulted in 1h Commit to Production and a 93% reduction of end user impacting production issues we had a hard time scaling speed and keeping our quality promise as we went through a 10x growth in size of engineering over the past 5 years. We forced ourselves to leverage and enhance our deterministic AI engine by integrating it into every phase of our software...
