Keynote: Engineering the Digital Transformation
Gary Gruver, President, Gruver Consulting

“Engineering the Digital Transformation” provides systematic approaches for improving how software is developed for a broad range of applications. It is an introduction to Gary Gruver’s latest book. Unlike most books in the industry, which concentrate on providing a variety of different practices that work for software, this book will focus on high-level principles for engineering improvements. These principles are based on what has been proven to work well in manufacturing but will be modified to address software’s unique characteristics and capabilities.

Keynote: DevOps GOLD: A Model for Enterprise DevOps Adoption – JP Morgenthal, CTO, DXC

Keynote: DevOps GOLD: A Model for Enterprise DevOps Adoption
JP Morgenthal, CTO, DXC

Businesses are having difficulty adopting and scaling DevOps because it’s a multi-layered, human-centric, technology-enabled endeavor that is instead approached through a singular-layer, technology-centric lens. Moreover, the layers are not clearly defined in a way that enables businesses to design an effective strategy given their current skill makeup and organization configuration.

DevOps GOLD provides a systematic framework for thinking through the various drivers of successful DevOps implementations. It recognizes DevOps adoption is comprised of multiple layers containing tasks/outcomes that can happen in serial or parallel. GOLD also recognizes DevOps adoption must be considered through multiple lenses within the organization, each with its own incentives for success.

Over the years, the IT landscape has evolved considerably impacting the way businesses run and deliver services. Today, the evolution continues, and new practices such as DevOps are a crucial component of the digital transformation process.

In this session, we will discuss real-life use cases from the trenches that showcase what to do and what to avoid when adopting DevOps process. We will provide examples from our customers that demonstrate how using the right methodologies, culture shifts and tools could positively impact your business while fostering collaboration and innovation.

Chris Miller, Principal Security Program Manager, Veracode

Is security at odds with your DevOps methodology? Does ‘skipping’ security in your development cycle introduce unacceptable risk for the business? Fear not. Join Chris Miller, principal security program manager at Veracode, to discuss tactics you can employ to seamlessly integrate application security into your DevOps practice to transform it into an effective and efficient DevSecOps practice.

Defining the DevOps Landscape – Tracy Ragan, CEO, DeployHub

Defining the DevOps Landscape
Tracy Ragan, CEO, DeployHub

DevOps was born from continuous integration (CI).  From CI we evolved to continuous delivery (CD) which has been a driving force in the DevOps market. CD has created a landscape of tools that automate all pieces of the DevOps process from builds to deploy and everything in between. This session will help define the different players in the CD landscape and where they fit in the overall DevOps market.

The Challenges of Scaling DevSecOps – Shiri Ivtsan, Senior Product Manager, WhiteSource

The Challenges of Scaling DevSecOps
Shiri Ivtsan, Senior Product Manager, WhiteSource

Organizations enjoy the speed DevOps brings to development and delivery. However, most security and compliance monitoring tools have not been able to keep up, becoming the most significant barrier to continuous delivery. Now some good news: You can easily integrate security into your existing processes to solve this challenge. In this session, Shiri Ivtsan, senior product manager at WhiteSource, will discuss:

  • Leveraging the DevSecOps approach to help speed up security
  • Scaling security into your agile processes
  • Five easy ways to start driving DevSecOps in your organization
Infrastructure as Code - Yes, It Applies to Z/OS As Well! – Rosalind Radcliffe, Distinguished Engineer, Chief Architect for DevOps for Enterprise Systems, IBM

Infrastructure as Code – Yes, It Applies to Z/OS As Well!
Rosalind Radcliffe, Distinguished Engineer, Chief Architect for DevOps for Enterprise Systems, IBM

Your organization is successfully transforming to DevOps but part of the environment seems to be slowing everything down. The back end mainframe systems continue to take longer to change, and have limited ability to innovate and experiment. What if you could use the same practices and even many of the same open source tools to apply the same dynamic environment practices to the mainframe?

This session will show how it is possible to use the same open source tools to build a pipeline for z/OS including dynamic provisioning of resources, isolated testing environments and production deployment.

Infrastructure as Code is a method to provision and manage IT infrastructure through the use of code, rather than through standard operating procedures and manual processes. Done correctly, it can help avoid cloud deployment inconsistencies, increase developer productivity and lower costs. Join us to see infrastructure as code practices applied to the mainframe environment and learn how the transformation is automated for speed and consistency.

How to ‘Shift-left’ Security and Automate Container Security Into Your CI/CD Pipeline – Fei Huang, CEO and Co-Founder, NeuVector

How to ‘Shift-left’ Security and Automate Container Security Into Your CI/CD Pipeline
Fei Huang, CEO and Co-Founder, NeuVector

DevOps teams are being asked to integrate security into the pipeline, to ‘shift-left’ security. This is critical because as more container-based applications move down the CI/CD pipeline into production, the risk of damaging attacks and data breaches increases. Join NeuVector in this session to explore the attack surface in a pipeline and to learn how to integrate and automate container security, from Vulnerability Management to Run-Time Protection.

Session - Lessons Learned in 9 Years! – Stefan Zier, Chief Architect, Sumo Logic

In this session, Stefan will share lessons learned from nearly a decade of building and scaling the company’s cloud native service.

Keep Ops and Dev on The Same Page with AIOpsKeep Ops and Dev on The Same Page with AIOps – Peter Luff, Sr. Director and John Willsey, Principal Solutions Architect, ScienceLogic

Keep Ops and Dev on The Same Page with AIOpsKeep Ops and Dev on The Same Page with AIOps
Peter Luff, Sr. Director, Partner Marketing, ScienceLogic
John Willsey, Principal Solutions Architect, ScienceLogic

DevOps teams can sometimes get separated as development effort runs ahead of the ability of operations to keep pace. The new AIOps movement offers great promise for keeping both on the same page by giving developers and operations teams the tools to quickly identify where applications can be tripped by infrastructure issues. We will identify and demonstrate a set of use cases to illustrate how both can work together to improve application availability and reduce outage risks.

How to leverage Config as Code and GitOps with Feature Flags – Erez Rusovsky, Director of Product Management, CloudBees

How to leverage Config as Code and GitOps with Feature Flags
Erez Rusovsky, Director of Product Management, CloudBees

Are feature flags an integrated part of your change management practice? Or are they rogue changes in the production environment that have you crossing your fingers and your operations and security counterparts wincing? In this session you’ll learn how to de-risk your production deployments with the use of feature flags by adding the power of configuration-as-code and GitOps.

  • Understand the value of an enterprise feature flag management solution\
  • Maintain the same accountability, governance and traceability as the rest of the code in the change management process
  • Integrate with the SCM and automatically update your Github repo when your feature flags change
  • Use GitOps to roll back feature changes, clone feature configuration between environments and coordinate with existing change management approval processes
How to Defend an Application with Accuracy – Erik Costlow, Developer Relations, Contrast Security

How to Defend an Application with Accuracy
Erik Costlow, Developer Relations, Contrast Security

The most effective way to defend an application is to focus on what it actually does. For example if an application doesn’t use SQL, it won’t be vulnerable to SQL Injection. Tools such as the free Contrast Community Edition enable teams to watch running code and observe what this code actually does, focusing time and effort on the things that matter. In addition to accuracy, this improves performance because the defenders have contextual information that can be used for defense. In essence this moves defense up from Layer 7, watching data over the network, into a more modern Layer 8 of how the application actually uses the data.
