Techerati previews the DevOps Live Virtual: Enterprise Evolution panel discussions

The adoption and scaling of a DevOps approach for large scale, complex IT setups gives rise to many challenges and debates. In this two-day forum, The DevOps Live Virtual: Enterprise Evolution panels, on 16th & 17th June, bring together a knowledge-rich line-up of industry experts to take stock of the most pressing themes for developers today.

The esteemed panellists from Deloitte Digital, William Hill, GSK, Netflix, and more, will weigh in on an abundance of hot topics, including getting the Enterprise onboard with DevOps, embracing cloud-native for the digital enterprise, and creating and maintaining remote high performing teams.

If you’re attending and want to hone in on the line-up pre-show, read on to get an overview of the panels and what you can gain from them. Also, you can whet your appetite with the rest of the conference agenda and the insight the event has to offer!

Getting the Enterprise onboard with DevOps
16th June, 10:05 – 10:45 am

  • Saul Zarrate – Chief Technology Officer, Altamira
  • Matt Livermore – Principal Solutions Consultant, Pagerduty
  • Scott Adams – Platform Engineer, Koodoo

As we shift to more digitally-led businesses, savvy senior leaders are looking more to their technical teams to help drive the company’s direction than more traditional top-down leadership. But not everyone really understands what DevOps is, what value it has and how it impacts them, their products and customers.

In this conversation, we’ll be looking at what DevOps principles should be applied, how to demonstrate the competitive advantage of adopting this approach, how to make the change management process inclusive and how to empower employees with self-service platforms.

Embracing Cloud Native for the Digital Enterprise
16th June, 11.15 – 11.55 am

  • Bogdan Sucaciu – Tech Lead, Deloitte Digital
  • Kenichi Shibata – Cloud Security Architect, Esure Group
  • Scott Adams – Platform Engineer, Koodoo
  • Mo Haghighi – Hybrid Cloud Build Leader EMEA, IBM

We regularly hear how cloud-native can drive forward enterprises with speed, efficiency, scalability and portability, but adopting a cloud-native approach is easier said than done! In this panel discussion, we look through the lens of people, process and technology and undercover how to embrace cloud-native enterprise-wide.

Plugging the Skills Gap in a Multi-Cloud environment
16th June, 15.00-15.40 pm

  • Saul Zarrate – Chief Technology Officer, Altamira
  • Chad Carlson – DevRel Engineer, Platform.sh
  • Andrew Dalmeny – Director of DevOps – R&D, GSK
  • Tejas Chopra – Sr. Software Engineer, Netflix

The acceleration of digital transformation roadmaps over the last year has made the demand for DevOps skills even bigger. For those moving to or operating in a multi-cloud environment too, enterprises can find themselves doubling up on Developers to get the know-how of each cloud provider. All this is expensive and if you don’t have the deep pockets or the uber-cool projects that will attract this talent pool, then how can you get the best from your digital roadmap? Drawing on the experience of our panel, we’ll attempt to navigate this hurdle with consideration to alternative talent pools, outsourcing, upskilling and DevOps as a Service.

Creating and maintaining remote high performing teams
17th June, 10.10-10.50am

  • Martyn Coupland – DevOps Institute
  • Konstantinos Ressopoulos – Director of Strategy and Transformation, Automation Logic
  • Ricardo Moreira – DevOps Manager, Vodafone
  • Michele Sollecito – Senior Director Head of Engineering, Revolut

While remote working might not have been a shock for developer teams, rapidly shifting IT roadmaps and new cloud-focused priorities are likely to have disrupted flow. As Managers, a motivated and productive team should be a top priority to ensure successful & timely delivery of projects. Drawing on the experience of Team Leaders, we’ll consider the factors that could be holding back your team:
– Reflecting on your management style and the soft skills to embrace
– How to build trust within the team
– Uncovering underlying issues and how to approach them
– Building a sense of ownership

Powering Enterprise Transformation through Open Source
17th June, 15.05-15.35 pm

  • Bogdan Sucaciu – Tech Lead, Deloitte Digital
  • Diego Molina – Staff Software Engineer, Sauce Labs
  • Dheeraj Nayal – Global Community Ambassador & Region Head – APJ & MEA region, DevOps Institute

The majority of enterprise IT professionals are using open source for application development and infrastructure modernisation, but these tools are also increasingly being leveraged for digital transformation. In this conversation, we’ll use examples to explore how to use open source to drive digital innovation, keep cloud costs in check and harness emerging technologies.
