Why DevOps is hard – #SAFeSummit2018


I had the privilege to present my lightning talk at SAFe Summit 2018 Washington DC (https://2018.safesummit.com/sessions/lightning-talks-350pm-405pm/) on 04 Oct 2018.


The lightning talks are engaging 15-minute presentations where SAFe summit attendees share their knowledge and experience with others. With a room full with SAFe practitioners, enthusiasts and learners, it was a great opportunity to demonstrate lessons learnt during various DevOps engagements in different industries and at different scales.

Given the format of the talk, 15 mins was too short to cover such a broad topic. There were many attendees who had queued after the session to ask their questions / queries. We also exchanged ideas around how DevOps strategy could be a great topic for enterprises who are starting their agile transformation journey. It was a great experience, so much of energy and common interest in a single location.


The details of talk is as follows:
Title :”Why DevOps is hard”

Scaling DevOps – take a holistic approach to drive business value

DevOps Pilot to Enterprise

Different People understand DevOps differently. In majority of cases people focus only on Tools and believe DevOps is all about tools. Few people start with processes related to software engineering or technical excellence and try to over-engineer them. Very few people holistically understand what DevOps means and how DevOps can help business value delivery. Don’t get me wrong here – It’s okay to start with tools or process focus, however that’s not what DevOps is all about.
