Join the Summit

Do not miss out on the most updated DevOps Summit!


DevOps now is in its seventh /eighth year of practice but the old architecture is no longer able to support the speed of delivery and so needs the additional help of Microservices for incremental change. Microservices architecture helps to deliver easy testing, fast deployments and overall agility. It is also fairly complex—so to successfully implement Microservices, you need to understand the core concepts behind this approach. Adopting a new capability requires a plan that includes people, process and technology.

DevOps too is an enterprise capability and as the name suggests development and operation-based way of working that includes stakeholders, business owners, architecture, design, development, quality assurance, operations, security, partners and suppliers.

The two day programme is designed to connect these extensive aspects as well as the challenges. Expert practitioners and thought leaders will provide information on the implementation and help you to develop your business case. The two day programme will cover the concepts of the DevOps, Microservices architecture, Containers and will discuss the Present and Future of this.

Devops has been seen as something for the tech-people, no matter if they are developers or IT support. In reality Devops is about the culture of working together and automating everything that is repeated. This means that everyone in the organization should be involved and brought together; business, developers, quality assurance, contractors and IT operations. And most importantly, the management. We will have technical demos and workshops which require a certain level of technical expertise, but there will always be simultaneous events scheduled for the same time for more business oriented professionals.

Topic Abstract

Taking examples from the previous talk, we will show how we have implemented our DevOps learnings into the product we build – Azure DevOps. We will look at a day in the life of a Microsoft developer and see how Azure Devops helps more than 80,000 Microsoft engineers and millions of developers worldwide to plan smarter, collaborate better, and ship faster using a set of modern dev services.

Shankar Ramamoorthy, Chief Customer Success Officer, Harman

Topic Abstract

The idea of devops has come a long way in the few years since its creation. While it started as a movement so small that only a few people had even heard of it, it has grown into something that can be found nearly everywhere in the tech industry, from any piece of software that involves configuration or automation to huge conferences and expos packed with more commercial vendor pitches than actual content.

Some people have seen this and declared that Devops has jumped the shark, that the term has been used for so many things that it no longer has any meaning.

So where do we go from here? More than just teaching sysadmins how to write code or giving developers root access, Devops was originally a movement that aimed to reduce friction between development and operations teams. By applying these principles and the lessons that have been learned to other organizational pain points, we can give new meaning to the term and use that to enable companies and teams to scale product development to the next level. while there are many ways to do DevOps correctly, there are specific cardinal sins that will put you afoul of the Church of DevOps.. In order to achieve excellence in DevOps, it is key for executives to avoid committing the cardinal sins of DevOps that are discussed below.

1)You Treat DevOps as a Title, Not a Philosophy
2)You Don’t Have Buy-In From Everyone From the CIO on Down
3)You Don’t Focus on Metrics
4)Focusing on DevOps as a Race to Acquire More Tools
5)You Think That Failure Is Unacceptable
6)You Maintain the Divide Between Devs and Ops
7)Not Using Critical Alerting Tools

Committing any of these DevOps sins is not a mark that a company is irredeemable. Instead, recognizing the fault is probably the first way towards correcting it. The best advice is to work at unraveling one sin at a time and prevent Devops dying….

Prashant Agarwal, AVP, Societe Generale

Topic Abstract

The topics aims to demystify the Target Operating Model that a large Enterprise must choose in order to induce true Enterprise Agility. This would break into the details of Strategy, Culture, Process Technology and People changes required to achieve the same, while also highlighting the skills and traits needed all levels (Leadership, Management and Teams) to make this a reality.

Arun NARAYANASWAMY, Director Engineering, Amadeus LABS

Topic Abstract

The DevOps world is fast evolving, new tools emerge every now and then. The mantra for success lies in picking the best tools, being loosely coupled and hence being nimble enough to transform. Being ‘Devopsy’ within the tools and automation teams plays a key role in defining the way the organization works. “More is not always good” certainly when it’s with the number of tools you have. This talk touches upon various factors in tools selection, reducing the footprint, faster learning cycles and even faster adoption for a devops success.

Ravishankar N, Consultant, Tata Consultancy Services

Topic Abstract

Enterprise Agility is about collaboration and willingness to embrace risk, learn, improve and move forward. Transformation to Agility requires multi-dimensional changes and these changes are driven by people with the right mind set across the organization.

Typically in the early stages of a transformation people tend to be skeptical and demonstrate the 'cannot' syndrome - this cannot happen, we cannot do this and this is not the right way and so on. However leaders with positive approach and the right balance of aggression and patience can take along the onlookers and the skeptics and successfully transform towards enterprise wide Agile practices - not only in IT but also in the Business and Support functions

My presentation identifies the 'Cannot' syndrome towards Agile and DevOps related transformation at the hierarchical layers of an organization and explores the 'Art of the Possible' to transition people to a 'We can and will do it' journey.

Sushma Chakkirala, Program Director, IBM

Topic Abstract

DevOps is not just a technical problem. DevOps model aims to bring the various functions together, and this transformation can be accelerated with the right team structure. Which team structure is right for DevOps to flourish in my organization? Shared v/s decentralised models and other team topologies will be discussed in this session.

Vivek Sridhar, Tech Evangelist, Microsoft

Topic Abstract

Lets discussabout how to use custom metrics in combination with the Kubernetes Horizontal Pod Autoscaler(HPA) to autoscale an application. Virtual nodes (virtual-kubelet) let you scale quickly and easily run Kubernetes pods on Container Instances where you'll pay only for the container instance runtime. Demo application using ServiceMonitor for Prometheus, a HPA, and a custom container that will count the instances of the application and expose them to Prometheus. Finally, Grafana dashboard to view the metrics in real-time.

Priyank Gupta, Associate Partner & Solutions Consultant, Sahaj Software

Topic Abstract

Distributed systems are complex and hard to build. A lot of teams adopt distributed architecture to address scaling challenges. However, they fail to recognize the pitfalls of traditional development practices when applied to new paradigms. This talk is an attempt to outline best practices culminated over years to deliver products at a pace without traditional compromises of quality. It will highlight techniques to build products at speed with a solid engineering foundation. Real life examples will illustrate the change in thinking, methodology and technology required to deliver a product that is built well, built fast and built for reuse.

Anil Kasalanati, Director - Engineering, Technology Services and Operations, BT

Topic Abstract

In large organizations we need a mix of dev-ops/Agile and Design thinking to drive the agile culture. Tools should cater to dev-ops as well as Agile interworking. The tail will discuss about the agile and DevOps tools. In Agile tooling we would look at how JIRA/Confluence/prototyping should be integrated. And tool chains have to be achived via Paas/laas as there needs to be standardization across the development teams. How do we create the tool chains which are inter - usable across the development teams. What are the Paas/Clould offering and who can they be integrated into the developers life? What are the key elements of a good tool chain? How do we standardize the dev-ops tools across the company?

Vincent FUCHS, Technical architect, Societe Generale

Topic Abstract

After a brief introduction explaining the operational challenges of microservices, we'll quickly switch to the demo of the 2 tools I have implemented and open-sourced : gives you an up to date view of your repositories portfolio : what versions we're using (lib, Docker image, anything), what Jenkinsfile var is used, we can pretty much monitor everything that is relevant to our context. has one feature that enables to replicate smartly the same change automatically in any number of repositories.

We will see together a couple of use cases, and how these tools can help you make the right decisions, what to take into considerations before making a change "at scale", and how to perform the change in less than 2 minutes.

Prasanna Raghavendra, R&D Director, JFrog

Topic Abstract

Topic Abstract

Application architectures and designs are constantly evolving, the new kid on the block is MicroServices.This new architecture paradigm is rapidly gaining popularity.

From an organisation’s standpoint, that’s only half the story. On the other hand, cloud architectures and PaaS offerings have become ubiquitous giving Operations new opportunities and challenges. The developer wants to design to scale while SRE wants to operate at scale. How to get the best of both worlds? Let’s walkthrough an use case of using Springboot to develop REST services while leveraging the strength of a PaaS along with CI/CD (Jenkins, Docker etc)

Ashwin Murali, Associate Director of DevOps, Zoomcar

Topic Abstract

AWS is one of the largest cloud players in the world. In this session, we will discuss something most basic about AWS - How its software defined network delivers your application data. We will take a deep dive into how your VPC is structured, how the Internet Gateway works, how the Route table works and also how security groups work.

We'll also look at how to do Cross VPC connectivity through VPC Peering so we do not send data over the internet when talking to allied services.

This talk will require a basic understanding of Networking - IP Addresses, Subnets, CIDR blocks, packets, routing, etc.

Jeeva S. Chelladhurai, Founder, Comorin Consulting Services

Topic Abstract

Today DevOps is a business imperative and every organization wants to effectively embrace DevOps to be viable in business. However adopting DevOps is a major challenge for the organizations because it is a combination of cultural transformation and stitching multiple tools together. In this session we will setup an end-to-end DevOps pipeline using various DevOps tools like Docker, Kubernetes, Robot, Jenkins, Git and etc, stitch those tools together to demonstrate a live continuous integration, testing and deployment.
