About the event

The term "DevOps" typically refers to the emerging professional movement that advocates a collaborative working relationship between Development and IT Operations, resulting in the fast flow of planned work achieving the value stream that is between the business (where requirements are defined) and the customer (where value is delivered). It is a new way of looking at development altogether.

This conference "DevOps Summit" brings together leading practitioner-organisations who have achieved Continuous Delivery and organisational transformation.

Learn more about DevOps skills, Delivering Processes, Tools for building and deployment, Legacy Challenges, Security Integration, Cross-team engagement and many more.

X Topic Abstract

As they say, nothing is more dangerous than using yesterday’s logic for today’s problems, yet we are still working in our organisations with mental models that were inspired by manufacturing. You can see artefacts of it even in the language we use: people are resources and they work in development factories. If we are surprised why our transformations are not progressing as fast as we hoped when Agile took the stage, then looking to these old mental models provides part of the answer. In this talk I will explain from practical experience in my work, how the old models still influence us every day and how we can break away from them and learn new models. I will give positive and negative examples from real projects to show that it is normal to experience failures and how to course correct from the lessons such failures teach us.

I will also provide pragmatic steps that everyone can take in their own organisations that don’t rely on buying new tools or following specific methods. Charting your own course starts with understanding where the problem is and understanding where our mental models let us down is part of that journey.

Speaker Profile

Mirco leads the Accenture Agile & DevOps practice in Asia Pacific with focus on Agile transformations, DevOps and Test Automation. He has for over a dozen years worked on accelerating software delivery through innovative approaches (what would now be called DevOps) and 10 years ago started experimenting with Agile methods. He started using Agile as a last resort when one of his projects was faced with ever changing requirements resulting in frequent updates to the project plan. Adopting an Agile methodology turned the project around and he has been promoting Agile principles ever since. He supports major public and private sector companies in Australia and overseas in their search for efficient IT delivery. He shares his experiences on and while speaking at international conferences. He is the author of "DevOps for the Modern Enterprise", a book helping companies adopt Agile & DevOps and push through the transformation barriers caused by legacy technology and legacy thinking.

X Topic Abstract

DevOps initially started out as term that covered infrastructure automation, and has traditionally focussed around Cloud based providers. Highly regulated enterprise environments, will have a number of unique challenges that need to be overcome in order for DevOps to be successful. Aside from ensuring that security is baked in from the beginning and not simply an afterthought, enterprise DevSecOps will also have to deal with external legislative requirements, there could also be multiple internal requirements to meet as well, segregation of duties, change control boards, external (outsourced) providers running your on-premises hardware to name a few. This talk covers the migration from project based to delivery to an embedded cross functional DevSecOps asset team in a highly regulated banking environment. It also provides a view of future work that furthers us in the direction of analytics and NoOps, and the challenges that it brings.

X Topic Abstract

The change is here. Emerging technology is moving at speed through the innovation/adoption curve and has reached a point where bleeding edge technology has rapidly entered the enterprise to redefine how consumers and businesses engage, interact and exchange value.

This technological leap forward requires businesses to have a vision on how to implement and optimise those technologies for competitive advantage; and how to redefine the end to end customer experience and dissolve unnecessary friction.

In this session, Craig Fulton will explore the adoption of emerging concepts and technologies, and how they are reshaping the Banking and Financial Services industry, such as blockchain powered dispute resolution, and Open Banking platforms which are defining new interactions and opportunities for digital commerce.

X Topic Abstract

While microservices are all the rage these days, for many organisations the overhead and complexity required to manage and orchestrate a microservices application doesn’t make sense. But just because you’re not “doing microservices” doesn’t mean you can’t go on the journey to Continuous Delivery! In this talk, we’ll discuss a number of techniques you can use to make your monolith more majestic multiple times per day or week, rather than once or twice a year. Drawing on real-world examples, we’ll talk about feature-flags, Platform-as-a-Service, and blue-green deployments as stepping stones to deploying frequently and without downtime. The techniques are applicable to all tech-stacks, but the examples will be .NET-focused.

X Topic Abstract

Now that we're writing Infrastructure as Code (IoC), there are substantial concepts that we can borrow from proven software design patterns that can make our DevOps awesome. Learn how you can use practices like Separation of Concerns, Service Oriented Design and the Single Responsibility Principle to make your infrastructure code clean, modular, easy to use and easy to maintain. We will look at real life examples, and discuss the differences in outcomes after these principles have been applied.
