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

In my current role we've seen both the good and bad sides of Agility and Resiliency - which in typical organisations are competing forces. To succeed in a modern landscape where technology needs to be the differentiator you need to do more than that, you need to be able to instrument and support for BOTH Agility and Resiliency.

This talk will cover the journey so far, from initial landscape to what we're doing today and what's planned for the next horizon as we look to build out our consumer offering with more brands and services.

Spoiler alert: It has a lot to do with people and culture.

Speaker Profile

An experienced technology and product leader, I’ve been working in digital since 2003 after graduating from UNSW with a Bachelor of Computer Engineering and a Masters in Biomedical Engineering.

With experience across the full technology and product life cycle - from pre-sales to ideation, scoping, project management, product management, solution architecture, engineering, analytics and then hosting and support I’ve been influencing companies and partners to adopt a mobile first approach and ensure that technology is both an enabler and a differentiator.

My core interests are in building effective teams, strategy, product management, automation and the creation of Products that meet the needs of customers by leveraging both quantitative and qualitative insights.

X Topic Abstract

Is your organisation able to deliver applications and services lighting fast: evolving and improving products at a faster pace than institutions that use traditional software development and infrastructure management processes? Ops, as we knew it ten years ago, is entirely dead. Ops, as we know it today, is most likely going to evolve into something different sooner rather than later.

DevOps is a culture, a transformation, a movement, a philosophy. As of 2017, your applications need to be deployed into production on demand. If you are not achieving this speed of deployment, changes are to be made: legacy monolithic apps should be modified into a loosely coupled and specialised set of microservices, culture must shift, and silos should be nonexistent.

This talk will illustrate a start-up journey: celebrations and challenges in adopting the DevOps philosophy to stay ahead and deliver high value to customers.

X Topic Abstract

Sociocracy 3.0 (S3) is a flexible open source guide that is purpose built to enhance collaboration at any scale. Founders Bernhard Bocklebrink and James Priest designed S3 with the intent for it to be suitable for any context. The result is an evolving set of patterns that lend themselves to a broad range of application. Here is a list of the benefits available to people experimenting with patterns;

Provides a coherent collection of principles based patterns for collaboration, to navigate complexity, adapt and evolve.

Incrementally processes available information into continuous improvement of the value stream, products, services and skills.

Helps organizations making the best use of the talent already present, and to grow flexible organizational structures to align the flow of information and influence to the flow of value

Provides an organic, iterative approach to change that meets organizations where they are and helps them move forward at their own pace and according to their unique context and needs.

Draws on the collective intelligence of the group

Facilitates the development of strategies that are “good enough for now” and “safe enough to try

Fosters accountability and a sense of engagement

Is a transformation mechanism for both individuals and the whole organisation

Today S3 is being used to enhance collaboration across Europe, South America and the United State. In this talk we’ll review the key patterns that make S3 such an effective toolkit for any context and provide real world examples of how to start using S3 with confidence.

Speaker Profile

Since entering the world of Agile I've facilitated a variety of different work in the finance and digital domains. Most often this has involved various forms of Scrum, Kanban and SAFe. Additionally I'm also personally quite passionate about Sociocracy 3.0 and how it can be blended with agile frameworks to enhance their capability. Through experience I've found that the agile landscape provides a rich tapestry of tools that solve problems, success tends to be found in the ability to finding the right tool for the situation.

Round Table Discussion

Participants join a table to discuss one or more of the Conference themes. Each table has a "Topic Guru" to facilitate the discussion.

X Topic Abstract

At Department of Industry, we have been developing in-house capability and automation skills, establishing (with the help of a 3rd party) and internal pipeline / deployment capability which allows us to deploy private clouds with all the associated governance, billing, account administration, automation (power-scaling), data protection policies and integration with our shared services offerings within 20 minutes (a process which a year ago too months).

This is all automated through centrally managed code repositories and provides a consistent, repeatable architecture which our department is not only interested in utilising within our own cluster, providing segmented but connected clouds for agencies we support but also at enabling other government departments to leverage our designs to enable increased efficiency and reduce the barriers to cloud adoption to help them on their maturity journey.

By adopting Open Source Principles; source control, peer-review, automated deployments I believe there is the opportunity to extrapolating this capability across government, essentially establishing a hive-mind of connected teams working continually to optimise and improve efficiency, scale, security and digital capability across government.

This would have multiple benefits not limited to enhancing cloud-based gov-to-gov connectivity, introducing referencable standards for cloud adoption patterns and improving government digital-first initiatives to better support the people of NSW all with immutable audit trail and transparency.

We would also like to establish a public sector "Cloud Academy" which would provide placement opportunities for students/cadets and other government staff to promote skills and devops culture which participants may take back to their individual teams / domains / personal careers and further contribute to the central repository of secure government cloud.

Speaker Profile

Strong interest in all things Agile/DevOps.

X Topic Abstract

The status quo seen in organisations today includes low cooperation across groups and a culture of blame, information is often withheld for personal gain and responsibilities are compartmentalised by departments, with little concern for the overall mission of the organisation. The flip side of it, where an engineering culture is in place, we have good information flow, high cooperation and trust, bridging between teams, and conscious inquiry. Organisations who are actively evolving their engineering effectiveness are achieving the ability to promote small and frequent changes, creating a culture of learning.

High-performing IT Organisations are experiencing a noticeable increase in throughput, predictability, visibility, stability, quality, business responsiveness, happiness, sense of purpose and professional pride. At the same time they are decreasing risk, cost of maintenance, disruptive variability, failure rate, time to recovery, lead time, queue time, time to learn, burnout, turnover and rework.

In terms of data, the 2017 edition of the State of DevOps Report says that High IT Performers are deploying software 46x more frequent, their change failure rate is 5x lower, their lead time for changes is 440x faster and their mean time to recover (MTTR) is 96x faster.

They also spend 26% less time on unplanned work and rework and 44% more time on new work. Their employees are 2.2x more likely to recommend their organisation as a great place to work and 1.8x more likely to recommend their team to a friend as a great working environment.

This conversation will explore what organisations are doing to nurture and grow a culture of high-performance.
