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 and 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

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….

Topic Abstract

Large traditional organizations are finding it difficult to adopt continuous delivery. Enterprises also have additional challenges such as semi-development life cycles, lengthy process, skill mismatch and security/compliance requirements. This session is based on lessons learned in adopting continuous delivery for a 1000+ organization in IBM. Session includes techniques used to systematically manage the transformation using a data driven approach and standard frameworks. It also talks about effective ways to measure DevOps transformation across an organization

Nagaraju Kakarla, General Manager - Cloud & DevOps, Mindtree

Topic Abstract

As many of us know, DevOps has been real and viral particularly last few years with almost every IT organization adopting this new age practice in their quest to make software delivery faster to market with high quality. The 2018 State of DevOps Report has called out that best-in-class DevOps organizations are way ahead of the rest of the industry while many are still struggling to implement it the right way to achieve visible and measurable outcomes. A lot of chaos exists w.r.t to tools, process, culture, automation, etc even after an organization embarks on DevOps. I intend to bring to the fore my varied experience in helping scores of our customers implement DevOps at different scale & maturity levels- starters, at mid-way through, and fairly advanced- as part of their Digital Transformation.

Sankar Subramaniam, Sr. Director, CA Technology

Topic Abstract

Agile transformed the way organizations create and release software. Software development lifecycles have been compressed and organizations focus on delivering incremental value rapidly to customers. However, one major challenge they encounter is a huge delta between testing and production environments. Organizations increasingly rely on DevOps to enable their development and operations team to collaborate effectively and tackle such challenges as they Plan, Build, Test, and Release software.

These organizations care deeply about Agile and DevOps because they are embarking on a Digital Transformation journey. The journey involves reinventing this business models to offer digital experiences to their customers. Organizations understand that to successfully implement digital transformation, they need to implement Agile and DevOps effectively.

One of the key factors that slows down the DevOps cycle is decision making. People wait for multiple stakeholders to make crucial decisions before embarking of the next step of the DevOps Lifecyle. A manual and slow DevOps cycle means longer release cycles for applications which can be a massive speed breaker in an organization’s digital transformation journey. Can organizations automate intelligent decision making in the DevOps lifecycle by using machines that continuously learn? Will this help delivery agility, automate DevOps, and accelerate Digital Transformation?

Let’s get some answers in my upcoming session at the DevOps Summit.

Topic Abstract

Every new software product release introduces new features and functionalities that directly affects the existing technical benchmarks. Benchmarking as part of PDLC helps to shape up the product better in many aspects like maintaining/tuning tps & performance even after addition of new features, preparing environments with appropriate storage, memory etc. accordingly.

Typical benchmarks include transaction processing/sec (tps), server processor requirements, memory requirements, storage capacity etc.

In this DevOps summit, you will learn why benchmarking is key part of DevOps and how machine learning can possibly be used in predicting the server requirements based on client needs

Topic Abstract

Over the last few years, the adoption of cloud has skyrocketed amongst not just small or medium-sized enterprises but also very large software organizations. DevOps team in this new era need to reinvent themselves by transforming themselves into the guardian of the cloud infrastructure and enabling application development teams to think cloud-native. This need changes in the way not just DevOps teams interact but the way the entire software is developed. This talk will cover some of the aspects and how DevOps teams can be more effective in this new era.

Topic Abstract

Despite increasing application security budgets, testing platforms and tools, the same security errors are routinely found in applications day after day, year after year. According to a 2017 industry report based on 400,000 scans, applications passed OWASP Top 10 policy only 30% of the time, and this is consistent for the past 5 years. Astonishingly, SQL injections appeared in almost 1 in 3 newly scanned applications over the past 5 years, including last year. The fact that the same flaws are consistently found is evidence of an endemic problem, and so too are reports that show developers are not fixing the vast majority of them. Anecdotally, we know that many companies become so frustrated with the sheer volume of flaws they find and the conflict-ridden process of trying to get developers to fix them, they stop scanning altogether and cross their fingers. The “developer vs security game” is currently an unhappy one, and the only winners appear to be the black hat hackers. However, as software takes over the world and becomes part of everything, every day, and the threat landscape continues to expand, it is time to change the game. Positive security is the fastest and easiest way to improve application security. Imagine a scenario where developers embraced their responsibility for security; where they were taught to write secure code from the start, including in real time, and to actually avoid creating many of the bugs in the first place. Imagine if they could fix secure coding problems as they arise and share that knowledge with their peers, so every developer didn’t have to figure it out for themselves. Imagine if highly skilled security managers and testers could focus on finding and fixing the really challenging, complex bugs rather than sending developers after nebulous minor issues with limited instructions. This presentation showcases the principles and practice of “positive security” and explains why it is an important game changer that will substantially improve application security. - Understanding the conflict security and development and how to change it to a positive - Why moving the focus from finding vulnerabilities to writing secure code is so important - How to motivate developers to think and act with a security mindset every day - A blueprint for making developer security training more simple, scalable and positive - How to ‘shift left’ on the SDLC in a way that helps developers get better at secure coding, as they code - Case studies of success - and what doesn’t work.

    Topic Abstract

    The core values of DevOps based on the CALMS model encompass various practices apart from tools. However, most people think of DevOps as automation and tools and miss the focus of the other core values. This talk is focused on the various practices and tools that enhance the DevOps core values and lead to improved satisfaction for the customer. High performing organizations move faster and build more secure and resilient systems by focusing on the core values of DevOps. Hence, if the core values of DevOps are understood by the organization, they will be in a better position to deliver more value to the customer effectively

    Topic Abstract

    His workshop will offer attendees a hands-on, gamified training environment where they compete against each other to become the ultimate ‘Secure Code Warrior’. Participants can first select from various software languages to compete in a tournament, including Java EE, Java Spring, C# MVC, C# WebForms, Ruby on Rails, Python Django and Node.Js. Attendees are then presented with three kinds of vulnerable code challenges: identify the problem, locate the insecure code, and fix the vulnerability. Elements such as published leaderboards and configurable point systems will make the exercise a fun, engaging and interactive experience.

    Attendees will:

  • Learn how to code securely and not introduce security issues in code.
  • Learn how to identify vulnerabilities in code.
  • Learn how to fix existing vulnerability in code.
  • Learn about the most common mistakes developers make in code, including the OWASP top 10
  • Understand that there are different ways of coding securely, but that some solutions are actually better than others.

    Topic Abstract

    The first generation of microservices was primarily shaped by Netflix OSS and leveraged by numerous Spring Cloud annotations all throughout your business logic. The next generation of microservices will leverage sidecars and a service mesh. In this session, we will give you a taste of Envoy and Istio, two open source projects that will change the way you write Cloud Native, Java Applications on Kubernetes.

    Service Mesh alleviates most common distributed computing pain points like smart routing, traffic splitting, smart canaries etc., In this session we will explore on how to download, setup Istio on your local laptop, deploy few Java Microservices as part of the Istio Service Mesh via Istio sidecar proxy. By virtue of adding a sidecar the applications will be spiced with ability in splitting traffic between various version of services, smart routing using request headers, doing chaos engineering etc. “ALL THESE WITHOUT CODE REDEPLOYS”

    Topic Abstract

    Prometheus is an open-source systems monitoring and alerting toolkit built initially at SoundCloud. Since its inception in 2012, many companies and organisations have adopted Prometheus, and the project has a very active developer and user community. It is now a standalone open source project and maintained independently of any company. To emphasise this, and to clarify the project's governance structure, Prometheus joined the Cloud Native Computing Foundation in 2016 as the second hosted project, after Kubernetes. In 2018, Cloud Native Computing Foundation Announces Prometheus Graduation.

    In this workshop we will discuss the following:

  • Prometheus Features, Components & Architectures.
  • Prometheus - where doe it fit?
  • Visualization with Grafana
  • Alerting
  • Advanced Prometheus (Exporter and Integrations)
  • Live demo - Monitoring Containers with Prometheus (writing query/ alerts/graphs and understanding console and more)
