DevOps: Mission Impossible? Live at VMworld 2013

Virtualisation needs to move beyond the business value of simply consolidating workloads and saving on power and cooling. Virtualisation now offers the ability for businesses to transform their operational models and more importantly their application lifecycle release management practices.

At the recent VMworld held in Barcelona I was lucky enough to present at the vBrownbag sessions to explain how DevOps is now a fundamental methodology for attaining a successful software lifecycle development plan. 

In this ten minute presentation, we address how the current challenges of existing methodologies and traditional set ups of segregated operations and development teams and how DevOps can enable true agility in the application lifecycle process. We also suggest a Private Cloud model that could essentially be utilised to transform current practices to a DevOps methodology and consequently generating significant value to business that are desperate to release new features and offerings in minimum time and at minimum cost.
