Join the Next DOES16 #c9d9 Video Chat with Gene Kim and Conference Speakers

Gene Kim and DevOps Thought Leaders Share DevOps Best Practices

It’s hard to believe that the 2016 DevOps Enterprise Summit (#DOES16) is less than two months away!

As the founding partner of the event, we’re working with IT Revolution to help produce the most successful and memorable event yet. Together, we’re continuously working towards building and supporting a strong DevOps community, which we’re excited to say is chock-full of people who are eager to not only learn about best practices from others in the industry, but also share their unique challenges and opportunities. This year, we are excited to have many speakers (representing Docker, Capital One, Nationwide, GitHub, Heroku and more) coming back for a second, or even third, time to share new insights and the latest developments along their transformation journeys.

Plus, make sure to check out speakers from Electric Cloud and our customers, who will also be taking the stage to share their DevOps transformations story. The past two years have sold out, and  this year is on track to do the same – so don’t miss out on your chance to attend the show, register now!

Wooed by the promise of faster innovation, lower TCO, and greater agility, businesses of every shape and size have embraced the cloud at every layer of the IT stack – from apps to file sharing to infrastructure.

Such cloud investments have delivered measurable benefits. But they’ve also resulted in some unintended side-effects: complexity and risk. ...

The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...
More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smart...
When you focus on a journey from up-close, you look at your own technical and cultural history and how you changed it for the benefit of the customer.

We needed something that would take us beyond reducing the development lifecycles, CI and Agile methodologies. We made a fundamental difference, even changed our culture...
