The DevOps Leadership Summit 2017 Wrap Up

We couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful day for the DevOps Leadership Summit, which took place on Tuesday, June 20th at the Battery Wharf Hotel in Boston! The sun was out and the waterfront location was sublime—a perfect setting for gathering with customers and colleagues to share stories and ideas about everything DevOps.

Our CEO, Derek Langone, kicked off the event with a warm welcome to all our guests.

Tim Buntel, XebiaLabs’ VP of Products, followed with a talk about how building a bridge to Enterprise DevOps starts with a strong foundation and evolves towards creating a “smart bridge” that allows organizations to use DevOps Intelligence to drive continual improvement and focus on business goals.

Despite a grueling 24-hour trip from the West Coast due to major thunderstorms, DevOps Guru, Gene Kim, arrived at the event with lots of energy! He shared with us 6 key lessons learned since writing his popular book, The Phoenix Project.
