Class Description

Teach your teams to manage infrastructure, operations, and production work the Agile way with Agile DevOps training. A true DevOps transformation starts by driving the principles and practices of agility beyond development teams to everyone involved in the IT value chain.

 

Successful DevOps transformation starts with top-to-bottom agility throughout your entire organization.

Despite the widespread success of Agile development practices, success is limited if Agile practices do not reach beyond development teams to deploy products delivering measurable value. Scalability, continuous integration, and ongoing maintenance in the production environment are just as critical to organizational success as the development effort itself.

In the quest for end-to-end value, DevOps has arisen as a professional movement which is both a reaction to and an expansion of Agile success. As agility increases speed and quality with which development teams produce features and products, it creates challenges for other departments tasked with deploying and maintaining them. DevOps transformation is the key to bridging these organizational gaps and resolving bottlenecks and handoff challenges in the value chain.

 

In this two-day, hands-on Agile DevOps training course, you will learn to apply Agile practices which enable organizational DevOps transformation.

 

Before new engineering or automation tools can be effective, DevOps success starts with Agile culture and practices — applied in development teams and beyond. This two-day Agile DevOps training course teaches Agile skills which can be applied to both development and every other role in the value chain of a product or feature. This Agile DevOps training course will increase the agility and effectiveness of anyone who plays a part in delivering, deploying or maintaining Agile projects.
