Movie frame Bola RotibiMind the Gap: How to bridge the gap between development and operations with release management

The release management process remains challenging for large IT organizations due to the continuing disconnect between development, QA, and operations teams. The challenge faced by these large enterprises is that process maturity, methodology, and platforms vary greatly across teams, organizations and business units. These challenges often produce gaps between development and operations teams. Release management is still being done, but with very inconsistent results and at a high cost, providing minimal insight and a lack of audit compliance. Join us as Julian Fish, Director of Products at Serena Software, demonstrates how the unique integration framework and process capabilities of Serena Release Control can deliver a consistent and repeatable process that provides complete traceability, audit and compliance across Waterfall, Progressive and Agile processes, for both ITIL and DevOps approaches, and supporting Mainframe to mobile platforms.

For over 20 years ITIL has reigned supreme as undisputed king of the IT infrastructure operations while Dev people opted not to play at all on the infrastructure side.  But now relative newcomer DevOps has pulled the rug out from under King ITIL.  DevOps has reshaped the entire landscape around releasing new projects into an established infrastructure environment.  So who will win in the end?

Movie frame Bola Rotibi5 Keys to Building a Successful DevOps Culture

Building a DevOps culture requires more than installing a configuration management system, using a source code repository, and telling your teams "Ok, now we are all doing DevOps." Organizational culture is comprised of a shared set of values and behaviors. Tools help us create process, which in turn influences our behaviors. Unfortunately, tools alone aren't enough to create a stable culture for collaboration that we now think of as DevOps. Join Mandi Walls, author of the ebook “Building a DevOps Culture” and Serena Software as we outlines strategies for building a DevOps culture, including aligning incentives, defining meaningful and achievable goals, and creating a supportive team environment.

Tools like Jenkins, Puppet and Chef are frequently used as part of a DevOps automation solution. Building a full release management solution which includes DevOps automation using open source software alone can be done successfully but at the cost of needing to have large teams of experts to chain things together. Commercial software can help bridge the gap and make you productive without needing large teams to create and maintain your tools.
