Can you believe that we’re two weeks away from DevOps Enterprise Summit San Francisco (#DOES16)? It came up so fast!
As the founding partner of the conference, we’re forging ahead with IT Revolution to bring you the most exciting DevOps event to date. As we all strive together to identify and amplify best practices around DevOps and modern software delivery, it’s vital that we gain as many perspectives on the challenges and successes as possible.
For over a decade, Electric Cloud has focused on helping large enterprises – the so-called horses – become better at releasing software. This year at DOES, several of our customers are going to share their unique DevOps transformations stories at the conference. We can’t wait to learn from their use cases and experiences scaling DevOps at enterprises from such diverse industries, such as HPE, Quicken Loans, Intel, and more.
Electric Cloud Customers Speaking at DOES16
Daniel Perez, Build and Deploy Architect, HPE
HPE’s Research Development and Engineering team has been on a fast-tracked DevOps journey over the past couple of years. Two years ago, they started with enabling their entire organization to use ElectricFlow as a highly available and centralized self-service solution for building, testing, and deployment pipelines.
Then, in 2015, they expanded to comprehensive monitoring, self-healing, and accelerated deployment strategy across all applications to support fully automated deploys and self-healing.
Join us this year as HPE continues on their DevOps journey with their biggest transformation yet: the proliferation of ChatOps within the organization. HPE shares the decisions that lead them to this investment, the key lessons learned, and share their various HubSpot integrations and capabilities.
Tyler Underwood, Sr. Application Engineer, Quicken Loans
A champion in the workforce is a person and/or team that drives positive transformation and understands best-practice principles to implement. DevOps is a journey, and – more than any shiny new technology – at its core, it’s all about the people. DevOps requires a cultural and mindset shift. It’s a new way of thinking, empowering, and collaborating that requires champions in the organization to drive this transformation. This talk shares the journey of Quicken Loans’ to lead a DevOps transformation in the organizations:
- How do you move from heroes to champions to scale your DevOps adoption in the organization?
- How do you use The Three Ways: The Principle Underpinning DevOps to accelerate your DevOps rollout?
- What did we learn from potential challenges encountered along the way?
- What are some tactics for ensuring buy-in and encouraging participation both at the executive level and the team-level?
- How do you work with legacy applications (and sometimes “legacy” people) on your road to DevOps?
- Tips for how champions grease the wheels for moving DevOps transformations forward.
Manish Aggarwal, Software Tech Lead, Intel
Software quality matters. Thorough testing is a critical step that is often handled manually, introducing risk and delay and unpredictability in the process. Join us to hear how the Intel Avago QA team transformed their processes using DevOps principles to:
- Continuously increase the quality of their testing and release pipeline.
- Eliminate manual handoffs and increase code coverage.
- Build and test any version of their software on any combination of hardware, on-demand.
- Re-use automation to cover more ground – code coverage, memory leaks, and binary compatibility.
- Detect errors quickly to optimize for quality.
Marc Priolo, Software Configuration Manager, Urban Science
Urban Science is a global automotive retail performance expert that serves nearly every automotive OEM in over 70 countries. By leveraging analytics of consumer behavior, their products help automotive dealers sell more vehicles, improve profitability ,and increase customer loyalty.
Two years ago at DOES14, Marc from Urban Science presented “Vision Versus Execution: Implementing Continuous Delivery.” He shared how they achieved a big Continuous Delivery win: increasing software test coverage and delivery velocity and efficiency.
Since then, Urban Science has been busy scaling DevOps, Continuous Delivery, and Lean principles across teams and practices throughout the organization. This rollout included both a cultural aspect and an implementation of a centralized, shared, self-service automation solution for our teams, enabling them to “opt-in” to an automated pipeline.
In this talk, Marc presents anecdotes and learnings gathered through their experience over the past two years and discusses the challenges and the value of scaling DevOps across the organization.
Eddie Garcia, DevOps Practice Manager, Bluware Inc.
Grassroots DevOps Taking Roots: you don’t always have the luxury of a top-down DevOps initiative. What is a non-conforming DevOps-minded individual to do? Become a DevOps guerilla and start a grassroots DevOps movement. The presentation will center around two cases: the Mac Office team at Microsoft and implementing DevOps at a major oil and gas company. The key to both of these cases is that there was much resistance to change and the change was brought on from the bottom up. What is offered are techniques to use to build consensus and momentum for your very own grassroots DevOps movement.
In addition to these great customer talks, Electric Cloud’s own DevOps experts will take the stage to share their insights on modern application delivery, new technologies shaping DevOps, as well as tips and tricks for using ElectricFlow for some of the more challenging use cases and huge scale that we’ve seen with our enterprise customers.
These talks include:
In this talk, you’ll get to meet Electric Cloud’s technical field and PM team in a series of nine fast-paced lightning talks that cover the nuts and bolts for some advanced use cases supporting enterprise pipelines with ElectricFlow. ElectricFlow is a powerful end-to-end DevOps platform for software delivery used by large organizations to solve complex problems that span teams, technologies, and global territories. Come learn how some of our more advanced customers are taking advantage of features like access control, rollbacks, pipelines, reusable components, DSL, agent resource management, and more to scale up and standardize their processes in order to release faster while ensuring security, compliance, and control.
(Also, if you’re an Electric Cloud customer attending DOES16, don’t forget that you can take advantage of ElectricFlow and ElectricAccelerator training during the event!)
We’re excited to see ElectricFlow and our customers take center stage at DOES – and we’re in excellent company! Check out all of the other great speakers and conference sessions here.
