Tricentis recently launched a new podcast Transformation in 10, bringing you expert insights for navigating transformations impacting application delivery. The “espresso-shot-sized” episodes feature interviews with innovators across the quality, DevOps, cloud, and business worlds.

Diving Into DevOps and Uncovering the Cloud
In the most recent episodes, we delve into DevOps and the cloud. I interview industry maestros Alan Shimel (CEO of DevOps.com) and Tracy Ragan (CEO of DeployHub). Both have been in the business of DevOps for decades, and their expertise shines through. We also speak with Cornelia Davis (CTO of Weaveworks), who shares how to thrive in the cloud-based on cloud-native patterns.
