HDI Los Angeles Chapter Meeting Wednesday, February 15th, 5:30 PM

Event Sponsor:  CollabNet

Roy Atkinson Presents:

“How DevOps Thinking Can Improve Service and Support”

Defining DevOps has proven to be problematic: It isn’t a framework like ITIL® or a standard like the HDI Support Center Standard. Now, DevOps is mentioned everywhere, and has become one of those buzzwords people hear a lot but may not fully understand. This presentation will explore:
• A brief history of DevOps
• Myths about DevOps
• Why DevOps doesn’t mean ITIL® is dead
• How support can learn and benefit from DevOps and more.

Who should attend:
• Forward-thinking IT leaders
• Support center directors, managers, and leads who seek to improve processes
