WSO2 VP of Platform Evangelism Will Present How to Accelerate Software Delivery in a PaaS Environment at DevOps Conference West 2015

Session will examine how teams can overcome DevOps adoption challenges and accelerate application delivery by moving design, development, and continuous delivery to a PaaS

Mountain View, CA – June 10, 2015 – Organizations seek to create systems developed in a DevOps framework. However, people, processes and tools often hinder an IT team's ability to comply with security policies, streamline collaboration, and rapidly deliver business value. At DevOps Conference West 2015, WSO2 Vice President of Platform Evangelism Chris Haddad will explore how to overcome these challenges by moving to a platform as a service (PaaS) environment. The conference runs June 7-12, 2015 at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, NV.

Overcoming DevOps Adoption Barriers

Chris will present, “Overcome DevOps Adoption Barriers to Accelerate Software Delivery,” on Wednesday, June 10, 2015 at 4:15 p.m. – 5:15 p.m. as part of the “DevOps & The Cloud” track. In his session, he will examine how merging DevOps activities, polyglot PaaS capabilities, and governance practices can help enterprises to overcome organizational barriers, create better software, and accelerate software delivery.

Chris will begin with an overview of how moving design, development, and continuous delivery into a PaaS environment can help organizations and teams more readily adopt DevOps practices, integrate governance compliance frameworks, and follow agile methodologies with distributed teams. He then will examine how to change software culture by employing an environment and tooling that promote collaboration, rapid iterations, and painless compliance. Additionally, Chris will discuss the tools enterprises need, along with a step-by-step approach for developing robust and secure software within a DevOps framework.
