Jim spent years on the user side of APM solving problems, fighting fires, and trying to convince all of his APM vendors that they could (and should) do better. His passion for performance tuning and troubleshooting led him from systems and application administration to working as an APM Architect tasked with designing an integrated ecosystem capable of monitoring next generation data centers and the applications housed within. Jim never passed up an opportunity to test drive and provide feedback on (pick apart) an APM vendors offering so he has used most of the tools out there. Jim’s viewpoint is a result of work in a high pressure Financial Services environment but his methods and approach apply to any IT organization that strives for greatness.

Moving the DevOps Needle in Enterprise Organizations

  • submit to reddit
DevOps has proven itself across many smaller organizations but large enterprises are usually slow to change. It can be a daunting task even identifying where to make changes since there are so many processes and organizational silos to get in the way. As a veteran employee of small, medium, and large enterprises I have figured out ways to drive organizational change based upon getting results. In this presentation I will describe my methods for creating change within and across organizations and provide specific examples of how to begin a meaningful shift towards making DevOps a standard practice within your organization. I’ll detail some of the roadblocks to making DevOps a reality and explain how to overcome these obstacles.
