Accelerate Your Plans to Become a Modern Software Factory by Aligning Agile and DevOps Initiatives
Initiatives dedicated to Agile and DevOps are largely run on different cadences with sometimes competing objectives. Each transformation needs the other to be successful, and neither transformation can meet its objectives without being aligned with the other. In this session we will share real experiences where we challenged customers to align these efforts and the business results that occurred.
