April 2019 SIM Member Monthly Meeting

AWS and Dev Ops Transformation 

Many organizations treat DevOps and Cloud transformation as separate projects, when actually it makes more sense and saves money to treat them as one ongoing modernization journey.  In this session, Kelly Looney, a Dev Ops leader with AWS, will present lessons learned via real-life examples at Amazon, using the fascinating Amazon transformation story to detail both the advantages and the challenges of modern software processes and technology.  The goal of the presentation is to better prepare attendees for the challenges they will face with both types of transformation. 

Key Takeaways:

  • Learn why DevOps and Cloud are critical to almost every business

  • Understand the key challenges and common pitfalls in making the transformation work

  • Learn how to best use AWS and their partner ecosystem to make the transition
