CT-SPIN #100: 99 Problems but DevOps ain’t one

Wine Sponsor

Polymorph Systems

The state of the art in infrastructure management has come a long way in the past two decades, yet in spite of the growth in fields like DevOps and Infrastructure Architecture there are still major hurdles to be overcome when provisioning and deploying systems and software.

In today’s fast-paced world of endless feature-demands and critical, remote, cloud-based systems it’s more important than ever to step back and take a careful look at where we are, and where we’re going to.

Sven’s slides are available at http://bit.ly/sven-spin-100.
