COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo., June 1, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- HDI and itSMF USA, two leaders in the world of IT service management (ITSM), today announced the launch of the DevOps FUSION Summit—a groundbreaking event that will lead the way in demonstrating the combined benefits of DevOps and ITSM. Co-located with FUSION 15 at the Hyatt Regency in New Orleans, the DevOps FUSION Summit will take place November 1-2, 2015.

Through two days of immersive sessions, attendees will learn how the collaboration and integration of cross-functional teams of developers, QA, DBAs, business analysts, and IT operations leads to continuous software delivery, stability in operating environments, less complex problems with faster resolution times, and the improved delivery of business value from IT investments. The integration of DevOps and ITSM represents the natural progression of the industry and unlocks higher levels of value.
"In our increasingly service-oriented world, there is great value in the collaboration between development and operations staff throughout all stages of the development lifecycle — from design through the development process to all levels of production support," says Michelle Frilow, HDI's director of events and conferences. "Because of that, we can't think of a better platform to showcase DevOps than FUSION 15."
The jam-packed schedule includes access to the FUSION expo hall, two general sessions featuring keynote speakers, various networking opportunities, roundtable discussions, and dozens of targeted learning sessions in the following categories:
- DevOps Perspective: Setting the Stage for Collaboration
- DevOps/ITSM Deep Dives
- Establishing the Way Forward
- DevOps/ITSM Case Studies at Work
"Those who are unfamiliar with the emphasis organizations are putting on the DevOps methodology will soon discover the value that is realized when it is fully integrated with IT service management," adds Charles Araujo, president of itSMF USA. "The DevOps FUSION Summit will provide ITSM, IT Operations and development professionals with meaningful information, proven methods, and practical approaches that will foster collaboration and help move DevOps and ITSM forward in their organizations."
Several conference registration options are available: Attendees can choose the DevOps FUSION Summit package (November 1-2, 2015), or combine it with the overall FUSION 15 conference (November 1-4, 2015) for a more well-rounded experience covering all ITSM-related hot topics through eighty sessions within nine learning tracks.
