WHAT:

"Solving the 1-10-100 Problem: Extending Continuous Delivery to QA and Ops"




In many medium and large organizations, friction between Agile application development, quality assurance, and operation teams kills productivity. During their presentation, Kersten and Voinigescu will discuss how the typical continuous delivery loop fails to take into account the need for bi-directional communication with QA. The growing role of IT operations in the application lifecycle means it needs to be connected to the same continuous delivery loop, and be linked directly into the Agile planning processes. The presenters will explore how extending the collaboration loop to operations potentially flattens the exponential 1-10-100 cost curve into a linear one.
