DevOps for Executives

Together with experts from Praqma we invite decision makers, managers, and executives to inspire and lead change towards DevOps and Continuous Delivery.

The IT consultancy specializing in Continuous Delivery and DevOps, Praqma, will at this meetup explain what DevOps is: the realization of the promise of Agile. Many organizations today have discovered that the effectiveness of their technology organization drives market performance. It’s too important for the leadership team to leave to the IT department alone.


This seminar goes through some of the technical and organizational practices that state of the art research shows have a positive impact on business outcomes.


You will learn about common challenges and misconceptions in DevOps and Agile transformations.


Leadership teams often take this opportunity to put questions to our experienced speakers, so there is a lot of space in the agenda for discussion. It’s a chance to talk to people who have seen many transformations and can clearly explain the benefits and pitfalls you can expect.


After attending the seminar you will have a good grasp of DevOps as a concept, the practices that drive organizational performance and the challenges of DevOps transformations.


Target audience: C-level, Executives, R&D, Project or QA Managers, and similar profiles.

This meetup targets management and decision makers who wish to obtain an abstract technical knowledge about the best practices within DevOps. Hence, this is not a deep technical seminar demonstrating technical software development demos.
