Taking DevOps to the Org Chart

In order to realize the full potential of DevOps, it is insufficient to only aim for better engineering techniques and greater automation, hard as that may be in itself. One of the implications of DevOps is a merger of development and corresponding operations teams into several build-it-and-run-it teams. This calls for a re-org at the typical tech organization that supports an old-guard business. The re-org is a challenge for large tech organizations that are often split down the middle in the form of a change organization and a run organization.

This talk (closing keynote at DevOpsDays Singapore 2017) explores the challenge and describes how it being addressed at some companies.
