In this tech talk, we'll teach you how to convert the knowledge from subject matter experts across your business into automated DevOps guardrails to create the positive feedback loop we call "patterns of efficiency". Our experts will share actionable advice for leaders from IT as well as Finance, Compliance, and Security departments. Join us and learn how to implement "Enterprise DevOps" in your organization through building a culture of inclusion, common sense, and continuous improvement.

Learning Objectives:

  • See specific "patterns of efficiency" being used by the most advanced AWS customers
  • Hear actionable advice from our DevOps experts for creating inclusive partnerships across departments
  • Learn which new AWS services and management tools can make your "Enterprise DevOps" initiative more successful
