The IT Paradigm Shift: How IT pros can navigate the current of the DevOps everflow

Planning Information

The duration of this course is 90 minutes.


The paradigm shift from on-prem data centers to cloud services and the move to Agile software development methodologies have been significant and disruptive changes for IT professionals supporting development teams. What makes these changes so consequential is how they touch on all aspects of IT simultaneously and continuously. In the recent past, IT departments’ primary role was to deploy technologies in as non-disruptive a manner as possible, often trading new functionality for stability. Today, customers expect continual enhancements to their software, and long-release intervals are not tolerated. IT experts must completely re-tool their skill set to enable development teams to continuously innovate and deliver value to their customers.

In today’s fast-paced “Everything-as-Code” world, IT pros risk being obviated by the DevOps approach to deployment and testing. This new approach requires everything to be automated, including code testing, cloud deployment, functional and security testing, and solution monitoring.

At this event in our State-of-the-Tech Series, Scott Hooper will discuss this topic and explain how tools, such as Microsoft’s Azure DevOps, can empower IT professionals to develop the automation necessary in today and tomorrow’s world. He will introduce pathways forward for IT pros and related training to build the 2.0 version of your professional life.

Intended Audience

This event is for IT professionals at all levels and for C-suite executives who handle the direction of IT and QA departments.
