Using DevOps to Drive Organizational Agility and Innovation | ChefConf 2016

Industry analyst Ben Kepes provides insights on how integrating DevOps practices enables organizations to deliver business outcomes more rapidly.

He explains how agility can be further enhanced by a heterogeneous development environment, automation tools, and a cloud infrastructure. He ends by taking a look at the current and future state of DevOps and recommends steps an organization can take to become more agile.
