Executive Session: DevOps in the Public Sector - USA

Overcoming challenges and removing barriers between development and delivery for digital transformation

Wednesday, March 3, 2021 (Start: 12.00pm ET / 9.00am PT)

Agenda Overview:

DevOps have continued to increase in importance within the public sector – with much of that importance related to the need to migrate applications to cloud-based solutions. How is it impacting the public sector in the long-run and what do you need to know

There are a multitude of benefits to leveraging DevOps; from stronger collaboration and teamwork, to improved transparency, increased productivity and, best of all, better quality of products and deliverables.  

DevOps has been defined as an agile relationship between Development and IT Operations. The goal of DevOps being to change and improve that relationship by advocating better communication and collaboration between two business units. While implementing DevOps in large organizations, like the Public Sector, can be challenging considering departmental silos, communication, and collaboration requirements; DevOps requires change and finding the ability to let go of the status quo and build a brand new paradigm 

Public Sector Network’s DevOps in the Public Sector Virtual Event will bring a broad group of executives and leaders to the table to share a diverse range of ideas and perspectives, that focus on a common mission; a smarter, more agile, and an ultimately more effective public sector.
