Best Practices for Controlling Change When Using DevOps

Extending the benefits of agile development without compromising quality

Neebula Systems and dbMaestro announce a free webinar on January 23 that will provide advice on best practices for managing change when applying DevOps concepts and agile development methodologies to rapidly develop, test and deploy applications.

"We'll provide tips to ensure that rapid application iteration does not come at the expense of availability or performance, which can turn DevOps into Dev-Oops," said Ariel Gordon, co-founder and vice president of products at Neebula. "We'll show how combining development and operations, along with automation can deliver better, faster IT services."

The webinar will show how to take advantage of faster DevOps concepts while applying automation to better control changes and further improve productivity. The webinar will cover:

  • Understanding the inter-relationships of IT infrastructure and applications;
  • Reducing risk with change policy enforcement and change impact analysis;
  • Utilizing technology, especially automation tools, in the increasingly dynamic IT infrastructure.
