In this two-day course, you’ll gain an understanding of the role of DevOps in an Agile organization. Unlike other training that focuses only on the mechanics of DevOps, ICON’s DevOps for the Agile Enterprise course explores the role of DevOps in the context of the entire IT value stream, and prepares you to successfully plan and implement DevOps capabilities that significantly extend the benefits of Agile transformations. This includes understanding the full-spectrum software delivery ecosystem, where Agile transformations typically are and are not effective; how Agile and DevOps are “better together;” and what people, processes, and technology must be aligned throughout the organization, to achieve true enterprise agility.
