IT Revolution and Premier Sponsor HPE Software are excited to present the inaugural DOES16 London event. As a vendor-neutral conference, DevOps Enterprise Summit curates stories from the enterprise point-of-view. Most of the presentations follow a very specific "experience report" structure—each speaker describes their organization and their industry, the business problem they faced, where they started their transformation, what they did, and the business outcomes. It's a simple yet powerful format that reveals solutions to shared problems and new practices that can be used in other business contexts.
IT Revolution assembles technology leaders and practitioners through publishing, events, and research. Our goal is to elevate the state of technology work, quantify the economic and human costs associated with suboptimal IT performance, and to improve the lives of one million IT professionals by 2017.
