In this DevOps for the Agile Enterprise training course, you’ll gain an understanding of the role of DevOps in a Scaled Agile organization. Unlike other training that focuses only 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 fullspectrum 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.


Objectives:

  • Understand prevailing industry definitions of DevOps
  • Define DevOps in the context of your enterprise
  • Describe the benefits of DevOps and the metrics used to measure them
  • Describe the 5 stages of the deployment pipeline
  • Understand how DevOps and Agile work together to achieve continuous delivery
  • Understand key DevOps roles and responsibilities
  • Identify deployment challenges and opportunities in your environment
  • Build and prioritize a DevOps transformation backlog
  • Launch a DevOps action plan that extends the benefits of Agile
