About the Program

As digital transformation is being adopted, many organizations are moving to DevOps. One of the concepts is the Agile Release Train. The developments are occurring so quickly with DevOps that many feel like they have been run over by the Agile Release Train or they have been left behind.

This high level overview will provide Project Managers some insight into current trends with the continuous integration/continuous deployment/release on demand processes so they can feel comfortable riding the Agile Release train!

Attendees will be able to take back simple and pragmatic steps they can apply immediately in their programs.
