TAG DevOps Mission Statement
Information Technology organizations, systems integrators, and software providers have never had so many opportunities for innovation nor faced so many challenges in keeping pace with stakeholder and customer demands and staying ahead of the competition. The complexity of designing, developing, testing, and continuously delivering software, coupled with efficiently operating modern systems and applications creates many barriers to success. DevOps addresses this by promoting active communication and collaboration between software developers and other information technology professionals as well as automating the process of software delivery and infrastructure management.
The mission of the TAG DevOps society is to build a community of practitioners, educators, and policymakers to engage in an ongoing discussion of the broad array of DevOps topics. Through regularly held meetings, events, and presentations, we address topics of interest for those designing, developing, and delivering modern software for the Cloud, Mobility, IoT, the Industrial Internet, and Machine Learning.
Building a DevOps Culture | Transforming IT Delivery to Enhance the Business
The DevOps Society of TAG have planned a three-part series centered on the culture of DevOps. Each part focuses on the key components that drive a DevOps Culture: People, process and technology.
As market conditions evolve, leaders must embrace new ways of delivering IT solutions to support their businesses. DevOps focuses on transforming your organization into a culture where emphasis is placed on communication and collaboration for both software delivery and infrastructure professionals, while automating the processes of software delivery and infrastructure changes to enhance business capabilities.
As an outcome of these series, you will hear perspectives from DevOps professionals on building a DevOps culture.
April 25 - 5:30 – 7:30 pm
In past years, software developers and infrastructure professionals worked in silos. This model often resulted in project delays, slower deployments, higher operating costs, increased software defects, and finger pointing. Breaking the silos becomes key to streamlining the delivery process, reducing the defects, and everyone owning the product.
DevOps addresses this by creating a methodology that stresses communications and shared ownership between software delivery and infrastructure. How do you achieve communication? Shared ownership? Collaboration?
Join us for “The People Driving Cultural Change” for this first of three in a series: Building a DevOps Culture.
Our panelists will share their perspectives on the people who drive the cultural change and to successfully change the culture.
DevOps: The Process Behind the Cultural Change
August 17 - 5:30 – 7:30 pm
As the second installment in our series, changing the culture must be followed by processes that support it. DevOps stresses repeatable processes with strong governance practices, and then automating those processes. This methodology enables teams to operative at a scale that supports the enterprise and enables innovation through managing or eliminating the daily operation tasks that tend to drag down the operational aspects of the team. What are some of the key processes to develop? Where do you start with automation? How much governance is the right amount?

Our panelists will share their perspectives on the process behind this cultural change.
DevOps: The Technology of a Successful DevOps Culture Shift
October 17 - 5:30 – 7:30 pm
Once you have changed the culture and have put processes to enable and empower your teams, technology comes to automate, report, and even operate the environment. To achieve a strong repeatable and automated process, leaders must consider the appropriate technologies to support the DevOps strategy. Use and adoption of these technologies is vital to enable a strong DevOps culture. But there are so many to choose from. How do leaders prioritize technology adoptions? How do you resolve those “religious” debates within and between your teams? How do you choose the tools that will empower your teams?
Join us for “The Technology of a Successful DevOps Culture Change” for the final in a three-part series: Building a DevOps Culture.
Our panelists will share their perspectives on the technology of a successful DevOps culture shift.
