Sprinting for Success: Digital Transformation through Agile and DevOps

Webcast On-Demand

Verizon is not a startup that can simply copy and apply what works well for Uber, Facebook and other “Unicorn-Companies.” They are challenged by complex IT and business infrastructure accumulated over decades. Yet they wanted to streamline operations, optimize business output and deliver more useful products faster to their consumers.

Verizon’s journey started back in 2011 by identifying Technical Debt, Business Debt and Organizational Rust. Now in 2016, after several years of streamlining their development and IT organization, they run every single project using a “Verizon agile,” DevOps approach.

Download this webinar to hear, Assoc. Director at Verizon Enterprise Solutions, Nita Awatramani, share Verizon’s amazing digital transformation journey. Learn how they re-invented the way they develop, deploy and run their software supporting their business to remain competitive, profitable and relevant, in an era of increasing customer expectations.

Discover how Verizon successfully:

  • Decreased the number of apps they support by 40%
  • Reduced IT complexity by consolidating from 13 to 5 data centers
  • Increased their virtual server footprint 66% while reducing hardware footprint 25%
  • Implemented a “level-up” mind set for team members through metrics-driven continuous delivery

Nita is joined by Andreas Grabner, Performance Advocate at Dynatrace who will support why monitoring, application and end user metrics have to be a key part of your own transformation!
