Can’t-miss DevOps and Service Management experiences at World of Watson

IBM World of Watson 2016 is the ultimate data and analytics conference. Celebrating the rise of cognitive computing, it showcases how new technical approaches are changing the way people and machines work together.

Throughout the week, you’ll have opportunities to network with 20,000 peers and experts, gain valuable skills from more than 200 hands-on labs and attend 1,500+ breakout sessions. It’s going to be big.

If you’re interested in DevOps, World of Watson offers a wealth of learning and hands-on opportunities. Once the domain of startups, DevOps is being embraced in the C-suite at large organizations  to transform the way they do digital business innovation. A DevOps approach helps teams deliver quality applications faster and better aligned to customer needs.

IBM knows DevOps. We provide methodologies, reference architectures, and an open toolchain to get clients started fast—and scaling successfully. IBM offers market-leading tools to automate application testing, deployment and performance management to drive big productivity gains.

We’re eager to help you embrace DevOps for public, private and hybrid cloud environments. Want to dive deeper? I highly recommend the following World of Watson sessions.  Click each link for more information and add to your personalized agenda.

Explore more in the expo

Beyond DevOps, the IBM Cloud expo will be in full force with immersive experiences that attract both sides of the brain. IBM Cloud and IBM Cloud Integration are critical to this transformation and will be featured in the Cognitive Concourse.

Cloud Integration will have live demos available, including one navigating Slack, the collaboration platform that rapidly grew to serve more than three million users in under three years.

Remember Jackson? Meet the experts behind the cognitive capabilities that helped Jackson succeed.

Lastly, hear stories of how IBM Cloud and IBM Bluemix are changing the status quo across industries, straight from the game-changers themselves. Live activities will be available so you can get hands-on and see how the offerings can help your business.

If you have any questions, just ask Watson what’s going in the Engagement Zone, like Cognitive VR perhaps?

DevOps: Five things to achieve continuous software delivery

Be gone, monolithic applications with infrequent update cycles. Your era is over, and the IT landscape can no longer be characterized by you. DevOps is one major reason why this is true. The tech world has shifted. Even delivery has shifted from updates that occurred once or twice a year for systems of record applications […]

Bridging two countries with hybrid cloud

When I think of hybrid cloud, I think of building a bridge between two countries. I like analogies. Analogies are like pictures, they explain a lot. Just like a bridge connects those two countries, hybrid cloud connects two similar but different worlds (for example, private and public clouds). If you are going to build a […]

Collaboration improves agile development

There is increasing evidence that collaborative agile teams perform better. Anything an agile team can do to collaborate with the other teams that are involved in a project—testing, business, release and deployment, operations, mainframe and other waterfall teams—will help to improve results. At Agile2015, I was reminded of how important this is when I heard […]
