As his blog says, Sanjeev Sharma is a DevOps, Mobile, Agile Transformation, ALM SME and Evangelist. He's also a Tech Sales Specialist, Solution Architect, DevOps SME, Agile Evangelist, Rational Software SME, IBMer, Inventor, Innovator, Blogger... and airline mile junkie. More importantly, however: he is also very active on twitter and other social sites like slideshare where he's helping others by sharing his experience and knowledge for everyone's benefit.
Following is his Slideshare deck on the session topic "DevOps for Mobile Apps" that he and Leigh Williamson, IBM Distinguished Engineer, Rational CTO Team delivered at IBM Innovate last month:
But don't stop there... Sanjeev is also a prolific blogger on the topic of DevOps. Check out his relevant posts below:

DevOps helps establish easier, quicker handoffs from planning and development to deployment and other siloed areas. In this complimentary series of webcasts, we’ll discuss this collaborative approach for continuous software delivery, and how IBM integrated development and operations tools and processes can help optimize the entire lifecycle of your applications. Join us to learn about the DevOps architecture and how the IBM suite of development and operations products reduce the hops and stops on the continuous track of software delivery with end-to-end collaborative software innovation.
With the DevOps approach, organizations can:

August 7: IBM DevOps Solution: Accelerating the delivery of multiplatform applications
Mobile, social, big data and cloud technologies are driving the demand for new, faster and more frequent approaches to software delivery across all platforms, middleware and devices. The goal is to push out significantly more features in each release and get more releases out the door with confidence, while maintaining compliance and quality. Amid these demands and goals are some common problems – or gaps– with software delivery that need to be mitigated.
In this session, IBM executives will discuss how IBM DevOps solution addresses culture, process and tools integration across the software delivery lifecycle - spanning distributed and mainframe environments. They will provide updates on the latest IBM System z tools and middleware offerings, and introduce the recent IBM acquisition of UrbanCode.
August 14: IBM DevOps Solution: Continuous business planning to get cost out and agility in
Do you know what you have, what it is worth to your business and what that return is costing you? Are you able to respond to business needs and customer demand in a timely manner while also managing the cost to deliver that value? In this webcast, you’ll learn about actionable strategies and techniques to get more out of your existing investments. Our experts will discuss how you can transform your application portfolio to reduce maintenance and development lifecycle costs and improve the decisions you make about technology investments.
September 4: IBM DevOps Solution: Collaborative development to spark innovation and integration among teams
Application development cannot be sustained in disjointed silos. New mobile, social, big data and analytics projects demand a development process that is fast, integrated, creative and affordable. Your teams need to work closely with one another, regardless of the deployment platform used to run the components of those applications. The needs of your business change quickly, too, making it necessary to re-prioritize work quickly and shift resources to different projects efficiently. With advanced, productive and unified development environments and middleware from Rational and CICS, you can apply talent across boundaries and keep the focus on innovation and high-quality code development and test.
September 11: IBM DevOps Solution: Continuous testing to save costs and improve application quality
As teams move more quickly to meet customer demands, they need ways to ensure quality while keeping deliveries on time and costs under control. These challenges can be met by automating manual, repetitive tasks, including build, regression testing, integration testing, problem determination and functional validation. Further benefits can be realized by virtualizing services that are external to applications under test. Join us and learn how to get started with automated testing and debugging, as you learn valuable service virtualization techniques.
September 18: IBM DevOps Solution: Continuous release and deployment to compress delivery cycles
Manual processes and efforts to deliver software changes across an enterprise are notoriously risky, costly, and error-prone. Today’s applications are complex, and multi-tiered, where deployment often consists of orchestrated changes to multiple subsystems and can involve multiple teams of specialists, with a shrinking release window. New deployment models and tools have come into play that help streamline collaboration between teams, standardize and automate repeatable tasks, thereby increasing deployment quality and repeatability while reducing risk and cost. This new generation of release, deployment and provisioning tools helps you improve your processes today, while positioning you for an easy jump to next-generation systems management in the future, saving days or even weeks of effort for every deployment. Attend this session to discover strategies for application release automation and some new tools that can help.
