April 5, 2018 – April 5, 2018 CONVENE AT 117 WEST 46TH STREET
In 2018, we are launching DevOps Day NY to provide an additional platform for IT leaders to debate and strategize. By working with our Membership and Advisory Board, we identified a significant need for an event that facilitates high-level DevOps discussion.
IT has evolved from a service provider to a business partner. Effective collaboration across business functions has never been more vital, and IT is leading the charge.
DevOps has been hailed as a pillar of modern IT infrastructure. This process has emerged from the growing need to manage modern, cloud-based infrastructure.
Essentially DevOps refers to a set of practices to encourage the collaboration between software developers and IT professionals. In traditional firms, these functions are kept separate. This process also enables the automation of software delivery and infrastructure changes.
DevOps Day NY is your chance to meet with other IT leaders from across the Tri-State area, in an intimate setting. With high-level content, disruptive solution providers, and enhanced networking opportunities, this one-day event promises to provide you with the latest IT strategies and technologies to take back to your business.
This is not just another “DevOps” event. Spaces are reserved for the best in the business. Apply to attend here!
