DevOps–automate now or pay later

Part of the For Cloud Professionals podcast series

A declarative (vs. imperative) approach to DevOps can pay off handsomely with faster insights that help you become more agile, but there are some potential pitfalls to avoid. So, its critical to have a well-thought-out strategy going in.

DevOps: Enable better insights, faster

Join host David Linthicum and guest Lori MacVittie as they discuss the pros and cons about the different approaches to DevOps in the network and the impact that a declarative (automated) vs. imperative (manual) methodology can have on an organization’s speed and ability to deliver.  Learn how companies should think strategically, prioritize, and attain talent as they look to shift to a more agile approach to DevOps.

You need to standardize and get your platforms in order, understand how you are going to do it first—to actually have a strategy for what you are going to do first, how you are going to do go about it.

Lori MacVittie is a subject matter expert for F5 Networks on cloud computing, cloud and application security, devops and application delivery. MacVittie has extensive development and technical architecture experience in both high-tech and enterprise organizations, in addition to network and systems administration expertise.
