Turn Chaos into Payoff: Future-Proofing DevOps Strategies with VSM

Software quality should maximize the value of your strategy—not put it at risk. But the drive to transform forces companies to release faster while still needing to deliver quality products that attract customers and gain market share. Consequently, quality is often sacrificed to increase delivery velocity, and alignment between business and development is lost.

In this session, Michael O’Rourke will explain how AI delivers better quality, how analytics are key differentiators for VSM and optimizing your DevOps strategies, and how you can get it right the first time with fewer incidents that disrupt your business.

Join this session to learn how to:

  • Prevent poor DevOps strategies from compromising quality
  • Connect business and strategy upfront
  • Make work visible to analyze and act in real time
