CTO Peer Group

 ABOUT THIS GROUP:

This peer-to-peer group is for engineering executives to connect and have honest and insightful discussions on the challenges and opportunities of leading technology organizations. The goal of this time is to get out of the office and connect with others just like you who are facing similar challenges. This session is for MassTLC members that are CTOs of technology companies only. 


ABOUT THIS SESSION:

Many SaaS companies have embraced a DevOps culture. Some have had the luxury of starting out with such a model. Others have made the transition from a more traditional Engineering and Ops culture to DevOps. Many others would like to transition to such a model or are in the process of doing so. In this session, we would like to learn from your experiences, challenges, and lessons in transitioning to DevOps.

Questions such as:
How do you define DevOps in your organization?
Did you start with DevOps? Did you make the transition? Are you planning to?
Did you make a transition with a live, revenue generating SaaS product?
Did you transition the whole organization, or did you start with a smaller or newer service?
What changes did you make to your architecture and organization to effectively transition?

This topic should resonate with companies who want to embrace a DevOps culture, or have made the transition from a more traditional Engineering and Ops model. We will setup the problem and talk about some challenges, recommendations and experience in going through the transition.
