As you talk to people at this conference you'll find that the majority of attendees are technology focused. But the reality is that many other people in your company are probably doing 'ops', although you (and probably they) may not know it. If devops is truly about breaking down silos then we owe it to ourselves, our teams and our users to look further afield. This Ignite talk will introduce some of the lesser-known ops teams at Atlassian, why they're important and suggest how we can involve them in the ideals and technologies of devops.
