DevOps – the next phase for new adopters

So much has been learned and achieved in the past 5 years of DevOps: culture, organization, process, and technologies. As more traditional, enterprise IT shops start to enter and embrace the many elements of DevOps they are poised to be even more productive.

This talk will look at how Target’s IT organization has embraced the established DevOps patterns to accelerate adoption, demonstrate wins in the early phases of the journey, and discuss ideas on how to move more quickly in large traditional IT. There is an emerging adoption pattern within Target that as new teams join the DevOps journey they are able to move more quickly and become more productive faster taking best practices, learnings, and patterns from the early days of the journey.

Heather Mickman is the leader for the API and Integration team at Target and a DevOps enthusiast. Throughout her career, Heather has continuously embraced hard technology challenges from consulting large Fortune 50 companies on Supply Chain approach, implementing warehouse automation technologies, running large Ops & Support organizations, and establishing enterprise security approaches. She has a passion for technology, building high performing teams, driving a culture of innovation, and having fun along the way. Heather lives in Minneapolis with her 2 sons and 2 dachshunds.
