Abstract

The key concepts in DevOps are CALM: Culture, Automation, Lean, and Measurement. How does an architect support the transformation to DevOps in the four CALM areas?

  • Culture: Remove silos, reduce fear of making mistakes, and encourage learning and experimentation.
  • Automation: Change the architecture to support dynamic infrastructure, automated deployments, and automated tests.
  • Lean: Structure capabilities and features to deliver higher value in smaller batch sizes.
  • Measurement: Architect to expose, aggregate, and route the right data for monitoring, analysis, and trending.

In this presentation, we'll talk about patterns, interactions, and behavior that architects will want to consider to keep CALM in the face of DevOps.
