You don’t have to look far to see that DevOps adoption is on the rise. A recent study by InteropITX indicated that 80% of organizations are planning DevOps investments, and that those diving in are realizing significant operational and financial benefits. It’s not hard to understand why.

In this increasingly digital age, companies must constantly evolve to keep up with consumer demand and purchasing habits. This means developing software faster than ever before. Yet the margin for error is shrinking and security threats are increasing. How do IT organizations keep up? DevOps.

That’s why I’m excited that BMC (@ControlM_BMC) is a platinum sponsor at the DevOps Enterprise Summit (@DOES_USA) in San Francisco this November. This event brings 1,300+ attendees together for an in-depth look at proven DevOps best practices and the latest innovations. The conference agenda is packed with executives from global companies like Starbucks, Barclays, Verizon and PayPal.

These visionaries will be talking about the tools and methodologies they are leveraging to lead widespread DevOps implementations within their companies – and how they are now developing and deploying software faster than ever. I expect we’ll hear a lot about the evolution of technical and architectural practices, and where we’re headed in the coming months and years.

One thing I know for sure, BMC will be supporting companies throughout their DevOps journey! Control-M is uniquely positioned to help IT organizations left-shift jobs and workload scheduling automation so they can avoid rework and roadblocks in application delivery.
