DevOps will have the greatest impact on the IT organization now and in the next ten years.

IT leaders look to the Dev team to streamline, accelerate, and upskill the workforce in the face of growing demands, complexities, and threats from outside the organization. Meanwhile, the C-Suite is hoping DevOps can figure out a way to reduce or remove IT costs while distributing more resilience for the organizational infrastructure. It feels a bit like a game of tug of war.

Topics Include:
The implications for products, platforms, and upcoming agile DevOps initiatives
Debating the realities and pitfalls of NoOps and low code/no code
The hidden dangers that can arise when inclusivity and accessibility are omitted from dev processes

How to Rescue a Struggling DevSecOps Program

Presented by: Larry Maccherone, Dev[Sec]Ops Transformation Architect, Contrast Security

The cultural differences between dev and security teams persist to this day – fast vs. slow, risk-hungry vs. risk-averse, focused on profits vs. focused cost avoidance, etc. Meanwhile, the increasing use of open-source code libraries and cloud-native applications are creating new cybersecurity threats, pressing DevSecOps teams to find new AppSec solutions, better observability, and fresh ways of working together.

In this keynote session, learn how to spot the red flags of a struggling program; learn what tools and technologies can make the DevSecOps process easier for the entire team; and how IT executives can lead a DevSecOps team ready to handle both the risk of cyberattacks and the risk of slow-release cycles.

If you ask some, low code is the future of code – except when it isn’t.

We’ll talk through some of the biggest –and most unexpected—pitfalls of the low code/no code space and what you can do to mitigate or avoid completely.
