10:35 AM – 11:00 AM Topic: How to Transition from “Projects to Product”

Conway’s law states that “Any organization that designs a system will produce a design whose structure is a copy of the organization’s communication structure”. As organizations are starting to move from a Project based delivery to a Product based delivery, there are many changes which they need to make across organization structure, funding process, work intake process, work prioritization, KPI & Metrics, in order to reap the benefits of a product based organization.

In this Session, the Capgemini team will cover the following:

  • How to carve out the Business Value Stream and Products
  • How to implement a Lean Portfolio Management for Funding & Governance
  • How to Maximize flow and remove frictions through delivery lifecycle by adopting “pull” principles by moving work to the people and maintaining persistent teams
  • How to Realize Business Value by applying an MVP mindset that encourages quick and small value delivery via a data-driven, experiment-centric view.

11:00 AM – 12:00 PM Topic: Is Your DevOps Ready for the Cloud?

With Enterprises moving from monoliths and adopting containers for their cloud-native microservices initiatives, one of the main things which the development and operations teams have to deal with is to have a container based CICD Pipeline for code propagation, container-based security, monitoring and automated deployment to their public or private cloud. While Cloud Providers (AWS, Azure and GCP) have their own set of DevOps Services offering, some of these services are not easy to be consumed readily and for some, the developers and operations team want to have their own ways/tools to perform a certain function.
In this talk, the Capgemini team would cover the best practices of standing up a CICD Pipeline for container based microservices on Cloud

01:00 PM – 01:45 PM Topic: “You Build it, You Secure It”

With So many Security breaches happening across all kinds of Enterprises, be it a Target or Equifax or very Recently @ CapitalOne, SecOps or rather DevSecOps has become one of the most sought-after topics for not only the Infosec team but also the folks running the DevOps COE. With workloads spanning from On-premise to Cloud to hyper-converged, security has become a prime consideration while implementing a CICD Pipeline. If the security requirements are not handled properly, it can slow down the pipeline and lengthen the time to market.
In this Session, we will cover the key security automation integration points in the CICD pipeline and talk about how to build security into your process, culture, and toolchain.
