The last 18 months have been defining period for DevOps and the Fast IT landscape, with the utility and value of the DevOps workflow now understood and recognised by the majority of IT leaders responsible for optimising the efficiency of IT systems, and adoption booming.

The spinal properties of DevOps - speed, agility, teamwork and economies of scale – make this practice and culture a dream for every professional involved in application development and delivery, software updates and infrastructure change. In 2018 the DevOps methodology has begun to transcend software development and delivery with the framework becoming a watertight enabler for IT teams building, developing and operating rapidly-changing resilient systems at scale.

No surprises then that both enterprise and service providers are increasingly relying on DevOps and supporting technology to boost their competitive edge and enhance offerings.

The container landscape is booming like never before across EMEA. In fact, Gartner anticipates that by the end of 2018, 50% of enterprises will be running containers in their production environments- a massively stark difference from even 12 months ago.

DevOps Live is officially partnered by Docker and, for 2019, we are delighted to host the Cloud Native Computing Foundation as premier sponsors. These unique relationships with two true pioneers in the container ecosystem make DevOps Live a “must attend” for any software lifecycle specialist and decision maker involved with the production of cloud native and/or containerised applications; offering our audience hands on time with the latest releases and developments across the container landscapes most used and prevalent platforms including Kubernetes, Docker Swarm and Prometheus.

DevOps Live with Docker, is the largest and most comprehensive gathering of DevOps specialists and influencers in the UK.
Joined by over 5500+ DevOps decision makers, from 53 countries, and 50+ DevOps solution providers at 2018’s event, DevOps Live has cemented its place as the home of progressive DevOps for the EMEA community.
