The DevOps Enterprise Summit, London will be packed with keynotes, panels, breakout sessions, and networking events, all geared toward giving IT leaders the tools and practices needed to drive DevOps transformations in large enterprises. The conference has gained the reputation as one of the two premier DevOps events held annually in Europe and in the US. It will feature industry luminaries, such as Gene Kim and John Willis, as well as speakers and DevOps innovators from global market leaders, like Amazon Web Services, Barclays, and Nike.

“I’ve had the privilege of studying leaders who are driving enterprise adoption of DevOps in large, complex organizations,” said Gene Kim, founder of IT Revolution, author, thought leader, and XebiaLabs strategic advisor. “The value they create for their organizations is enormous, but so are the obstacles they must overcome.
