Highlights of the Discussion

  • How the adoption of DevOps and SRE is helping in the current scenario for organizations to handle this decentralized kind of work?
  • What about the security part and what are the current challenges which the practitioners are facing?
  • How has the adoption of DevOps helped the practitioners during this phase?
  • In the current scenario, cloud adoption is increasing, so how to use it and whether the practitioners are really getting into the right knowledge of cloud?
  • As lots of people are taking the cloud route, so as practitioners and leaders what should they do differently, to be able to adopt it properly, and make sure it is not creating a cost-intensive affair?
  • From the system integrator working environments into one common CI/CD pipeline, where multiple vendors and the organization's any customer is coming together, will the practices help in achieving them?

  • How to take care of observability and monitoring from the security aspect?
  • How do the leaders get their people to experiment more with how Azure helps in trying out things and be ready for the weaknesses?
