The 2020 State of DevOps Report already showed how developer self-service is highly correlated with an advanced DevOps setup. In the latest 2021 report, the data doubles down on this trend. Platform teams that drive self-service capabilities throughout the organization are identified as a key element to success. 

Nigel will present Puppet findings and discuss:

  • Why enterprises are held back from evolving to the highest DevOps levels by organizational structure and dynamics.
  • Why highly evolved firms use platform teams as the most effective way to manage team cognitive load at scale.
  • How great platform teams scale out the benefits of DevOps initiatives.

After a 30 minutes talk, there will be 15 minutes for Q&A. We’d like to encourage you to submit your questions in advance.

A recording of the webinar and related materials will be shared with webinar attendees afterwards.

Audience - who should join?

DevOps Engineers, Platform Engineers, Site Reliability Engineers, System Engineers, Infrastructure Kubernetes Administrators, Technical Architects, Application Developers with an affinity with DevOps and Technical Management.
