How Southwest Airlines Removed Barriers to Accelerate Innovation
IT and Software Development leaders are looking for ways to create strategies and remove barriers that will let their teams move faster and more efficiently. But corporate compliance policies, IT staff constraint, and outdated, redundant processes can slow workflows and software release times, inhibiting a company’s ability to innovate faster. In this workshop, you’ll learn more about a DevOps platform that provides best practices for breaking down barriers between developers, operations, and security teams; creating an environment for businesses to realize faster resolution of problems and delivery of features, more productive teams and stable operating environments, improved communication and collaboration, and more time to innovate.
The workshop will kick off with short overviews of DevOps from Flux7 and AWS, then feature a presentation from Southwest Airlines on the results that they have achieved by implementing automation processes on AWS. The afternoon sessions will feature 3 hands-on labs that will demonstrate the user experience of using self-service IT to deploy services, deploying code and testing with CI/CD pipelines, and a look under the hood in how the platform is setup to balance security constraints with flexibility.
There will be several Q&A sessions throughout the day, giving attendees the opportunity to “ask the experts” about their own specific use cases. IT and dev team leaders that are looking for a real solution for IT modernization that will produce near-immediate results should plan on attending and bringing members of their team for the hands-on lab portion of the workshop. AWS will provide temporary accounts for each lab participant to use during the sessions.
NOTE: This is a LIVE in-person event ONLY. Due to the material and the experiential nature of the workshop, we will not be able to provide slides, and this workshop will not be broadcast.
