From 6 Months Waterfall to 1h Code
In 2011, 2 major releases were delivered on premise enterprise software. Market, technology and customer requirements forced the company’s change in order to remain competitive.
Now – in 2017 – Dynatrace is deploying and providing feature releases every 2 weeks for both on premise and SaaS-based offering. The company deploys 170 SaaS production changes per day and has a DevOps pipeline that allows the company to deploy a code change within 1h if necessary.
To increase quality, Dynatrace built and provides a DevOps pipeline that currently executes 31000 Unit & Integration Tests per Hour as well as 60h UI Tests per Build. The company’s application teams are responsible end-to-end for their features and use production monitoring to validate their deployments which allows them to find 93% of bugs in production before it impacts the end users.
In this session it is explained how this transformation worked from both “Top Down” as well as “Bottom Up” in the organization. A key component was the 4 people strong DevOps Team who developed and “sell” their DevOps Pipeline to the globally distributed application teams. This session will give insights into how the pipeline enables application teams to design, code, test and run a new feature for the user base.
This session will also talk about the “dark moments” as change is never without friction. Both internally as well as with customers who also had to get used to more rapid changes.
