The Rewards of #DevOps | @DevOpsSummit #APM #ContinuousDelivery

How to Reap the Rewards of DevOps: One Bank's Story By Gottfried Sehringer There’s no shortage of DevOps stories, but every so often one blows me away, like the one I heard last week at the Gartner Symposium in Barcelona. Societe Generale, one of the world’s largest banks with almost 150,000 employees in over 50 countries, is a story about a broad ranging, comprehensive, hugely successful transformation that provides a model for other large organizations wanting to realize the benefits of DevOps and Continuous Delivery.
