The benefits of DevSecOps for software development are well established. Teams that practice DevSecOps produce more resilient, secure, and easier-to-maintain software, and they experience less stress and tend to be happier. But while we’ve modernized and improved how we build customer facing products, the inside of the house has largely been left behind.
Many organizations are not satisfied with the state of their internal systems and tools. Without robust internal technology capabilities, business operations across marketing, sales, customer success, legal, finance and HR all suffer. What makes this more challenging is many internal technology teams report to a non-technical leader, often a CFO, who doesn’t know about DevOps or how to fix what they perceive as a problem with IT.
In this session, Adrienne Shulman discusses the similarities between customer facing software development and operational IT, how to incorporate DevSecOps practices into IT, and how to communicate the value of DevSecOps to non-technical leaders.
1. Internal IT might be comprised of mostly low code and SaaS systems today, but it suffers the same challenges as customer-facing product development and can benefit from DevSecOps.
2. Ideas for incorporating DevSecOps practices into operational IT, including platforms like Salesforce, Workday, Netsuite, ServiceNow and others.
3. Advice for communicating the value of DevSecOps to non-technical leaders
