Scrum.org and DevOps Institute Partner to Transform IT Organizations with ScrumOps

New Holistic Approach to Modern IT to be Presented at DevOps Connect Event in Dallas

Boston and Boca Raton, Fla.– April 4, 2017 Scrum.org, the mission-based organization dedicated to improving the profession of software delivery through training, certification, assessments, tools, processes and community, and the DevOps Institute (DOI), the global learning community around emerging DevOps practices that delivers enterprise-level DevOps training and certification, today announced a strategic partnership. The initiative will help IT organizations change the way they approach software product delivery with a collective approach known as ScrumOps.

Don’t believe the myth. DevOps and Scrum are not mutually exclusive and can work together to deliver a holistic model for modern IT. ScrumOps can be applied to any IT organization to aid in continuously delivering secure, working software while accurately measuring success.

To learn more, join Scrum.org CEO Dave West and DevOps Institute CEO Jayne Groll at DevOps Connect: Jenkins Days & Scrum Days on April 26, 2017 in Dallas for a joint session:

Topic: Making of a 21st Century Product Delivery Organization: Bringing Together Scrum, Agile and DevOps
Overview: This workshop introduces a holistic approach to modern IT that draws on Scrum and DevOps to define a responsive IT organization that is inclusive of development, infrastructure, support, security, service management, supplier management and the business. At the end of the workshop, you will have a starting model that can be applied to your IT organization.
Location: Junior Ballroom Section B1, Irving Convention Center
Time: Wednesday, April 26, 1:45pm - 4:45pm

“Transforming into a next-generation, agile IT organization may be easier than many people think,” said Dave West, CEO, Scrum.org. “Scrum empowers teams and provides a lightweight framework for getting work done and DevOps provides the automation, systems thinking and lean practices to deliver and support the work. By bringing the Scrum and DevOps communities and ideas together across the IT organization, we end up with a solution that enables IT teams to understand user needs, build, deploy and secure those systems, manage them over time and keep improving.”

“When we bring the practices and ideologies of Scrum and DevOps together, we can truly shape the end-to-end IT organization,” said Jayne Groll, CEO, DevOps Institute. “This new model shows how business, development, delivery, security and operations fit together to support continuous value in a governed way.”

In addition to the session, Scrum.org and the DevOps Institute have agreed to collaborate on ongoing content, training and resources over the coming months. Read more from Scrum.org and the DevOps Institute.
