Fast response to changing markets, flexible automation and cross organizational integration are the key features for the industrial landscape of the future.
I’ve first learned about DevOps about 2 years ago. With my background of industrial automation I felt somehow as a stranger while attending my first DevOps conference. After a while it dawned on me that DevOps can solve many problems in my working area.
This talk is about what I’ve learned from DevOps. I will describe common problems and pitfalls that arise from cross organizational scaling of automation and give a short overview of the requirements for a software to support agile management of production environments.
