Why “IT Ops Ready”
In April 2020, just as the realities of a global pandemic hit us, BigPanda hosted a virtual summit. The theme: “IT Ops from home.” The topic resonated since most organizations were suddenly running their NOC from their remote sites. Speakers shared tales from their organizations, along with best practices other IT Ops, DevOps and SRE professionals could use to run IT Ops from home effectively. As we head into last quarter of the year, surrounded by uncertainty, it felt right to make the theme for the upcoming virtual conference “IT Ops Ready.” You are the people who have to be ready for anything and we want to make sure every session helps answer questions you might be asking:
- What did other teams do to prepare for the last six months of disruptions?
- What technologies or capabilities are critical to not just survive but thrive in these disruptive times?
- How are other teams preparing their roadmaps for 2021?
