    DevOps Lessons from Toyota to Deming: What I Learned Evaluating 3000 Organizations

    In 2016, I studied the patterns and practices exhibited by 3000 high-performance software development organizations, and I'm coming to London to share the results.
    Software development teams and their DevOps practices are consuming BILLIONS of open source and third-party components. The good news: they are accelerating time to market. The bad news: 1 in 17 components they are using include known security, license and architectural defects. Ugh.
    This session aims to enlighten DevOps professionals, enterprise architects, and IT leaders by sharing results from the 2016 State of the Software Supply Chain Report -- a blend of public and proprietary data with expert research and analysis.

    Attend this session and leverage the insights to understand how your organization’s DevOps practices compare to others. We'll share the industry benchmarks to take back and discuss with your DevOps, architecture, and application security teams.
