"This year, we are focusing on many of the challenges that technology leaders face as they transform how work is done, often facing obstacles outside of Dev and Ops. These include project management and funding models, product management, compliance officers and regulators. It's an exciting time to be a part of this movement as we broaden our sessions to focus on what leaders most need to know to succeed."

Through keynotes, breakout sessions, collaborative workshops and space to interact within an expo hall, attendees gain insights into the evolving technical and architectural practices and the methods needed to lead widespread change efforts in large organizations.
