IT departments are pushed to deliver new products and services at an increasingly fast pace, and to support ambitious (and ever-changing) business needs.
We’ve still got the same number of hours in the day, so it’s no surprise that many ops teams struggle to meet everyone’s needs for speed, scale and consistency — all at the same time.
Increasing complexity means cross-functional cooperation between ops and dev teams is extremely important; it requires deeper (and earlier) collaboration, standard processes, and shared tools.
We probably don’t have to tell you how much you have to gain from automating configuration and management of your machines. (Or, how much you’ll lose: things like error-prone, one-off scripts; stressful, unexpected outages; weekend and midnight fire drills.)
If you're considering Puppet Enterprise, what's the best way to get buy-in from your manager and dev colleagues? Especially if adopting Puppet means a big shift in how you currently work together?
Attend our webinar on June 23, where we’ll be joined by David Patterson, senior systems engineer at Apollo Global, a provider of higher education programs for adults. David designs and implements automated server deployment processes using Puppet, and will discuss:
- How to approach managers & developers with the information about Puppet that addresses their concerns.
- Why more control, consistency and accountability help everyone sleep better.
- What cats & dogs have to do with DevOps.
- How to lay the groundwork for deploying and successfully implementing Puppet, after you've gotten initial buy-in.
Can’t attend the live webinar? Register anyway, and we’ll send you a recording of it a few days afterward. You can also access our on-demand webinars at any time.
Molly Niendorf is marketing programs manager at Puppet Labs.
