Puppetize Digital Kicks Off With Keynote on Driving DevOps Success through Automation

DevOps and IT leaders gather to share best practices for automation, compliance, self-service environments and more

PORTLAND, Ore., Nov. 19, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Puppet, the industry standard for infrastructure automation, today kicked off Puppetize Digital, the virtual version of its annual community and user conference featuring an impressive list of IT experts, industry leaders and DevOps champions. The event will take place across three regions so attendees can join the time zone most convenient for them: Sydney (AEDT), London (GMT), and San Francisco (PST).

During the event, attendees will hear from Puppet CEO Yvonne Wassenaar, CTO Abby Kearns and CTO Deepak Giridharagopal who will discuss how customers are driving successful business outcomes through automation in the cloud, when scaling DevOps, and when solving compliance challenges with current and future Puppet offerings.

Puppetize Digital keynotes will build on key announcements made by the company over the last few months, including:

  • The Puppet Enterprise Platform, an integrated automation platform that serves as a jumping off point for automating everything from simple tasks, complex systems both on-prem and in the cloud, and workflows that have sprung up in cloud-native environments. Puppet Enterprise Platform offers three types of automation: task-driven orchestration (Puppet Connect and Bolt), model-driven infrastructure as code (Puppet Enterprise) and application programming interface (API) event-driven workflows (Relay by Puppet).
  • Puppet Connect, unveiled earlier this week, empowers cloud, application and platform teams to codify and scale their unique automation expertise by publishing and sharing content for self-service use by others within their organization.
  • Puppet Comply, a new product built to work with Puppet Enterprise, is aimed at automating and enforcing policy as code at scale.
