Developers and management can seem at cross purposes when one group looks at technologies and the other looks at organizational issues. Both groups are looking for ways to deliver value faster, leaner, and at less cost. There are technological avenues for accomplishing these goals, including DevOps and serverless architectures. However, these approaches also have organizational implications, as they change the nature and content of communication between teams. In this session, we cover the technology benefits and organizational transformations involved in DevOps and serverless architectures.
This session is part of the re:Invent Developer Community Day, six community-led sessions where AWS enthusiasts share technical insights on trending topics based on first-hand experiences and knowledge shared within local AWS communities.

But building a mature DevOps capability doesn’t happen overnight. Creating and implementing testing, compliance, and security automation frameworks requires time and organizational and process changes. Financial institutions are addressing this challenge by using AWS Service Catalog to help bridge the gap between traditional operations and true DevOps.
