App Dev Manager Reed Robison spotlights the DevOps Fundamentals workshop offered through Microsoft Premier and Unified Support.


Microsoft Premier and Unified Support provides access to a variety of resources to help our customers get the most value out of our technologies.  Among these are instructor-led workshops that help developers build a foundation on key technologies and get hands-on time working through examples and labs.  There is an extensive workshop catalog available to our customers and these engagements are really effective to get a team up to speed and avoid some of the difficult learning curves that come with both new and established technology.  Reach out to your Customer Success Account Manager (CSAM) to learn more about workshops that can help you.

DevOps has been shown in numerous studies and reports to improve enterprise IT performance. Organizations that have adopted DevOps have increased profitability, market share, and productivity goals. DevOps is the union of people, process, and products to enable continuous delivery of value to your end users. It is a culture change, a lean inspired mindset and a set of practices that focus on eliminating waste.

The DevOps Fundamentals workshop introduces the business value of DevOps then walks the attendees through the essential practices required for a healthy implementation of DevOps within an Organization. A mix of Slides, Case Studies, Demos and Hands on labs will be used to fully illustrate the concepts that teams need to initiate a DevOps journey.
