If you ask five people, "What is DevOps?", you will often get five different answers, even if those people are all on the same team! This talk will answer that question, in the words of a bona fide DevOps Transformation Coach, dispel a few misconceptions about DevOps, and present a step-by-step approach for a DevOps transformation for a fictional company. We will highlight common business drivers, pain points, planning a transformational DevOps journey, and using the latest patterns and practices to achieve operational excellence.
