Author Gene Kim, Actifio Customers Fill Packed Agenda for Virtual Event

WALTHAM, Mass. – September 16, 2020 – Day two of Actifio Data Driven 2020: The Next Normal will be highlighted today with a thought-provoking discussion on “The Impact of COVID-19 on DevOps and the Next Normal,” featuring Gene Kim, founder and former CTO of Tripwire and author of The Unicorn Project, and Paul Forte, Actifio’s President of Global Field Operations. Nader El-Ramy, Chief Product Officer of ZE Power Group, will be among several Actifio customers describing their organizations’ transformation into data-led modern enterprises. 

Kim and Forte will discuss how COVID-19 has impacted DevOps culture, from technical practices to cultural norms that have changed how teams deliver applications and services quickly. Sign up here for the session, which begins at 11 a.m. ET today. 

In his Day One keynote Tuesday, Kim explained that the ideal work environment ensures that every team is getting the data they need, on-demand, quickly and accurately. Author of The Unicorn Project, The Phoenix Project, and The Visible Ops Handbook, Kim said, “The only way that [organizations] can be reliable and secure is to do smaller deployments more frequently.  That allows them to respond more quickly in the marketplace, create stability and reliability in the operational environment, to be more secure, increase market share, increase productivity, and have happier employees.” 

Actifio Data Driven 2020: The Next Normal brings together industry experts to discuss digital transformation, what the future might look like, and how data can thrive during these uncertain times. Register for day two here
