How SAP fully automates the provisioning and operations of its Dynatrace Managed cluster fleet

Room Da Vinci 1,2

SAP Cloud Platform is using Dynatrace Managed for internal monitoring of its infrastructure, services and SAP’s own applications all across the world. The multi-IaaS strategy of SAP Cloud Platform brings it beyond SAP’s own data-centers to multiple IaaS providers. SAP’s high standards in terms of governance and data privacy demand that monitoring data sits side-by-side with the systems it is collected from, which means that there are Dynatrace Managed clusters beside most SAP Cloud Platform Landscapes. These Dynatrace clusters are installed, updated and managed the same way as all other components of SAP Cloud Platform. This includes validation pipelines that distinguish between development, testing, pre-production and production landscapes. Join us to gain insight on how to automatically deploy and operate Dynatrace clusters at scale reducing the amount of manual labor and focusing on the unique insights that Digital Performance Management delivers.

Digitally Transforming Health and Well-being with Pivotal Cloud Foundry and Dynatrace

Room Da Vinci 1,2

Bob Johnson Bob Johnson
Humana Inc.

Humana has been on the leading edge of technology in the healthcare industry for some time now, particularly with the creation of their Digital Experience Center which features Pivotal Cloud Foundry (PCF) and with the maturation of their IT Command Center which features the breadth of Dynatrace’s product line. In this session we will learn a number of things, starting with why Humana chose PCF as a key platform to power their digital transformation from legacy software development practices towards modern software engineering. The acceleration of this culture change and new methodology exposed gaps in existing monitoring practices and tools, and we'll learn how Dynatrace via the Full-stack Add-on for Pivotal Cloud Foundry was able to fill those gaps. With unique visibility into the entire environment from the user experience to the underlying VMs and everything in-between, Dynatrace provided an intuitive view which simplified problem determination in the and transformed how Humana manages service availability for its customers. Finally we'll learn about Humana's strategy for the future with public cloud deployment, continuous monitoring with DevOps, and monitoring tool consolidation on the horizon.

The transformation from waterfall to agile operations at Citrix

Room Da Vinci 1,2

Agile transformations are typically done from development towards testing and eventually operations. At Citrix, Nestor approached the problem from the other end. Bringing in Abeer, an Agile Coach, allowed them to transform their Operations team from Waterfall (Traditional Ops) to Partial Scrum (Intro to Agile) all the way to Kanban (applying more agile principles such as retrospectives, grooming session …) In this session Abeer and Nestor walk us through their transformational process, how day-2-day agile operations looks like, how monitoring is used to foster continuous improvement and why the IT Ops team would never go back to the old and manual way of doing things

PayPal: Continuous performance as a self-service with fully-automated feedback loops

Room Raphael 1-3

PayPal's ongoing leadership as an industry innovator requires faster development cycles and increased adoption of continuous testing practices. For special efforts, the development teams needed more frequent feedback about application performance, scalability limitations and variances between builds. Accelerating the frequency of performance simulations would help increase the rate of innovation and improve the quality of code delivered to production. In this session we'll review some the automation techniques that helped PayPal Credit increase testing feedback from a monthly effort to a nearly-continuous daily activity. We'll spend time looking at the benefits of a fully-automated, actionable performance feedback loop that delivers performance feedback to developers in hours rather than weeks or months. Additionally, we will take a closer look at how these changes impacted the culture of development and operations, improving both the quality of critical thinking about performance and the value delivered back to the business. This "Secret Sauce" session will include conceptual learnings and hands-on demonstration: - What a continuous performance environment looks like and the benefits it brings to your DevOps team - How to create a parallel pipeline for on-demand performance feedback using JIRA, Rundeck, JMeter and Dynatrace - Where and how to leverage performance feedback to optimize flow - How to get engineers on-board and excited about building better performant code

Shifting left by Continuous Performance Testing in Intuit

Room Raphael 1-3

Sumit Nagal Sumit Nagal
Intuit

Gone are the times where developers had to wait for performance engineers to write load tests, execute them and provide feedback at the end of the development cycle. With the findings from PERFORM 2017, Sumit and team went ahead and transformed the way performance feedback is delivered to developers at Intuit. Intuits CI/CD pipeline leverages CloudBees (Enterprise Jenkins), Gatling and Dynatrace. Relevant performance metrics are automatically archived as build artifacts allowing everyone to make valuable informed decisions on whether to stop or keep the pipeline flowing. In this session, Sumit will advise how embedding performance in the CI/CD pipeline transformed their engineering culture. Fast performance feedback on new features has significantly increased their overall quality including throughput to their development teams. While Intuit is leveraging AppMon in their CI/CD pipeline, Sumit will also show how Continuous Performance Feedback can be implemented with Dynatrace.
