Watch: Why DevOps Won’t Automate You Out of a Job

As automation lightens the load on IT operations personnel, and the DevOps cultural shift brings dev and ops together, people from managers to sys admins may be worrying about their jobs.

Furthermore, as DevOps takes hold, other roles in the organization are set to transform. DevOps potentially reworks project management methodologies, so what about the project managers? DevOps flattens organizations, so should middle managers be worried?

Fear not! Automation, and DevOps more broadly, are creating new job opportunities, expanding and empowering current roles, and enabling folks at every level to better collaborate and advance their teams along with their own careers.

In this recorded webinar, industry analyst and president of Intellyx Jason Bloomberg offers some broad observations about the organizational impact DevOps is having across enterprises.

Pauly Comtois, VP of DevOps at Hearst Business Media, joins Jason for a thought-provoking, in-depth discussion of how DevOps impacts individuals’ roles within the organization, with some first-person stories of Hearst Business Media’s DevOps transformation.
