Hardware-Inclusive DevOps: Applying DevOps Principles and Practices to Cyber-Physical System Engineering
Presenter: Marguerite Bryan
Abstract: DevOps has become the rallying cry of organizations looking to improve time-to-market, quality and other strategic business outcomes. However, much like the Agile Manifesto itself, DevOps surfaced and was developed with a strong software-centric focus. Our more recent frontier is the scaling of DevOps practices to the engineering of large, complex cyber-physical systems composed of hardware, firmware, and software.
In this Hardware-Inclusive DevOps presentation, we will examine the core tenets of DevOps and how they can be applied in organizations building cyber-physical systems. While many of the DevOps principles and practices can be leveraged and applied with minimal adaptation for hardware-inclusive solutions, there are emerging technologies which complement core DevOps practices to specifically address the challenges of applying these principles in the development of cyber-physical systems. Participants will leave with a better understanding of how DevOps practices can be extended to hardware-inclusive systems, and with an action plan for applying these learnings in their organization.
