Chapter Meeting - December 10

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.

Bio: Marguerite has been mixing things up in the tech industry for over 20 years, starting as a Computer Scientist then building her mastery and expert-level credentials leading organizations through successful DevOps and Agile transformation. Marguerite compliments her technical savvy, business acumen and laser-sharp customer focus with expert leverage of Agile, Lean, Systems Design, and MBSE practices, reaching across and beyond individual disciplines to ignite cultures of innovation and relentless improvement.
Marguerite’s experience in traditional governance, PMO and engineering functions provides important insight for her work in waterfall, hybrid and transitional environments, where she tailors Agile and DevOps transformation roadmaps to the organization’s culture, readiness and goals. She is a regular contributor to DevOpsDays conferences, and her accomplishments have earned her advanced professional certifications and distinction from Scrum Alliance, ICAgile and Scaled Agile, where she engages regularly as a contributor.
