This talk shares the experiences and knowledge gained while implementing CD&D and DevOps at Ericsson’s Business Area Digital Services (8000 employees).
The last couple of years have seen a movement in the telecom industry towards new business models and technologies, triggered by the introduction of the 5G mobile networks.
E.g. we can clearly see a trend towards microservices-oriented system design, and subscription-based business models. Still, the networks remain a complex systems of systems.
This talk is to share our experiences in establishing Continuous Delivery and Deployment in our reality - the highly complex, rapidly changing, and sometimes quite conservative telecom business.
When talking CD&D, we must also address DevOps, or so we think. We will share how we look upon DevOps, the relationship between CD&D and DevOps, and especially in a business-to-business-to-consumer business landscape.
Outline of report:
  • The many reasons for us going CD&D and DevOps!
  • How do we see CD&D and DevOps relate to and complement each other in our business situation?
  • How we are approaching CD&D and DevOps in a business environment that is o multi-customer, multi-country, o multi-technology environment, o extremely competitive, o with everything (literally!) changing rapidly, all the time, o with a blend of customers being from very conservative and traditional to being very progressive, o and where everyone involved in the industry needs to become faster and more efficient?
  • How we realized that getting inspiration from other success-cases is one thing, doing it yourself is something else…
  • How does company culture influence how you can (or can’t) succeed with the implementation and deployment of CD&D and DevOps?
  • What have we succeeded to do, and what remain to be done… or can we actually phrase it this way in our business?

Learning Outcomes:
  • When you leave this presentation, we hope that we have given you some insights from our journey, that you can take with to your own company’s journey towards CD&D and DevOps. And perhaps you will feel that you’re not alone in feeling that CD&D and DevOps maybe isn’t just that simple in your business arena?
  • Shared experience from addressing Continuous Delivery and Deployment, and DevOps
  • - at very large scale,
  • - in a business-to-business-to-customer industry,
  • - in a somewhat conservative, and highly regulated business,
  • - for large systems of systems.
