OpenWorld 2015: 14 Continuous Delivery / DevOps recommended sessions

OOW-logoWe can assume the upcoming Oracle OpenWorld / JavaOne  conference will be packed with Cloud themed sessions. When you’re using IaaS and PaaS the ability to rapidly create environments and configurations and automate deployments will be paramount for the effective and efficient usage of these platforms. Some organizations can afford to reap the benefits of a cloud only strategy. However, the majority is compelled to stay in a hybrid situation or use cloud for DEV/TEST and host their UAD/PROD environment on their own private PaaS.

Tooling for automated provisioning and deployment automation is very helpful and essential for using cloud infrastructure / platforms. Platforms are instantly available and infrastructure has become disposable after usage. Good continuous  delivery practices in  infrastructure / platform provisioning and application deployment realizes an enormous acceleration, consistency across the pipeline, repeatable platform processes, reliable deployments and in the end a shorter time to market for our customers.

There is still long road ahead for us, in the field of automated platform provisioning and application deployment. Oracle Enterprise Manager delivers some of the provisioning requirements and the Oracle Developer Cloud offer some deployment capabilities. At many Oracle users the automation is heavily relying on “Golden Images”,  home brew WLST, Perl, Python  Scripting and a combination of clever usage of generic tools like Puppet, Chef and Ansible. Maturing continuous delivery tools and processes is going to be an important subject for our customers in the upcoming years.

I am looking forward to discover innovative and structured solutions for Continuous Delivery at the upcoming Oracle OpenWorld / JavaOne conference. Below I listed some of the recommended sessions in this field. If you have additional tips, please add them as comments to this article. The ones marked with TIP are extra interesting.
