DevOps is about bringing teams together to collaborate. In real life, this is easier said than done as development and operations teams often have different priorities. Development teams want to ship code fast and fix problems quickly, whereas operations teams want to provide stable and reliable IT services. There's no single source of truth, and the tooling often gets in the way and reinforces the silos.

Runbook Automation in Octopus allows development and operations teams to work together to automate routine maintenance and self-service without sacrificing control over production.

Join Bob and Derek from our advisory team as they demonstrate practical examples of self-service operations.

What you’ll learn:

  • How DevOps automation can break down the silos between Dev and Ops.
  • Introduction to runbook automation and self-service operations.
  • How to provision cloud infrastructure with Azure Resource Manager templates.
  • How to manage your database maintenance with Octopus Runbooks.
