Oh Keptn, my Keptn: A data driven way to DevOps & SRE automation

 
English Intermediate Main Conference

Keptn, a CNCF project, is currently being adopted by DevOps & SRE teams around the world helping them reduce custom delivery and operations scripting by up to 90%. A prominent local example is Raiffeisen Software who are automating their release validation process with Keptn. Keptn is a control plane that runs on Kubernetes (such as AKS). At its core it uses an event-driven engine connecting your existing DevOps tools (Azure DevOps, GitHub, Jenkins, JMeter, Prometheus, Terraform, Jira … ). At the core of the orchestration it follows SRE practices by automatically evaluating SLOs (Service Level Objectives) to make data driven decisions on how to orchestrate your delivery and operational processes! Join this session where Juergen Etzlstorfer and Andreas Grabner, both Keptn Maintainers, explain the core use cases, how the Azure community is adopting it and how you can get started in minutes.
