Course Description

Without DevOps, unforeseen challenges can plague the production environment, wreaking havoc with deadlines, deliverables, and ultimately the business mission. In this course you'll learn about optimizing flow, beginning with the six principles of flow: make work visible, limit work in progress, reduce batch sizes, optimize the process to reduce the number of handoffs, continually identify and elevate constraints, and eliminate waste in the value stream. Then you'll discover the effect of DevOps on optimizing flow, how infrastructure configuration management can be applied, common tools used for configuration management of infrastructure, and the deployment pipeline as part of infrastructure as code. Finally, you'll explore examples of deployment pipelines, how to improve flow by integrating security, and the role of automating steps in the deployment pipeline. This course was originally created by Global Knowledge (GK).
