Deployment within a traditional IT environmentPresented at PHPSW user group, August 2017

Building line-of-business web applications for clients with traditional IT departments brings its own set of challenges when it comes to DevOps. In particular, the IT department adds additional constraints that you may not see in more forward-thinking companies. Rob Allen explores these complexities and shares some solutions he and his team came up with in order to use modern development practices in nontraditional environments. You’ll learn how CI tools with appropriate scripting enable reliable delivery of a quality product on IBM i and Windows. Rob also covers the organizational and technical challenges encountered when IT departments are not used to developers having a say in the server environment and shows you why it’s worth spending time getting them on board.
