Why You Should Join Us At Continuous Automation Summit In Washington, DC

Join us in Washington, D.C. for a discussion on how to deliver applications faster, more efficiently and with less risk.

This one-day summit is designed to help decision makers from application development and infrastructure operation teams design an effective continuous automation approach for all their digital initiatives.

At the Continuous Automation Summit, we’ll discuss:

  • Complexities, strategies and outcomes that are unique to Federal agencies
  • How to deliver applications to your customers faster, more efficiently and with less risk
  • The complexity of hybrid realities: shifting to cloud-native, container-first environments while managing legacy architectures
  • How to enable development teams to accelerate their outputs with vertically integrated developer services teams
  • The industry leaders who have delivered on their own digital transformation strategies with DevOps and Continuous Automation.

When are where? Thursday, October 5, 2017. Washington, DC.




9:00 – Continental Breakfast / Registration

9:30 – Continuous Automation for your Enterprise

Ken Cheney, Chief Revenue Officer, Chef

Digital transformation has created new opportunities for government to improve services for citizens and run more efficiently.  In response, IT organizations are moving aggressively to modern cloud and container-based application architectures, while still maintaining critical legacy environments.  In this rapidly changing hybrid landscape, continuous automation – across infrastructure, applications, and compliance – holds the key to delivering software-based services quickly, efficiently, and at low risk.

10:15 – DevOps is critical to Mission Assurance at Raytheon

Steve Porter, Engineering Fellow, Raytheon III

Raytheon IIS uses DevOps to improve mission assurance, while controlling cost and schedule. Infrastructure as Code and cloud services enable DevOps. Using Chef Automate and InSpec, Raytheon is able to configuration manage the deployment of system workloads in a repeatable and consistent manner, independently of the underlying infrastructures.

10:45 – Shadow-Soft: STIG Automation w/ Chef Automate

John R. Ray, Lead Consultant, Shadow-Soft

The DoD’s Security Technical Implementation Guides (STIGs) are the baseline for a vast majority of companies. But with 9 different Mission Assurance Categories, hundreds of individual action items, and a prevailing resistance to security, how do you even begin? Join me as we explore the process for the purposeful and continuous assessment of your organization’s security posture. Learn how to use Inspec to define security specifications and detect anomalies, deal with secrets in profiles, and correct your findings with Chef Automate.

11:15 – Break

11:30 – The Journey to Continuous Automation: Detect, Correct and Automate

The most successful organizations pursue continuous automation in three stages: Detect, Correct, and Automate.  First, detect security risks, bottlenecks, and areas of concern. Next, correct priority issues in order to drive outcomes. Finally, automate by building the detect-and-correct cycle into how you operate.  In this session we will share practical techniques to achieve outcomes at each step while building a foundation for success in subsequent phases.

12:30 – Networking Lunch
