What is DevOps Enterprise Summit?

DevOps Enterprise Summit (DOES) is a conference for the leaders of large, complex organizations implementing DevOps principles and practices. The event programming emphasizes both evolving technical and architectural practices and the methods needed to lead widespread change efforts in large organizations. The goal is to give leaders the tools and practices they need to develop and deploy software faster and to win in the marketplace.


With events in both the United States and Europe, DevOps Enterprise provides keynotes, panels, breakouts, a community space for spontaneous gatherings, and an expo hall. Sessions will be led by leaders who are pioneering these practices in large and complex organizations across a wide range of industries. The keynotes will feature industry luminaries as well as speakers from well-known companies who will share the learnings from their enterprise DevOps initiatives.


Some stats on the 2016 DOES San Francisco event:

  • More than 1,300 attendees
  • More than 100 speakers
  • 75 sessions including keynotes, breakouts, panels, and workshops
  • More than 50 sponsors
  • 3 packed days of informative sessions, networking, sharing, and learning
  • More than 10,000 tweets during the three-day event (from more than 1,800 contributors)


DevOps Enterprise Summit debuted in 2014 in the heart of the San Francisco Bay Area. The inaugural event was coproduced by IT Revolution and founding partner Electric Cloud. More than 700 attendees heard talks from more than 80 speakers as everyone explored the unique challenges that DevOps brings to large organizations.


In 2015, DevOps Enterprise moved to downtown San Francisco. Taking feedback from attendees and speakers, we focused on five topics: culture, organizational design, automated testing, metrics, and security. The event grew to 1100 attendees with over 100 speakers and 45 sponsors supporting the event.
