Multi-Dimensional Professionals Powering Cloud & DevOps Adoption

10 Oct 2019
DevOps, Containers and Agile Methodology Theatre
Digital transformation requires transformational talent. As more organizations move forward with Cloud & DevOps, the principle of 'shifting left' is opening up opportunities for developers, operational staff, security and others to supplement their core competencies with a broad set of general skills so as to migrate from an I-shaped specialist to multi-dimensional T-shaped professional. T-shaped practitioners are in the highest demand in the talent market today. Skilling is a human endeavor that supports both personal and organizational goals. For most IT professionals, it's easy to identify the depth of knowledge that forms the stem of the T (e.g., developer). However, grooming the right skills for the right role at the top of the T (e.g., testing) can be more challenging. How does an individual know which skills to groom in order to grow their careers? How does an organization know which skills to hire in order to gain competitive advantage and provide ongoing value to their customers? Are technical skills enough to cross the digital divide or are soft skills and best practice frameworks part of the skills recipe as well? In this session, Dheeraj will explore emerging trends in Cloud & DevOps skills modernization by presenting the benchmarks, and insights from the first Upskilling: 2019 Enterprise DevOps Skills Report. The fact based report was fielded by the DevOps Institute in partnership with Industry Leaders - Electric Cloud and Cloudbees and is based on a detailed global DevOps open community survey as well as interviews with several enterprise, industry and hiring leaders. In addition to presenting the survey results, Dheeraj will help attendees understand the characteristics of the T-shaped model and Multi-dimensional Modern Professionals and provide guidance for getting started in building personal and organizational learning and career paths.
