- Next up: Jeffrey Katzenberg, CEO, Dreamworks Animation
- Katzenberg: Showing video: 10y ago from Lion King launch: brought out lion, misbehaving: "lion drool stains tough to get out"
- Katzenberg: "I've known Meg Whitman since 1918.. Umm, no. 1980. We worked together at Walt Disney Corp"
- Katzenberg: "Why should you all be listening to me, a 'cartoon guy?'" Showing video: animation: hand-drawn, then sound, color
- Katzenberg: ...then digital awakening, digital revolution: Shrek 1st to win Oscar award: Kung Fu Panda, Monsters/Aliens...
- Katzenberg: "Animation has come a long way from artists hand-drawn each frame; we use highest end of computing technology"
- Katzenberg: "Dreamworks: 1994: Lion King; then did Shrek: 1st Academy Award, we were a startup; we viewed CG as future"
- Katzenberg: "we completely retooled, retrained, transformed to digital animation house; now largest animation house: 16 films"
- Katzenberg: "After seeing Polar Express 3D, I knew we had to xform again; it would 2x compute demands: one movie for each eye"
- Katzenberg: "We are first house to release 100% of films in 3D. Most exciting development in my 40 yrs in movie industry"
- Katzenberg: "3D helps us tell most immersive stories possible"
- Katzenberg: "Each movie has 130K frames, each done by 12 diff depts: on avg, goes thru 10-100 iterations in each dept" (!!)
- Katzenberg: "That's 3 billion iterations over 4 year project to get the finished product"
- Katzenberg: "Artists must separately animate face and model, then hair, clothing; all different depts"
- Katzenberg: "8 hours to animate 3 seconds of film, then critiqued/reviewed; cycles begins again. Insane"
- Katzenberg: "It used to 3 animators for 5 months of work; now we can do it in real-time; game changer or waiting 8 hrs"
- Katzenberg: "Isn't it interesting that me, as a non-technology
- Katzenberg: "Our artists used to work at the speed of technology; now we can work at speed of their imagination"
- Katzenberg: "Every business wants to be better, faster, cheaper; usually can only get 2 of those; we're getting all three"
- Katzenberg: "This will liberate our artists & totally transform our biz & production process; 12 depts -> 5 or 6; terrifying"
- Katzenberg: "@dealarchitect: #HPDiscover Katzenberg on complexity of modern animation. A good animator generates in week 3 seconds of single character in final product
- RT @dealarchitect:Katzenberg: A good animator generates in week 3 seconds of single character in final product
- Katzenberg: "LCD provides much worse colors than monitor: Shrek was in different color in every scene: we hoarded old CRTs"
- Katzenberg: "The DreamColor LCD from HP exceeded for 1st time color monitors; we could finally let CRTs go"
- @vk_is: CEODreamWorks - "each film is made up of 130k frames, 3B iterations. 3 secs of lead character tkes 1 wk of best desiger's time." #HPDiscover
- Katzenberg: "5 years ago, before cloud was in vocabulary, we started using HP cloud
- Katzenberg: "Our industry plagued by digital piracy: loss of file can result in movies being avail before movie release"

- Katzenberg: "I'd like to do a do-over of that terrifying moment 18 years ago." (Oh, no... He's bringing out a lion?! Haha.)
- Katzenberg: Haha. Bringing out a guy in a lion suit. That's good risk management: "I won't get on stage w/real lion again"
TB2787 The journey from SOA governance to DevOps
- War room became a fixed part of the job: says that we have the problem
- New support model needed: applications, operations, infrastrucutre
- Unum: apps and infrastructure: both have strategy, roadmap, design, governance, SDLC/IDLC: #devops
- Unum: "monitoring is a team sport; everyone should have access to tools & have access to same data" #devops
- Unum: "fail fast: establish SLAs for all environments; no promotion unless SLAs are met"
- Unum: "establish SLAs for all environments (eg, dev/test/prod); if it fails dev SLA, it'll fail in every other env, too"
- Unum: "we're continually frustrated how our tools focused on Dev or Ops; no
- Unum: "a server without any code provides no value to the business"
- Eliminate the monkeys
- Unum: "we use SOA Center (systinet) to provide ALM; integrate w/BSM, Qual Ctr to enforce SLA perf & acceptable # of defects"
- Unum: "we use SOA Center (systinet) to provide ALM; integrate it w/ Qual Ctr to enforce SLA perf & acceptable # of defects"
- Unum: "goal of our automation is to eliminate meetings and reviews: make it objective, no humans needed"
- Unum: "also integ SOA Center to Layer7 SSG to govern svc deployments: prevent unauth deployments w/o SLA verif" #devops
- Unum: "we enforce retirement: upon deployments, people have 12 months before forcible retirement; we'll stop routing traffic"
- Unum: "we own many, many monitoring tools: somewhere between 40-100: need NDA to find out exactly. :)"
TB2658: DevOps Pane: tighter collaboration between testing and monitoring
Bryon Colaizzi, Director of App Performance, Paychex
- Bryon Colaizzi, Director of App Performance, Paychex talking abt #devops journey. Lots of enterprise DevOps succ stories here
- Paychex: automation of provisioning dev/prod activities reduced by a factor of 3 #devops
- Paychex #devops goals: reduce time to value and IT cycles to decrease financial commitments
- Paychex #devops: collocated Dev & Ops together to create tribal knowledge/collaboration/trust
- Paychex #devops: over 100 projects in flight at any time: challenge: how do you keep environments available at any time?
- Paychex #devops: env creation cycle time: 6mo to 3mo to 21 days: complex 26 component environment
BNY Mellon: Erik Rogers, Managing Director, Enterprise Architecture: sharing their #devops story run out of shared svcs group
- BNY Mellon: #devops success story: team grew 20%, but project load increased by 100% (!!)
- BNY Mellon: #devops creating standardized procedures/monitoring among 80 people spanning 20 groups (Dev, QA, Production, etc)
- BNY Mellon: creating centralized support group to house all production readiness, common processes, #devops onramp
- BNY Mellon: #devops was combo of top-down decree and "people in trenches"
- BNY Mellon: #devops allows us to create library of non-functional requirements
- BNY Mellon: #devops challenges: getting everyone to use, trust and diagnose problems with the tools
- BNY Mellon: challenge: "it's terrible when u'r on incident call & u only have 1 person who can use tool, even tho all trained"
Ron Sitnick, World Bank, Information Officer, Lead Perf Testing, Global Monitoring Teams: #devops story
- IFC: #devops: all performance testing and global monitoring now run by one gruop: consistent tools, practices, expertise
- IFC: #devops: all test code and scenario data is centralized, versioned, shared
- IFC: #devops: production data aids in building load models, increasing test accuracy
- IFC: #devops: have diagnostics on all Dev servers: Dev & Prod using same tool sets & technologies
IFC: #devops: "everyone sees the same data, across all environments and silos: this elim a lot of arguing/finger pointing"
OH: "We created 185 questions: how fast do you want it? as fast as production. to force performance that is testable"
OH: "what is performance requirement for this app?" "umm... 5 seconds..."
Q: "is #devops only for internet companies, not enterprises?" A: "no way. Enterprises need #devops"
"I do believe that the larger and more complex the enterprise, #devops is more difficult"
"For years, monitoring is often perceived as the automated finger-pointing mechanism. No one trusted the tools."
"Our production monitoring tools allow us to show what functionality is never used, so we can cut the code out" Nice. #devops
IFC #devops: created performance metric (sum of resp times), graphed over time: biz execs loved it, seeing improving perf
"seeing performance over time allows you to catch defects much earlier, before catastrophic event"
Q: "how do you get Dev to work perf issues early?" A: "It's challenging. We put perf test into the continuous testing suit"
..."we do load testing, endurance testing, try to find memory leaks for every piece of code checked in"
..."these automated tests is how we get these perf issues found and fixed early in the Dev cycle."
- Why? Is enterprises too big? It's about aligning priorities,
