  • Rudolph: "We're relying on OpenStack to abstract technology from our users, enabling switchouts w/o disruption
  • Rudolph: "Example of misoptimizing: we delivered servers as requested; blew up supply chain b/c of 80+ supported configs; now 4
  • Rudolph talking on transformation of the IT workforce: specialist > generalist: 38 roles > 13 roles (much fewer hw siloes)
  • Rudolph: "We're using #devops principles to create generalists
  • Rudolph presenting value of #devops transformation: unit costs, headcount ratios, TCO all going down
