Challenges & Opportunities of DevOps for the Oil & Gas Sector

January 21  2021  @ 10 am ET / 4 pm CET 

As part of their journey to Digital Transformation, Oil & Gas enterprises are shifting their focus on becoming agile through DevOps in order to provide efficiency and productivity. Because there is no single standard DevOps methodology, many companies are finding it challenging to manage security requirements, which contributes to a slow start, slow delivery, and overall difficulty to scale.

In this roundtable, we will discuss the challenges, the risks, and the different methodologies available to enforce security and compliance throughout the Software Development Lifecycle (SDLC) without having to compromise on security or agility while addressing the objectives of The Open Group Open Subsurface Data Universe (OSDU) Forum.

Key outcomes from the session:

  • Identify key application security requirements and learn how to deliver secure code at the speed of DevOps
  • Learn how to achieve compliance with OSS licenses according to company policies and industry regulations
  • Learn how to increase developer agility and decrease capital expenses
