Join us for the next Agile RI meeting on Tuesday, Dec 18th from 6-8 pm at Tech Collective for a presentation from Brian Prince and Rob Pleau of FM Global where they’ll share their stories and lessons building CICD pipelines as part of an agile transformation initiative at the company.
About 16 months ago when the company embarked on a business technology transformation (powered by Agile) the transformation implementation leaders recognized Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery (CICD) practices would be a crucial to achieving improved time to market and product quality goals. Brian and Rob joined a newly formed cross-functional, cross-organizational CICD Services team whose focus was to help educate product teams on CICD platforms and practices, setup CICD pipelines and support the underlying systems. The team has collaborated with infrastructure, operations, security and architecture groups to create server and environment pipelines using many of the tools already in house. The products flowing through the CICD pipelines have ranged from new greenfield applications, to 15-year-old line of business applications. Brian and Rob look forward to sharing experiences, observations, and challenges they’ve encountered on the journey so far.
