Ian Watson
Senior Manager, DevOps

Ian has been working in IT and software engineering for over 20 years the last 5 years of that working on DevOps transformation – changing cultures, way of working, tools and processes, initially at Callcredit (now TransUnion) and now at Burberry. More importantly he’s also a big fan of 90¹s glam rock which is obviously a key contributor to successful DevOps transformations – in his opinion.


A decade (and a bit) of DevOps

Did you ever wonder where the ideas behind DevOps came from? Or where they’re heading next? To successfully implement a DevOps culture it’s important to understand the thinking and experiences that have taken us from a portmanteau coined by a frustrated Belgian 10 years ago to, what may argue, is the only sane way of developing and running software in modern times.
