Dr. Tapabrata Pal, Distinguished Engineer, Capital One, highlighted the best practices he’s seen, ending his talk mentioning Gartner’s “Bi-Modal IT” is dead!, while Microsoft’s Group Product Manager for the Azure DevOps Product, Gopinath Chigakkagari  highlighted the need for tools and metrics throughout from legacy applications lifecycle management (ALM) to DevOps with the need for end to end PLM: Project Lifecycle Management. Other presenters discussed broader themes from AIOps to Value Stream Mapping in PLM: Project Lifecycle Management.
