SAFe training: Certified SAFe DevOps (SDP)

DevOps is a mindset and a collection of technical applications to accelerate an organization's Time To Market (TTM). This requires highly effective collaboration in planning, developing, testing, deploying, releasing and maintaining business solutions: the Continuous Delivery Pipeline.

Faster together!

This 2-day course helps people in technical, non-technical, and leadership roles work together to optimize their value stream from start to finish. Participants will learn what DevOps is, why it is important for each role, and how to design a Continuous Delivery Pipeline tailored to their business. Participants work in cross-functional teams to map their current value stream, identify key bottlenecks, and create an action-oriented implementation plan that will accelerate the benefits of DevOps for their organization.

This training is perfect for...

Anyone who wants to learn how to fit DevOps into their (future) SAFe implementation seamlessly. The training is accessible to everyone working in an Agile Release Train. This training is also suitable for managers who want to make informed decisions about DevOps and guide their employees in doing the same.
