Session Name: Leaner Landing Zones Through SRE & SLOs
Cloud Landing Zones are critical to cloud adoption at enterprises, but how can you ensure that the capabilities you build are fit for purpose, are actively being used and that you're not wasting time gold plating when you should be delivering far more value elsewhere? We'll go through how we transformed from a team that had paper SLAs that existed for simply for checking boxes, to adopting a true SLO based strategy coupled with lean thinking which fundamentally changed everything from operational support, to solution design and product management. Takeaways will be hard lessons learned about the cultural shift to adopting SRE, and an example lightweight architecture that allows you to track your SLOs today.
