Session Name: Don't break silos instead bridge them
The IRS is a behemoth of an organization with 70k+ employees spanning across teams of teams, each with its own unique agenda. Dev wants to build features. Security and Test want to validate for security and quality. Ops wants operational excellence and autonomy. Come learn how the IRS developed an innovative award-winning solution called the “CICD Template Framework” to bridge these silos. Our solution keeps organizational accountability and autonomy and allows seemingly siloed organizations to take an active part in the Enterprise CICD Pipeline, creating net positive synergy.
