Andi Mann has been serving as Conference Chair of the DevOps Summit since its inception. He is one of the world's recognized leaders in DevOps, and continues to be one of its most articulate advocates.

When did you first start thinking about DevOps and its potential impact on enterprise IT? Andi: I first started thinking about DevOps back in 2010, when I was an IT industry analyst.

In doing so, open standards and technologies also allow for market hypergrowth, and this is the key to handling the growth of data. A doubling every three years means we'll be grappling with a full Yottabyte of data in the year 2040. That's one billion p... (more)
