    The demands of the digital economy can be highly disruptive to organizations struggling to scale operations efficiently and quickly. Cloud emerged from the recognition that "throwing more hardware" at a problem was no longer financially feasible or operationally efficient. Today, we're seeing the growth of IT operationalization (a.k.a. DevOps) in the face of "throwing more people" at the problem of scale and speed of deployment. Automation within IT is not intended to replace people, rather it's intended to augment and assist people by shifting burdens to technology to realize scale and speed of deployments. But to achieve sustainable operationalization, it's important to understand what you're getting yourself into. This session will provide guidance as to how to get started with automation and APIs with an eye toward the "gotchas" to watch out for.
