The DevOpsDays is a conference series with events all over the globe aimed at further improving the concepts of DevOps within the community. A dedicated group of core organizers provide advice, but the events themselves are run by local volunteers. The 2018 DevOps days will be held on the 27th till the 29th of June and is full of inspiration for DevOps enthousiasts with speakers like Michael Ducy and Bridget Kromhout.

In addition to sponsoring the DevOpsDays, our Senior DevOps consultant Arnold van Wijnbergen will try to teach the attendees something about ‘Why Tooling (Only) Isn’t The Answer’.
Preview: Why Tooling (Only) Isn’t The Answer
The increasing importance of our tooling, the dependence on their ability to automate and potential damage when they don’t work properly should make us think about repositioning our tooling strategy. Nowadays tools are an essential part and are getting more important every day for delivering high quality productivity. But why are we still handling them as non critical parts?
We can probably all agree that at first instance it seems simple to select our favourite tools. We probably also know that it’s actually a complex undertaking to avoid pitfalls and select your ‘Swiss knife’. Most companies are still struggling to find the best fitting toolset for their organisation, processes and technology stack. This struggle is caused by various legitimate reasons, and tools end up not being beneficial or never being used at all.
During this presentation Arnold takes attendees on the journey of defining and refining an end goal, effectively learning from the things that matter and defining an Enterprise Tooling strategy. Together with the audience he will explore some typical pitfalls and practices that help to identify strengths and opportunities for organisations. After all we want to start being productive with our tools as early as possible.
