Track 8

Frobisher 3

Continuously delivering continuous delivery

Coding Level 1
Advanced Level 2

With agile principles and practices reaching maturity, in many organizations the focus for the coming years will be on the next steps. Beyond agile. In fast pace organizations are adopting agile, DevOps, continuous delivery and new architectures such as microservices. Often all at once. Although from a perspective of similarities between these paradigms this makes sense, this also requires for increased collaboration between business, development and operations. During this session, Kim van Wilgen, CIO at the Dutch insurance company Klaverblad, will give practical insights on the process of migration to continuous delivery, with real-life examples from her experiences. How can organizations deal with the complexity of simultaneously changing architectures, ways of working, technology, and foremost culture? How can we make that change and at the same time still deliver software on a daily basis? How can we deliver continuous delivery?

Kim van Wilgen


In her role as CIO at the well-known Dutch insurance company Klaverblad Verzekeringen, Kim is responsible for all software development and operations. Although a nerd at heart, she also has over a decade of experience in product development and comparable managerial roles on the other side: the business. She can still speak just enough of the language of the product owners and the users to understand the gap we quite frequently need to bridge. Kim is passionate about topics such as Agile, Kanban, DevOps and Continuous Delivery, and the management of the cultural, organizational, team and technological changes associated with these approaches. http://www.kimvanwilgen.com  @kimvanwilgen
