Making DevOps initiatives scale is a maturity milestone companies are struggling to achieve. While the benefits of value stream automation to business agility is clear, most businesses find it difficult to overcome the skill and knowledge gap.

From taking a DevOps pulse, to overcoming the talent shortage and practical best practices for scalable Platform Ops.

"The flexibility of CloudShell Colony and AWS has not only allowed us to innovate our solutions faster, but it also allowed us to build on top of the Colony software. Now, our developers can use a Slack integration that we built to reserve the dynamic application environments they need for testing all without the need for our DevOps teams to disclose sensitive passwords. This has resulted in reduced time to market, more productivity, and better visibility into our cloud usage."
