Adoption of DevOps can result in creating high-performing IT organizations. Successful adoption requires cultural change and acquiring certain competencies. The DevOps Agile Skills Association (DASA) has defined a competency framework for DevOps. Watch this webinar and you’ll learn

  • What does the DASA competence framework include
  • The DASA DevOps Agile Skills Qualification Scheme
  •  How training and consulting companies can join DASA to advance the development of DevOps skills for their clients

IT organizations that are going to adopt DevOps need to evaluate what skills and knowledge are required to be present in the teams. The DevOps Agile Skills Association (DASA) has developed a competency framework on DevOps and Agile. Based on member case studies in real-life organizations, the first version of DASA’s competence framework has recently been drafted. Organizations can utilize that to assess their current DevOps competency gaps. Training and consulting providers can help their clients build successful DevOps teams by closing the competence gaps.

ITpreneurs is one of the forerunner organizations for DASA. DASA is an independent and open member association aiming at bringing together a global community for DevOps & Agile skills development made up of member organizations representing leading IT thought leaders both from consulting and training fields from over a dozen countries across six continents. DASA is providing all IT training and consulting organizations with a relevant qualification scheme that reflects the competence development related challenges around DevOps and Agile Skills Development. Adding DASA portfolio in your training delivery is easy.

I am a self-starter with an entrepreneurial spirit and an unconventional wide range of interests. I have proven experience assisting organizations to nurture and expand their business through developing great product portfolios and digital marketing campaigns, including brand identity management, channel management, and direct sales.

I will challenge you, but you’ll have fun along the way. I am a quick learner and have an agile mindset and being inquisitive by nature, I find my ways to obtain a bird’s eye view, analyzing improvement scenarios and best possible results. According to Alan Key it’s easier to invent the future than to predict it; working in new environments, starting up new businesses, launching new ideas and greenfielding is my passion.
