These days innovation is no longer an option but a necessity. It’s easier than ever to collect data to drive innovation forward, but before moving forward, teams have to ensure their platform is as reliable as possible so that innovations don’t become a source of instability for customers. This is why Site Reliability Engineers are so pivotal to driving innovation while maintaining a reliable platform.
In this talk, we will be discussing how SRE’s can help teams identify opportunities and blindspots, as well as, instill confidence in development of products and services. The goal is to show PMs/POs the value of how prioritizing platform stability can open the doors for fast innovation, as well as, objective decision-making when trying to prioritize backlog items.
