Cloudifying people’s everyday lives through DevOps

As organizations moves to become more agile and adopt DevOps practices, they will find their benefit of cloud services increase many times.

Hans Kristian Flaatten / November 10, 2020

During my four years I have built up our DevOps, SRE, Cloud Native and Kubernetes competency through our multi-national organization and had the opportunity of a lifetime to lead teams for some of our largest customers within banking, insurance, telecom and public sector government.

The upcoming cloudification seen from a DevOps perspective?  

DevOps did not appear out of thin air but gradually evolved in parallel as cloud providers like AWS, Azure and Google Cloud appeared. They removed the necessity for dedicated teams for networking, compute, and databases and enable everything as self-service, on-demand through an API. It is possible to adopt DevOps without Cloud but it requires much more effort and there are many pitfalls. As organizations moves to become more agile and adopt DevOps practices, they will find their benefit of cloud services increase many times.

No days are the same

My mission is to bring Developer and Operators together in what we call DevOps. I believe that everyone is allowed to have fun while working – even in the largest and most traditional of organizations. In order to achieve this peak agility, we need to stop working as independent silos and start working as one team – that is what DevOps being all about. What my teams are responsible for is building these DevOps platforms that teams can work autonomously throughout the entire lifecycle of the application. 

I like to make a difference which is one of the things I love most with TietoEVRY. I can make an impact on applications and systems that are used by millions of people daily. Some of our modern society’s most critical systems like payment and communication are built and operated by us. Each day we continue to invent and improve! No days are the same. 

In order to become better we must learn and share

I know that in order to become better as a person, professional, organization and as society we must be learning and be sharing – continuously. In my teams we always work together to solve any challenge and we happily share our experiences – good and bad – between ourselves and the rest of the organization. Only then can we unlock our true potential. We typically don't stick with the established rules we dear to do things differently. 

Since joining TietoEVRY I have been able to apply my learnings from truly agile development teams onto some of the largest enterprise organizations in the Nordics. They said it could not be done but we showed them that it was possible! Each day I get to work on some of the best and brightest within their respective fields and lead an organization that is speeding towards the clouds – literally! 

If you want to become my new colleague, we are now looking for cloud experts to join our team helping our customers with their cloud transformation! Apply here

Three terms to describe working here: 

Impact - Growth - Innovation
