Emily Lewis-Pinnell
Vice President, Cloud Transformation, NTT DATA

Session Abstract:

Financial services organizations are adopting a DevOps culture to increase the speed, efficiency and quality of IT delivery. While the technology implications and challenges of moving to a DevOps model are well known, the cultural changes that are necessary to ensure success are even more important yet often get brushed aside. In this presentation, Emily Lewis-Pinnell, vice president of NTT DATA’s cloud portfolio, examines the right roles and mindset, organizational design of different departments, metrics for accountability and overall best-practices financial services firms must adopt to ensure success and embrace a new way of working with cloud-native environments.
