When you're ready to transform your IT organization to continuously deliver value to your customers, you'll find that database specialists are very resistant to change. In this 30 minute session, Kendra Little will share three key insights from the recent webinar, "Biggest Issues in a DBA's World Right Now." This executive summary will help you understand what motivates database professionals and how you can inspire your database staff to become agents for positive change.

Key Insights from the Panel - Kendra herself, William Durkin, and Hamish Watson:

1. Embracing DevOps requires a key shift in perspective for IT workers: they go from being members of a cost center that fulfills requests to co-engineers to deliver value to customers
2. DBAs can be motivated to embrace DevOps if it reduces deployment pain for database changes -- which should be an outcome of DevOps culture changes, and is desirable for financial reasons
3. Database DevOps requires collaboration and communication - to encourage this, we should measure our teams on outcomes from collaboration and communication.
