DEVOPS AGILE SKILLS ASSOCIATION (DASA) CERTIFICATION & QUALIFICATION PROGRAM
Pink Elephant’s DevOps training program is built on the DASA Certification & Qualification scheme outlined below, which has been designed to address skills requirements for Associate, Practitioner and Expert levels. The objective is to provide the right training paths based on the needs of both an individual and the organization.
DEVOPS: FUNDAMENTALS COURSE OVERVIEW
This 3 day course is the prerequisite for all other courses in the DASA Certification Scheme.
The Fundamentals level course provides an introduction to DevOps – a very strong cultural and professional movement that stresses communication, collaboration, integration and automation to improve workflows and efficiencies between software development, IT operations and IT Service Management (ITSM) professionals. Improved workflows enable IT organizations to deliver greater business value by improving the ability to rapidly design, develop, deploy and operate reliable software and services.
There are many myths and misconceptions about what is and what is not DevOps and Agile. The key objective of this course is to debunk these myths. You will gain new insights and a deeper understanding that you can use to immediately benefit your own environment, and build a plan to improve your IT organization and service delivery.
One of the most persistent problems confronting IT organizations today is delivering innovation effectively and very efficiently. Pink has coined the phrase, IT @ The Speed of Change, to emphasize the very bold, extremely fast-paced new business world we live in today – unlike any other time in our industry. The good news is, with these unprecedented challenges come amazing opportunities!
Completing this highly practical course and achieving certification validates that you know specific principles, methods, models, and tools that are all essential to becoming a valued DevOps and Agile professional within your organization.
