Taking Risks: How Experimentation Leads to Breakthroughs

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

More organizations are embracing the power of experimentation, using a reliable set of tools and proven processes to foster collaboration and produce results. Cloud computing is a key driver, lowering the time-to-results of such experiments, and rewarding companies who embrace the "fail fast" mentality of start ups. Real breakthroughs don't appear on traditional long term roadmaps - they come from taking risks and iterating.

OpenStack is, in effect, an organization which is embracing this very same model. Rather than a single company, our development process relies on "distributed R&D" with a roadmap that is increasingly being defined by experimenting with new technologies like containers. Throughout this keynote, Mark will cover several emerging OpenStack projects under active development as they seeking to find a market fit, rapidly iterating based on user feedback.
