As global adoption of digital and mobile experiences continue to enjoy explosive growth, traditional means of developing digital services have to evolve to achieve exponential agility, resilience and service reliability all in a bid to deliver a superior digital customer experience.

Today, new digital development methodologies, including DevOps, continuous delivery, automation and new practices such as Site Reliability Engineering and Systems Performance Engineering, help digital teams seamlessly develop and deploy new digital services from code to production in an agile and resilient way.

This unique Think-Tank gathers top industry practitioners and tech experts over a one- year period to exchange insights and develop strategies around key tenets of building successful digital engineering teams. These insights will be summarised into a industry research white paper that serves as a practitioners’ guide to the broader tech community in Southeast Asia,
