2020 Predictions: Everything As Code

In week one of our 2020 Predictions Series, Derek Brost, InterVision’s Director of Professional Services – Security and Compliance, joins Jeff Ton, SVP of Product Development and Strategic Alliances, to discuss the push toward “Everything As Code.”  Jeff and Derek dive into the why behind this transformation in the technology community and how embracing this idea is shaping IT teams, whether that be from a workflow standpoint, a shift in the talent acquisition process or even the overall culture. While this shift brings about a distinct learning curve, an advantage Derek points out, is that “this is another way to break that wall down between developer groups and operations groups.”
