Mattermost CTO Corey Hulen talks ChatOps, DevOps at the 2018 Open Source Strategy Forum

Mattermost was thrilled to be a part of the 2018 Open Source Strategy Forum, which brought together nearly 300 professionals from the world’s leading banks, asset management firms, hedge funds, and technology companies.

The event, which was presented by FINOS, took place in London on November 14 and 15.

Mattermost CTO and Co-Founder Corey Hulen was on hand to explore how today’s leading organizations are increasingly adopting ChatOps workflows using open source software.

Watch the talk from Open Source Strategy Forum

Email overload, distributed teams and excessive meetings have caused many organizations to move their DevOps teams to messaging platforms and thus adopt ChatOps workflows. With thousands of open source installs and hundreds of customer implementations, we have a few lessons to share on interesting DevOps workflows, how incidents can be effectively communicated across distributed teams and what messaging in secure and regulated environments should look like. The main takeaway? Open source software and open APIs give organizations the freedom to adjust their communications infrastructure to their specific needs and transition successfully to ChatOps.

Check out Corey’s full presentation, Lessons Learned Implementing ChatOps (DevOps + Messaging) at Large Enterprises, below. The talk includes case studies to demonstrate how a leading Silicon Valley decacorn, a major U.S. federal agency, and two of the 10 largest investment banks in the world use ChatOps in their organizations.
