In 2011, Marc Andreessen authored his seminal essay on Why Software is Eating the World. Since that time, organizations have wrestled with introducing digital capabilities into traditional functions. Suncor is undergoing a similar journey, and we're privileged to share one of our examples. Our Mining Maintenance operations are laden with manual processes that must interface with numerous business systems. Yet, within these manual processes, Suncor has opportunities to bring automation, dynamic integration across several systems, and incrementally bring value to our operators.

In our virtual presentation, a trio of speakers will summarize how DevOps automation brings value to a traditionally manual area of our business; mining maintenance. To best set the stage for a deeper understanding, our Senior Vice-President will describe the Suncor enterprise, its strategic priorities, and how it is structured to realize these objectives. This understanding will also include explaining the underlying motivations behind our enterprise-wide transformation.

Next, our Director of Mining Maintenance (yes, the business!) will introduce you to mining maintenance and why it is a vital aspect of our business. She will lay out Digital Shop Bay management vision and how it is transforming how maintenance operations. She will describe her own introduction to DevOps and how it is being used to accecerate value delivery to Suncor in a close collaboration between business and IT.

Finally, our Director of DevOps and Delivery Services will summarize the challenges that we faced (and continue to face) with introducing DevOps automation into the enterprise and how we are overcoming these obstacles.

We're looking forward to sharing our journey of value acceleration and DevOps automation with you.
