• Overview

    RegOps Days - banner

    DevOps has taken the software world by storm. It gives organizations practicing agile software development methodology the ability to deliver safely new features at high velocity due to a high degree of automation in their software delivery pipelines.

    Regulation intensive industries have been traditionally slow at adopting agile methodologies due to complex procedures that have to be followed when developing software. However, we start to witness DevOps inspired automation making intakes into these areas.

    Our event provides a venue where practitioners and researchers interact and exchange ideas from their industry or area of expertise, which will facilitate the development and adoption of Regulation Operations (RegOps) best practices.
