DevOps Teams, Good or Bad?

This talk will describe the approach used at Lloyds Banking Group to bring DevOps to life across our enterprise. We will discuss the many forms that “DevOps Teams” take and will give our view on what has worked for us, and what has not, and what we see across the industry. We will also share our nirvana state and how we intend to get there.
