Best Implementation of DevSecOps

The growing shift-left mindset in DevOps means that the emphasis is now on writing code securely the first time round, instead of treating security as an afterthought at the end of the delivery process. How has security been embedded into the DevOps process, and what has been the effect on business workflows? Judges will expect to see a case study, not a simple marketing description of a DevSecOps tool.

Special Award: Pandemic Performance

The coronavirus pandemic forced companies to adopt agile working methodologies: perhaps the largest external shift to DevOps ever seen. Firms that took the plunge immediately became more competitive than their less-agile rivals, although there were certainly pain points in the transition – whether you were already doing DevOps or not.

This one-time Special Award is for the company who best used DevOps for success in the pandemic: to break down siloes, increase efficiencies and continue operating in the face of the upheaval seen in 2020. Judges will particularly be looking for a description of your business state before, during and after the worst of the pandemic.
