DevOps can help government organizations more quickly react to citizen needs for digital applications and systems. But the really great news is it can also help organizations reduce costs – an increasingly critical consideration given post-COVID budget restraints.
Join Government Technology and experts from GitLab December 10 at 10:00am PT/1:00pm ET for a special 30-minute Lunch and Learn webinar in which we explore how DevOps can help government organizations save money by accelerating the speed of delivery, decreasing code flaws, and improving time-to-market.

We’ll also discuss:
• Best practices for doing DevOps efficiently and cost effectively
• How using a single application to manage the entire DevOps lifecycle can provide your organization a more simplified, visible and secure solution
• Strategies to help you reduce costs and time spent across each phase of the entire DevOps lifecycle
