Session: Chef & Compliance: DevOps Gateway for the Health Care Enterprise
As the technical arm of United Health Group, Optum operates as a large health care enterprise with a significant focus on security and compliance. With other industries being so nimble at adopting DevOps practices, our industry has been slower to see successful transformations. There are layers of regulatory requirements in the health care industry, as well as an absolute expectation of data privacy and security. The health care enterprise focus on risk management instead of velocity has been a consistent barrier to change. One heavy contributor has been the misconception of DevOps and automated pipelines being in opposition to risk mitigation and adherence to regulatory compliance. Follow our journey as we have used some of the recent Chef feature growth in the compliance space to leap forward in getting our organization to reach for fast feedback loops, and a cultural transformation toward continuous delivery.
