Course Detail

Interactive DevOps Simulation

DevOps Simulation 


The DevOps simulation is a highly interactive experiential workshop designed to demonstrate the business value and positive impact of a DevOps approach.

It's a half-day, role-based workshop focused on the software development and deployment lifecycle. It's highly realistic and leverages game dynamics to empower cross-functional teams with a shared vision of successful DevOps practices.

Participants from a variety of disciplines - including business, development, test, QA, and operations - are immersed into a simulated environment whereby they are challenged to release new products whilst internal and external forces continually change. This realistic approach delivers a level of tension and excitement that creates an 'ah-ha!' moment for everyone involved.


The session is broken down into three rounds, allowing participants to see the difference a DevOps approach can make incrementally.

Round ONE - Chaos

Participants are quickly immersed into a real life complex application development scenario. Chaos ensues, with poor communication and a lack of collaboration resulting in poor business results, higher development costs, longer testing times and more. As a result, opportunities are lost and revenues are negatively impacted. Following the first round, a review is facilitated to identify the issues and to discuss how a DevOps approach could drive improvement.

Round TWO - Improved

Round 2 builds upon the learning outcomes from the previous round and introduces processes such as Service Virtualization, Minimum Viable Product iterations, Fail Faster and more. This drives maturity and empowers the teams towards automation, building a more collaborative culture, and ultimately improved business results.

Round THREE - Optimized

Building on the learning outcomes of Round 1 and 2, participants learn that instilling a DevOps culture is key to achieving operational excellence. Participants experience a pronounced shift in the reduction of development times and the number of errors each application had before reaching operations. Through collaboration, streamlining, automation and repeatable practices, participants realize improved ROI and optimized business results.

What Clients Say...

Real life examples from the instructor’s experience base made ITIL real for me.

Karl B. NASA

Looking to get the ITIL V3 Foundations certification? Look no further than Beyond20. I was completely satisfied with their methods, curriculum, and real world knowledge. Their 3-day course completely prepared me for the certification test. Give them a try; I’m sure you will agree.

Denis D. Cisco Systems

Great instructor - really helped us to understand ITIL from the bottom up!

Lawrence S. US Dept of State

Using his diverse IT background, [the instructor] had the unique ability to leverage experiences of the group to create practical scenarios that enforce ITIL training objectives. This approach provides real-world examples of how ITIL best practices are applied and reinforces the training material. Highly Recommended!

Mark W. Wells Fargo Bank

I recently took an ITIL Training course with Beyond20 and found their teaching method to be very helpful. As was guaranteed by Beyond20, I passed the certification exam at the end of the course. The instructor was extremely knowledgeable of ITSM and had relevant industry experience. I would highly recommend Beyond20. 

Damien S. Sprint Nextel

The instructor knew his stuff!  The materials were well designed and the course was well paced and very appropriate for our group.
