GitOps Driven Deployments on OpenShift

The industry is determined to deliver value ever more rapidly, safely, and securely across software development lifecycle environments. One way to achieve this is through GitOps. In broad terms, GitOps is about applying the Git workflow to operations. We took this idea and narrowed it down to exactly one use case, using Git to drive deployments on OpenShift. In this presentation we’ll walk-through all of the components used to enable GitOps driven deployments all the way from development to production for a real-world enterprise client.
