DevOps World 2021

09/28/2021 - 09/30/2021

InRule is excited to participate in DevOps World 2021! This year, we’re giving attendees a double dose of Theresa Benson, InRule’s Senior Product Marketing Manager, as attendees will have the opportunity to hear Theresa speak on not one, but two topics.

CI/CD and Compliance in the Age of the Non-Developer

Theresa’s first session will be Wednesday, September 29, 2:30 PM EDT, as part of the CDF Security and Compliance track – where experts share ideas on how to seamlessly integrate security and compliance functions into the CI/CD pipeline.

Fines, reduced productivity and lost revenue and goodwill can drive the cost of non-compliance to nearly three times that of a compliant approach. As more users are empowered to make low-code updates in response to changing regulations, AD&D, DevOps and robust CI/CD pipelines all play a critical role in compliance assurance. In this lightning talk by Theresa Benson, Senior Product Marketing Manager at InRule, attendees will learn:

  • How compliance-related decision automation can be integrated into CI/CD strategy – even when it extends into less technical areas of the organization
  • Proven workflows that public sector agencies can leverage to ensure compliance while meeting the evolving needs of their constituents

To learn more about how InRule provides DevOps for automated decisioning, we encourage you to check out our on-demand webinar. Alternatively, you can also read our blog post, Accelerate Decision DevOps with CI/CD.

Overcome Bias by Asking (and Encouraging) the Uncomfortable Questions

This year’s People and Culture track at DevOps world features impactful conversations around why tech companies should encourage and cultivate a culture of inclusiveness and diversity – and how to do it.  We’re thrilled Theresa’s talk, “Overcome Bias by Asking (and Encouraging) the Uncomfortable Questions” was selected for this year’s event. She’ll be presenting this topic on Thursday, September 30, at 1:00 PM EDT.

AI-powered solutions can introduce bias into outcomes, skewing results and potentially leading to a cascade of negative effects at massive scale. A well-known example: An AI recruiting tool whittles down the number of candidates to consider for an open position, yet its algorithms unintentionally propagate bias into the process, eliminating highly desirable candidates. In this lightning talk by Theresa Benson, Senior Product Marketing Manager at InRule, attendees will learn:

  • How technology can be used to examine and prevent, rather than propagate, bias within AI-powered processes
  • How a culture of diversity and inclusion encourages DevOps teams to ask the uncomfortable questions about why things are done the way they are – both inside and outside of technology.

And, if you just can’t wait to hear Theresa speak, you can catch her on the episode, “Predictive & Declarative AI,” of the How AI Happens podcast, where she discusses how predictions with the why® are crucial for the future of artificial intelligence.
