The evolution of a Delivery Pipeline at scale

Kalvermelk 2a

At the Dutch Tax Office we’re developing a few hundred applications to collect taxes, to support customs,  and to payout allowances. The social impact and the political aspects are major concerns on how we organize our processes. We’re currently in the middle of a journey implementing CICD to allow the business to be more agile and in-control when responding to (political) change.
At the Dutch Tax Office, we have a very diverse technical landscape with (among others) more than 80 Java teams. We have implemented a lot of CI practices to allow better controlled delivery of software and we are firmly underway in scaling our solutions to support a more CD approach. And while we experience technical challenges, Continuous Delvery is more about cultural and organizational change.

In this session we’d like to share our experiences, motivations, decisions and lessons learned from this continuous,challenging but interesting journey.
