ALTEN Nederland is proud to announce the appointment of Frank Faber to be DASA’s (DevOps Agile Skills Association) newest Global Ambassador. DASA has Ambassadors on the ground in seven countries, such as Australia, Finland, Germany, India, Mexico and Poland.
“As DASA Forerunner member ALTEN is happy to have our DevOps consultant Frank Faber become the first DASA global Ambassador for Testing. Frank has gained excellent experience working with several Agile, DevOps teams. He has successfully implemented test strategies, with a focus on input and automation. He understands the value of DevOps and the importance of Testers and other subject matter experts to evolve their skills and broaden their knowledge to work effectively in a DevOps team. We plan to work closely with DASA to help advance the awareness of DevOps both here in the Netherlands with local DevOps Meet Ups and events as well as support Frank in his role as global DASA Global Ambassador”, says Edo van der Post, Technical Manager, ALTEN.
ALTEN has been active in the DevOps environments for years. As T-Shaped consultants, our consultants know how they can contribute to the success of DevOps. They work from their own expertise, but they also take steps outside their own field. The consultants know the tooling that is needed to get the automation done. In addition, the ALTEN Academy offers several training courses to improve knowledge and mindsets. And also offers The Phoenix Project – a DevOps Simulation Game to organizations.
A key focus area for DASA has been to think globally and act locally. Their global members-driven community allows them to be present in more than 49 countries across the globe. That’s why they launched their DASA Ambassador program in October of 2017. Also, four of those are also Global Ambassador’s traveling the world and evangelizing DevOps and DASA’s focus on skill and knowledge development.
“One of the things, that I feel grateful for everyday is the caliber of companies we have the privilege of working with like ALTEN, as innovators and thought leaders they invest their time and resources to help build and grow awareness in the field of IT and share the importance of transitioning to a digital economy. When you speak with Frank or Edo, you quickly realize how passionate they are about helping their clients, colleagues, and others understand how pivotal it is to embrace new skills and ways of working to deliver value to their customers” says, Deborah Burton, Managing Director of DASA.
