So, you have decided to migrate your organization's deployment platform over to Cloud Foundry. Next step is to roll up your sleeves and deep dive into the migration and setup of PCF with your team. But wait, who should be on that team? How do you make sure you have the the right skills on the team? How should this team work and where does its responsibility start and end? What does it mean to have an Agile operations team? And why are we suddenly talking about SLOs and SLIs, and not SLAs anymore?

In this talk, we will tell our story about setting up a brand new CloudOps team in a large enterprise and how we were able to answer the questions above. We will provide a glimpse into our daily routines, team size, room setup, and project and product organization. If you want to know how to transform a traditional platform operations to a platform product team, this will be your chance.
