Breakout Session

How SiriusXM used Readiness Days to Launch its Next-gen Streaming App to 34 million Subscribers

The engineering team at SiriusXM, North America’s leading audio entertainment company, was tasked with launching a next-gen streaming platform. These new digital capabilities were slated to replace our long-term heritage systems and deliver an upgraded, reliable audio experience to 34 million subscribers. And we were given an ambitious deadline: just one year!

 

I’m Rachel Uhrig, VP of Engineering Excellence at SiriusXM. I’d like to share how my team developed a reliability engineering program that ensured a successful product launch, and still persists post-launch. The program included monthly readiness days where hundreds of engineers and 7 organizational units across nine time zones performed live chaos testing. You’ll learn how building a culture of reliability can reduce risks when launching your own products, and improve reliability for the ones that are already in production.
