  High quality of service is SOLEIL is a key mission since 2007. Historically operation processes and information systems have been defined mostly on the fly by the different teams all along the synchrotron’s journey. Some major outcomes are a limited cross-teams collaboration and a slow learning organization. Consequently, we are currently implementing a holistic approach with common operational processes upon a shared information system. Our first process is "incident management"; an incident is an unplanned disruption or degradation of service. We have tackled incident management for IT* in 2015, then for the accelerators since January 2018. We are starting to extend it to beamlines since beginning 2019. As a follow-up, we will address the "problem management" process (a problem is the cause of one or more incidents) and the creation of a knowledge base for the operation. By implementing those processes, the culture of continuous improvement is slowly spreading, in particular by driving blameless incident and problem analysis. This paper will present the journey we have been through including our results, improvements and difficulties of implementing this new way of thinking.

  This paper will present the state of of kernel developments in the Tango Controls toolkit and community since the previous ICALEPCS 2017. It will describe what changes have been made over the last 2 years to the Long Term Support (LTS) version, how GitHub has been used to provide Continuous Integration (CI) for all platforms, and prepare the latest source code release. It will present how docker containers are supported, how they are being used for CI and for building digital twins. It will describe the outcome of the kernel code camp(s). Finally it will present how Tango is preparing the next version - V10. The paper will explain why new and old installations can continue profiting from Tango Controls or in other words in Tango "the more things change the better the core concepts become".
