Customer-obsessed organizations are accelerating their race to digital in order to win new customers and retain existing ones. A crucial element of this imperative is to transform their software delivery processes to create high-value experiences for customers, employees, and partners. Forrester Research shows there are four key steps to delivering software faster: identify improvement opportunities, implement change, deliver results, and measure impact, then repeat.
Join guest speakers Chris Condo (Senior Analyst, Forrester), Aloisio Rocha (Agile Product Owner, NetEnt), Manish Aggarwal (Software Engineering Manager, Intel), Gary McKay (Scrum Master, Somos), and Alan Shimel (DevOps.com), as they discuss:
- How deployment success directly correlates with business value,
- How Test Automation shortens cycle times to improve DevOps success, and,
- How moving to microservices drives DevOps culture in a mainframe world.
Attendees will receive a complimentary copy of The Forrester Wave™: Continuous Delivery And Release Automation (CDRA), Q3 2017 report.
