How Agile and DevOps Can Transform Your Organization
Overview: Considering ways to transform your business for today’s digital world?
Chris O’Malley shares the steps you need to take now.
The opportunity to learn valuable lessons about transforming businesses in today’s digital world will be shared at GSE Netherlands on Thursday, November 21. As keynote speaker, Compuware CEO Chris O’Malley will talk about his approach to transforming enterprises and will address the topic, “Actionable Steps to Make Agile and DevOps Work Across the Enterprise: What Are You Waiting For?”
A compelling invitation
Chris will share his dynamic insights along with customer case studies and real-world steps that can help enterprise IT embrace a DevOps journey, rather than fear it. He’ll provide proof, using the examples of Compuware and its customers, that a mainstreamed mainframe thrives in a dynamic culture with Agile methods, an integrated DevOps toolchain and unyielding continuous improvement.
He’ll also share the three simple but enormously effective steps an enterprise must take in order to break the chains of yesterday’s business model, while embracing a new mindset and a world of opportunities. Finally, he’ll speak to the absolute importance of a customer-first mindset, not just for a thriving business, but as inspiration to innovate.
A call for change
Today, every company is a software company, relying on IT to deliver digital experiences that delight customers. Successful companies are using Agile and DevOps practices to enable faster delivery, higher quality and lower risk, to meet rising customer expectations. In contrast to these success stories are the holdout mainframe organizations that mistakenly believe that transformative change is burdensome and choose to implement these practices on a smaller scale, or worse, continue with the status quo.
Is your company ready to thrive and not simply survive? Does your company have the growth mindset which is necessary to transform your business now? Chris will illustrate how Compuware made the transformation and what steps organizations need to take to continuously improving mainframe software delivery quality, velocity and efficiency.
A bonus opportunity
In addition to hearing Chris as the keynote speaker, you won’t want to miss Kim Mortensen’s breakout session on ways to build in efficiencies in batch processing in “Pssst…BATCH… Do You Remember…?”
Kim will show how Compuware ThruPut Manager is designed to help automate and prepare jobs for effective execution and reduced manual intervention. A Batch Maturity model will be shared along with a demonstration of ThruPut Manager.
