Thought Leadership Webinar Series Helps Businesses Scale Agile Initiatives Faster, Easier and Smarter

ATLANTA, Feb. 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- VersionOne, recognized by agile practitioners as the leader in agile application lifecycle management (ALM) software solutions, announced today a free, two-part #AgileLIVE webinar series focused on helping businesses scale their agile initiatives beyond the team level to the program and portfolio levels. The webinars will be held on February 19 and February 26, from Noon-1:00 pm Eastern.

Register for the webinar series here. Everyone who registers will also receive a link to the recordings.

The first webinar on February 19 will feature Agile Coaches Dave Gunther and Mike McLaughlin, who will explore the five key questions organizations need to consider when scaling agile to the program and portfolio levels including:

  • How should we organize?
  • How will we communicate?
  • How, what and where will we prioritize?
  • How can we facilitate decisions and plan effectively?
  • How can we deliver predictably at scale?

The second webinar on February 26 will feature Product Evangelist Andy Powell, who will discuss how the VersionOne® enterprise agile ALM platform can help: 

  • Capture and visualize project roadmaps
  • Track and manage initiatives through to implementation
  • Coordinate multiple cross-functional teams
  • Perform advanced analysis on projects
  • Enable enterprise collaboration

This webinar series is for organizations looking to maximize the impact of agile beyond the team level to the program and portfolio levels. While there are frameworks developing to address this, such as Scaled Agile Framework® (SAFe™), different organizations may have specific challenges that require deliberate attention to change and coordination.

"We are very excited to launch our 2014 AgileLIVE webinar series featuring the industry's best and brightest thought leaders," said VersionOne President and CEO Robert Holler. "In addition to these first two webinars, some of the other topics will include agile metrics, team success, DevOps and product discovery. Stay tuned for more information."

"Storpool does only block-level storage so we do one thing extremely well. The growth in data is what drives the move to software-defined technologies in general and software-defined storage," explained Boyan Ivanov, CEO and co-founder at StorPool, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 16th Cloud Expo, held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City.
A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage. It has become clear that we'll need much higher efficiency user experiences that can allow us to more easily and scalably work with the thousands of devices that will soon be in each of our lives. Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, which can process our conversational commands and orchestrate the outcomes we request across our personal and professional realm of connected devices.
While some developers care passionately about how data centers and clouds are architected, for most, it is only the end result that matters. To the majority of companies, technology exists to solve a business problem, and only delivers value when it is solving that problem. 2017 brings the mainstream adoption of containers for production workloads. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Ben McCormack, VP of Operations at Evernote, discussed how data centers of the future will be managed, how the public cloud best suits your organization, and what the future holds for operations and infrastructure engineers in a post-container world. Is a serverless world inevitable?
ChatOps is an emerging topic that has led to the wide availability of integrations between group chat and various other tools/platforms. Currently, HipChat is an extremely powerful collaboration platform due to the various ChatOps integrations that are available. However, DevOps automation can involve orchestration and complex workflows. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Himanshu Chhetri, CTO at Addteq, will cover practical examples and use cases such as self-provisioning infrastructure/applications, self-remediation workflows, integrating monitoring and complimenting integrations between Atlassian tools and other top tools in the industry.
As DevOps methodologies expand their reach across the enterprise, organizations face the daunting challenge of adapting related cloud strategies to ensure optimal alignment, from managing complexity to ensuring proper governance. How can culture, automation, legacy apps and even budget be reexamined to enable this ongoing shift within the modern software factory? In her Day 2 Keynote at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Aruna Ravichandran, VP, DevOps Solutions Marketing, CA Technologies, was joined by a panel of industry experts and real-world practitioners who shared their insight into an emerging set of best practices that lie at the heart of today's digital transformation.
