Enterprise Agility a myth
Prasad
Prasad

A typical CIO of a large IT enterprise handle 4000 Applications of all types like Custom applications, Packaged Application, Legacy products etc..  Most of these applications are build using huge and heterogeneous partner ecosystem.  Most of these applications are to bring efficiency and effectiveness to internal employees in Marketing, Supply chain, Finance and HR.  As natural market dynamics all these business users are in driving a transformation in their business model. This in-turn is creating a big ask for a CIO to be relevant and be responsive.

It is very interesting to note 1/3 of IT budget is not coming to CIO, it is directly going to business... How Agility can help CIOs bring back the confidence of business and be in lime light? Is Agility at Enterprise is possible? How far it is possible? How the typical journey looks like?

This session is going bring point of views of various Enterprise IT transformation assignment which I am part of

Getting A Partner To Adopt Agile
Sunil Mundra
Sunil Mundra

Due to the business benefits which accrue from Agile, clients are demanding their IT Departments/Partners to adopt Agile. It is quite common to find a situation where the client has adopted Agile, but its Partner/Vendor has not.

This talk is based on my consulting engagement with a client who had adopted Agile and their partner had not, and the client wanted the partner to Adopt Agile.

The talk will cover the challenges encountered in getting the partner to adopt Agile, especially given the wide difference in cultures of both orrganizations and also the organizations being located in different continents. The talk will also cover the learnings from this journey.
