    Every successful business is powered by legacy technology and applications which need to evolve. Vendors, Consultants and New Tech Enthusiasts bemoan technical debt and have the answer – Switch to Our Technology, Outsource, Use a New Language/Platform. Each of these options comes with major business and technical risks and expenses, along with long uncertain delivery dates.

    In this talk we describe an alternative lean approach to legacy evolution that focuses on high value near-term tactical business and technical innovations. We focus on data rather than code. Code has been the primary focus for traditional legacy approaches. We illustrate common patterns for identifying high return opportunities and techniques for high payback. We discuss risk mitigation and management buy-in for innovative approaches.

    Evan Leybourn - Certain Uncertainty (Sydney)

    60 Mins
    Workshop
    Advanced

    The world is changing more rapidly than ever before and organisations of every size are struggling to remain relevant in the eyes of their customers. The simple fact that the average lifespan of a company has decreased by more than 50 years in the last century demonstrates that not all organisations are prepared for this new reality. It is only high-performing, adaptable and agile organisations that will leverage, lead and thrive in this ambiguous and unpredictable market. We call this business agility.

    The problem with a statement like that is that there is no common definition of what business agility means. And that’s actually a good thing. In a dynamic and changing market trying to lock it down will defeat the very advantage it brings. Instead, I want you to start thinking of business agility as the common thread. An adaptable and sustainable narrative that binds & guides, rather than directs, us into the uncertain future.

    This talk will share the state of business agility around the world. We’ll look at the Domains of Business Agility, interspersed with case studies from 4 multinational organisation in both the banking and utilities sector.

    Eugenia Cheng - Category Theory and Life (Brisbane)

    60 Mins
    Workshop
    Advanced

    Category theory can be thought of as being “very abstract algebra”. It is thought of as “too abstract” by some people, and as “abstract nonsense” by some others. In this talk I will show that while it is abstract, it is far from being nonsense. I will argue that the abstraction has a purpose and that broad applicability is one of the powerful consequences. To demonstrate this, I will show how I apply concepts of category theory to important questions of life such as prejudice, privilege, blame and responsibility. I will introduce the category theory concepts from scratch so no prior knowledge is needed. These concepts will include objects and morphisms, isomorphisms and universal properties.
