close Fielding Your Vendor Dream Team: MoneyBall for Software

Info-Tech Research Group Inc. - Director, Commercial Strategy

Each year, organizations cumulatively spend nearly 1 trillion dollars on enterprise software & services, and that number is rapidly increasing.

Worse, organizations are extremely likely to renew their software regardless of whether they are satisfied with it.

In this session we will share analytical insights from over 5000 in-depth enterprise software reviews we’ve collected from IT and business leaders to help you understand how you can more effectively select and manage enterprise software, and save money while doing it. Learn what processes are most and least effective, and where the risks are.

Hint: it’s not where you think.

close Technology Development at Scale: a LeSS Overview

Goldline LLC - Chief Information Officer

Traditional sequential-lifecycle application development doesn’t work well.  Since 2001, Agile development and Scrum in particular have revolutionized software development.  LeSS is a scaling framework that finds the sweet spot between defined concrete elements and empirical process control.  LeSS as a framework is more than a set of principles and experiments. It also provides a framework with rules. The LeSS Rules define what is LeSS (and what isn’t) and they provide a concrete framework for applying LeSS.

KEY TAKEAWAYS
  • LeSS Principles
  • A Framework that Focuses on Customer Value and Rapid Innovation
  • Organizational Impact of Agile at Scale

ATTENDEES

Over the year’s we’ve help thousands of senior-level IT executives connect with peers in different industries to discuss their top-of-mind directives. Delegates from the 2017 series included:

Attendee Testimonials

"The format of the sessions and one-on-one meeting with vendors was a very effective use of my time. The best part of the event is the experts from various areas of information security and solution providers under one roof. It provided an opportunity to learn in a succinct manner without spending too many days out of the office."

"CIO VISIONS is time well spent. In the office, I often don't have time to answer all the emails I received from vendors and then find out which one is the right fit for what I need. The personalized research meeting format allows me to have conversations with vendors that I currently have initiatives for, so the conversations with them are very productive. The sessions are in line with current industry and the networking experience with industry peers is phenomenal!"

"As CIOs we understand the need to network and learn from our peers and experts in the market place. The good news is that there are a plethora of opportunities for us to attend CIO centric events, but sadly, therein lies the difficulty. We have limited time and need to select the events that help us provide the best technological guidance to the enterprises we serve. Having served on many panels and chaired many sessions across many of these events, I have narrowed down the events I attend to a handful. CIO VISIONS is one of them. "

"CIO VISIONS Mid-Marekt is an excellent event for IT leaders to connect, network and discuss the current state of IT. With practitioners providing the presentations and key talks, this is a very practical and "real" event for the attendees."
