Get your weekend back: SaaS for Agile and System Engineering
Date and Time: Tuesday, October 16, 2018 at 9 AM
Abstract: There are a generation of software and system engineers that still maintain the tradition of ‘upgrade’ weekends. For many teams, the dilemma still exists to maintain the status quo or make a shift to modern delivery strategies. The realities of cost of ownership, risk, compliance and control are making it obvious these shifts are necessary.
There are a variety of strategies to deliver software and systems engineering using on-premise, third-party hosting, or Software-as-a-Service. During this session we discuss the transition from ‘traditional’ software development, operations and delivery to cloud-based solutions with impacts on eco-systems, upgrade strategies, and adoption. Evaluating the decision to move to SaaS on the ‘pillars’ of economics, agility, and quality, the IBM speakers will share research, stories, and case studies from 40+ years of cloud sales, marketing and software. Learn the current thinking, success, and myths that surround Software-as-a-Service for Agile and Systems Engineering teams. Hear how you can get your weekend back!
