    • Agile Capitalization for Greater Business Value - 1PDU Agile Capitalization for Greater Business Value - 1PDU Pat Reed, Agile Alliance Director and Catherine Connor, Portfolio Agility Solutions Specialist at CA Recorded: Apr 7 2016 6:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    • With disruptive technology advances, software assets play an increasingly important role in creating a competitive advantage. It’s time for organizations to recognize and manage business software as a strategic corporate asset. To keep up with the speed of business, companies turn to agile practices to deliver better customer value faster. Challenge: agile software development is too often misunderstood and misreported, impacting taxation, higher volatility in Profit and Loss (P&L) statements, and dramatic, unnecessary staff cuts in an economy where talent retention is paramount to foster innovation. To avoid those negative implications, companies can evolve their financial reporting practices to leverage the financial advantage of agile so they can benefit from the significantly increased tax savings and investor interest associated with agile capitalization. This session will unravel the benefits of agile capitalization and explain how to appropriately interpret and apply generally accepted accounting standard (GAAP SOP 98-1 and ASC 350-40) so your organization can increase its agile adoption to deliver more business value faster to customers.

      This event qualifies for 1 Professional Development Unit (PDU credit).

    • OBJEKTspektrum Webinar: Qualitätsmanagement goes Agile OBJEKTspektrum Webinar: Qualitätsmanagement goes Agile Jutta Eckstein, Business & Agile Coach & Dirk Hedderich, Solution Consultant, HPE Software Solution Area (ADM) Recorded: Apr 18 2016 7:30 am UTC 51 mins
    • Thema 1 – by Jutta Eckstein
      Gemeinsame Verantwortung für Qualität als Erfolgsfaktor agiler Projekte
      Um die heutige Forderung -bedingt durch das überlebenswichtige Time-to-Market- nach angemessener Qualität zu erfüllen, muss Qualitätsmanagement als Kompetenz im Unternehmen auf allen Ebenen verankert werden. Folglich hilft bei der Integration der Softwareentwicklung in die Geschäftsprozesse eines Unternehmens die "Silo-Denke" nicht weiter, das heißt auch Qualitätsmanagement muss als gemeinsame Verantwortung über den gesamten Entwicklungsprozess verstanden werden. Agilität kann dazu beitragen, dies im Unternehmen zu implementieren, wenn sie als Teil einer größeren Entwicklung gesehen wird, bei welcher es darum geht mehr Verantwortung zu übernehmen, eine höhere soziale Kompetenz einzufordern sowie die Idee der lernenden Organisation als Schlüssel zum Erfolg zu sehen.

      Thema 2 – by Dirk Hedderich
      Modern Quality Management goes agile - Wie verändert Agilität das Qualitätsmanagement?
      "Softwaretester? Brauchen wir nicht - wir sind doch jetzt agil!" - Ganz so einfach ist es dann vielleicht doch nicht, wenn Qualitätsmanagement und Agilität aufeinander treffen. In den letzten Jahren hat sich das Software-Qualitätsmanagement in kleinen Schritten weiterentwickelt. Gleichzeitig haben aber besonders agile Entwicklungsmethoden die Softwareentwicklung abrupt verändert und DevOps bzw. Continuous Integration (CI) - Ansätze finden mehr und mehr Einzug in Unternehmen. In diesem Webinar wird dargestellt, wie agiles Qualitätsmanagement diese Veränderungen aufnimmt, integriert und mit modernen Entwicklungsmethoden Hand in Hand geht. Dabei wird auch ein erster exklusiver Einblick in HPE NextGen ALM gewährt - eine disruptive Innovation für das Modern Quality Management, welche Testmanagement, Agile, DevOps und Continuous Integration in einer Plattform integriert.

    • Universal Agile Thinking – Supporting the Organization Universal Agile Thinking – Supporting the Organization Larry Cooper, Senior Partner, BSSNexus Global Inc & Jen Stone, formerly Managing Director, International Consortium for Agile Recorded: Oct 9 2013 6:00 pm UTC 49 mins
    • Agile is not new. US rocket scientists applied incremental design and development methods in the 1950’s and IBM taught incremental practices in Los Angeles in the early 1960’s. Despite its extensive history, many people think Agile started with the Agile Manifesto in 2001. The Manifesto’s emphasis on software development also created the misconception that Agile is limited to the software development lifecycle. While some practitioners focus solely on Agile methods, others perceive that Agile’s real value is in the ability of its principles to change our thinking and behaviors. For a growing number of people and the organizations to which they belong, Agile is a strategy that can be successfully applied to any context or industry in any part of any organization.

      In this webinar, we will review the broad origins of Agile, examine how Agile is permeating all facets of the organization, and consider the far-reaching implications of Agile within ITSM in particular. We will also explore the characteristics of an Agile organization, with an eye towards what needs to change in Agile IT organizations (both in Dev and Ops) by way of focusing on such technical aspects as how to capitalize software product development and how we can make Supplier Management more Agile.

      Learning Outcomes - attendees will be able to:
      - Identify the broad origins of Agile in order to place its development within a larger historical context
      - Identify how Agile is beginning to permeate all facets of organizations so they can begin planning interactions that take into account Agile’s broader, interconnected reach within their own organizations
      - Analyze the implications of Agile within IT and IT Service Management so they can adjust their methodologies to take advantage of its impacts
      - Assess what Agile means to software product development and Supplier Management in particular in order to begin to design successful approaches to their technical needs

    • Agile and Service Virtualization—coming together for faster software delivery Agile and Service Virtualization—coming together for faster software delivery Suzette Johnson, Agile Center of Excellent Lead, Northrop Grumman, Ferhan Kilical, Sr Product Marketing Manager, HP Software Recorded: Dec 4 2013 8:00 pm UTC 34 mins
    • In an effort to gain speed and agility, many companies have adopted composite application development approaches in addition to the rapid adoption of Agile methodology in development teams. But while Agile promises speed, it does not guarantee high quality – which is critical to achieving business goals. The combination of Agile development in faster iterations along with componentized service-based applications promises significant breakthroughs in velocity. But it also brings a whole new set of challenges through dependencies, causing significant project delays and failures as dependencies rapidly turn into constraints. The answer lies in a new software capability known as Service Virtualization.

      Attend this Web Event to learn about the concept and value of Service Virtualization and how it can eliminate constraints throughout the Agile application development process. You’ll hear about:

      • The Agile approach and the importance of test and development teamwork
      • What types of impediments and constraints emerge with Agile and composite application architecture
      • How to eliminate these constraints in test and development with Service Virtualization
      • The ROI of implementing Service Virtualization

    • Why doesn’t agile always work? Why doesn’t agile always work? Kirsteen King. Agile Programme Manager, BrightTALK Recorded: Mar 7 2013 4:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    • Some teams using agile report an increase in productivity of 200-400% but more than 70% of agile teams fail in their goals. Why is that? The presentation will look at some of the things that I think make a team work, and what are the common factors that lead teams to be unsuccessful. Agile is in theory so easy - so why is it so hard to get right?

      Kirsteen has been working in agile teams for 10 years, the majority of which were at the BBC. From a project manager to scrum master to programme and then ultimately portfolio manager for a large team which included iPlayer, Radio and Music, TV Platforms, some mobile and some social work. As a result she has been exposed to a variety of projects and methodologies and implementations around agile.

      Now at BrightTALK, Kirsteen is programme managing the technical team, developing the team’s agile processes.

      BrightTALK was founded in 2002 and we are providers of webinar and live video solutions. We have built our own automated webinar platform that allows business users to create and run their own live and recorded webinars and live events. This platform was launched in September 2008 and is now used by hundreds of content creators reaching thousands of users every day across a range of B2B sectors

    • Breaking Through Your Data Bottleneck with Agile ETL Breaking Through Your Data Bottleneck with Agile ETL Mark Marinelli, CTO, Lavastorm Recorded: Apr 7 2016 3:00 pm UTC 32 mins
    • Is your access to data via ETL channels creating a bottleneck in your business? Traditional ETL tools are exceedingly good at moving large quantities of data from one place to another repeatedly, reliably, and efficiently. For a large class of problems, where time-to-value is critical and applications need to be flexible as business requirements change, these ETL tools and waterfall projects are not a viable solution.

      Alternative technologies are now available which marry self-service data preparation with enterprise data management capabilities to accelerate value delivery and accommodate change, without reducing the scale, scope, and rigor of data analysis.

      Combined with new skills and new ways of thinking about data discovery, these new tools power a new agile process which yields more accurate results more quickly, moving beyond the traditional ETL bottleneck to an environment of continuous value delivery.

      In this webinar you will learn:
      • Where traditional ETL is and isn’t well suited to data analysis and BI projects
      • The requirements for Agile ETL - people, processes, and tools
      • How an agile approach can generate ROI more quickly, and with more trusted results
      • How agile ETL lays the foundation for more flexible, responsive data analysis in the future, as business context and systems change

    • Driving business innovation by leveraging Agile Quality Lifecycle strategies Driving business innovation by leveraging Agile Quality Lifecycle strategies Melinda Ballou, IDC and Tye Davis, HP Software Recorded: Jun 18 2015 5:00 pm UTC 36 mins
    • Software drives business optimization, and agile software development approaches help drive innovation. Yet managing disparate applications deployed across a range of platforms without consistent agile quality strategies is costly, inefficient, and inherently risky. Effective approaches to agile quality are becoming increasingly vital to success.

      Agile development provides tremendous opportunities for efficient, adaptive code creation, yet organizational strategies to manage code quality and agile testing as part of an agile lifecycle remain woefully inadequate. In addition, as mobile, cloud, and social platforms themselves are evolving at an agile pace, complexity increases, adding further quality challenges.

      Join IDC analyst Melinda Ballou as she discusses business and development strategies to leverage an agile quality community culture, agile techniques, and automation as the complex sourcing of software creation evolves.

      Melinda will:
      • discuss the benefits and challenges of agile quality adoption
      • explain how agile quality and related lifecycle approaches enable speedier and collaborative code creation
      • provide visibility into software assets that improve software development and business adaptability

    • A 3-step agile approach to mobilize, engage and develop high-performing teams A 3-step agile approach to mobilize, engage and develop high-performing teams Charlotte Goudreault and Claude Emond Recorded: May 19 2016 8:00 pm UTC 51 mins
    • Traditional project management approaches focus on measuring performance in terms of respecting time and cost estimates. Those measures confirm performance after the fact and do not address the main driver of project success: engaged high-performing teams.

      This webinar, co-hosted by Charlotte Goudreault and Claude Emond, will present the link between continuously engaged teams, superior performance and successful high value project delivery, as well as explain how agile values, principles and tools can help build and develop continuously engaged, high-performing project teams.

      Charlotte and Claude will also present and demonstrate, using real project data, a simple 3-step approach, based on agile techniques and inspired by their own experiences in projects, that will help you to quickly mobilize your teams (any types of teams, project-oriented or production-oriented) and keep them engaged and high-performing.

      Those who attend the webinar will be given access to a pdf copy of the presentation slides as well as to a copy of an Excel template that can be used as a support tool to monitor and improve team engagement.

    • Are you an Agile Project Manager or an Agile Project Leader? Are you an Agile Project Manager or an Agile Project Leader? Lawrence (Larry Cooper) Recorded: Mar 1 2016 5:00 pm UTC 55 mins
    • As Agile and agile thinking has continued to gain traction in organizations beyond the software development teams, project managers are left wondering what it all means to them.

      Some Agile practitioners promote the idea the PMs are no longer needed once you make the transition to using a practice such as Scrum. Does this mean that the PM role will become obsolete in Agile organizations? Or does it mean that the role of traditional project manager needs to transform to being a agile project leader?

      If you are a PM in an organization making the transition to Agile, come find out what it means to you and what you need to do start the transformation to becoming an Agile Project Leader.

    • Next Level Agile Next Level Agile Ryan Polk, VP of Products, Rally Recorded: Sep 2 2015 3:00 pm UTC 58 mins
    • Agile was first adopted at the team level: groups of 7 plus or minus 2 people embracing agile practices. But in reality, this is not how most enterprise software is delivered. Enterprise software depends on multiple teams working toward common objectives. Most enterprise companies are just beginning to harness agile at this level.

      With this next level comes a new focus on agile adoption patterns and a back-to-basics approach. Companies adopting agile must come to grips with the reality that successful agile at scale requires hard organizational choices. Companies willing to go “all-in” are reaping immense rewards, including the ones who have been agile for many years.

      You’ll leave this webinar knowing:

      -How Agile at scale is different from team-level Agile
      -Why focusing on strong Agile basics is key to scaling Agile
      -Why connecting delivery to strategy is essential in realizing the promise of Agile
      -Where you are in your Agile journey, and what to do next
      -How to identify trouble spots and fix them
