Summit 2015

You are here


Summit 2015 centered on change and the business technology relationship. We looked at the big picture issues you need to wrap your head around -- creating resilient teams, the hyper-transparency that's brought an epic change in the meaning of security and risk, what your workforce will look like in the not-very-distant future, and the new ways business and IT really can work in sync. Sessions on aligning architects within the organization, a next-generation framework for software development, and serious games gave attendees tools they could put to work right away to achieve organizational goals. Small-group roundtables on project portfolio management, team effectiveness, and agile lifecycle management allowed them to drill down where they needed to.
