Application delivery organizations face significant pressure to rapidly and frequently deliver high quality, secure applications while controlling and even improving cost performance. Continuous Delivery is helping streamline and automate the pipeline — but research indicates it’s no longer just about processes and tools.

“Organizational structures and skills need to change. Bringing together developers, operations, QA and business stakeholders — and facilitating this change is a new and special opportunity falling upon IT executive leadership,” explains Glenn Burnside, Executive Vice President of Operations for Headspring. “This discussion is well-suited for the C-suite needing a business case to illustrate the vast economic benefits of embracing this change.”

Guest presenter, Kurt Bittner, Principal Analyst of Forrester Research, will walk through his findings on how organizations adopting this effective approach are achieving real business results. He will describe how leading IT organizations combine digital business design models, agile delivery, and architecture governance to drive continuous business transformation. At this Lunch & Learn event, executive leadership guests will enjoy an intimate panel on the latest research in “next gen” enterprise practices and be able to chat with their Chicago-area enterprise IT peers. They will also have the opportunity to learn tactical best practices from a variety of available case studies.

Following Kurt, Glenn Burnside will briefly walk through tactical best practices and case studies that support the Forrester research.
