overview

Since the publication in 2001, of the then controversial document The Agile Manifesto , organisations have adopted many of the Agilerecommendations for improvedways of meeting deadlines and satisfying customers. While a few organisations are still followers of the traditional waterfall method of practice, most others have embraced the agile as “the new normal”.

Now, over a decade and ahalf later, let us see how much of the adoptions of these core statements have been achieved and helped establishing a faster and practical way of getting things done.

“Individuals and interactions over process and tools;

Working software over comprehensive documentation;

Customer collaboration over contract negotiation;

Responding to change over following a plan”

DevOps too is an enterprise capability and as the name suggests is a development and operation-based way of working that includes stakeholders, business owners, architecture, design, development, quality assurance, operations, security, partners and suppliers.

The Agile and DevOps conference in Brisbane, Australia on Aug 31st, 2018 will feature speaker presentations and discussion sessions covering Agile and DevOps via experience sharing and real life scenarios.

speakers

The conference targets to feature presentation and discussion sessions by recognized thought-leaders addressing the actual developments and trends in Agile & DevOps  highlighting implementation challenges and their solutions. The conference presentations by expert speakers will make it easier to understand how Agile & DevOps  can successfully bring cross-functional business units together for delivering business results speedily in the Agile environment.

Registration and Seating
Scaling Agile - Bejoy Jaison, Iteration Manager, Suncorp Group
Infrastructure-as-code (IaC) is now a commodity offering in public cloud, but what can organisations do when their use of cloud is restricted? Many large organisations are unable to adopt public cloud offerings due to constraints such as regulatory controls. I will share a story of how a heavily regulated organisation was able to transform their traditional operations practices into a self-service infrastructure-as-code offering, all with their own on-premise data centres. From a grass-roots movement through to gaining and maintaining management support, this talk will cover the highlights of how the initiative was started and scaled, including some tough lessons learned through the process - Shaw Innes, Co-Founder, Arkava
How many of us has been there: Along comes typical Project Management and this innocent question making every Scrum Master cringe: “When will these 45.7 features be done by?" followed by "Oh, and while you are at it, what will it cost me in total?”. Adapting Agile to a world of Project and endless “total cost”-questions is the daily life of many of us, especially within projects in the IT industry, and can be a very painful and frustrating experience. This talk is to inspect some of the inherent clashes and some compromises that can be made as well as others that likely should not be pursued. Everyone has at least heard of the typical “Waterfall with stand-ups” scenario or "Water-Scrum-fall". It gets even more desolate when one looks at the tools available. Finding good tools to support Waterfall projects is easy, tools for Agile have become even more plentiful in recent years. But when was the last time you picked up a tool that was made to merge the best of these two worlds? We will also look at suggestions for which tools can help alleviating this conflict. - Gert Stander, Agile Strategist, i4bright
That will also add "cloud" word to the conference that is very popular lately. I want to present how using the cloud will allow every company to scale, why startups should think a lot about cloud from beginning and pricing that includes infrastructure costs, how DevOps teams can benefit from having infrastructure as service and how we can avoid big losses on real examples. My examples are mostly from AWS environment, but it will apply to any cloud solution that is on the market. Also happy to discuss the tools needed for the successful and agile workflow to deploy infrastructure. - Marek Knappe, CTO/System Architect/Devops, Inovato / Perceptyx, Inc
The topic elaborates different types of automation like Robotic Process Automation(RPA), DevOps and Cognitive Automation- which essentially leverages Artificial Intelligence & Machine Learning; and how they can bring agility in an enterprise. It also highlights merits of modern automation and how an organization can include those in it's automation journey. Finally, it concludes with short term and long term impact of Automation on the future of employment. - Utpal Chakraborty, Head of Artificial Intelligence, YES BANK
There is a large difference between doing agile and being agile. Modern change management techniques suggest many ways of implementing a new organisational change such as agility. However, there are times when just doing it and making it the baseline means that you can kick-start the agile journey. This presentation will present some ideas on the things that you can enforce and the things that will take time. - Mike Burns, Agile Coach, WorkingMouse
Design your product war room: Create alignment and openness through a visual product blueprint. Who is this talk aimed to? Product managers, iteration managers, team leaders, developers, engineers, executives, or anyone working with a product development team. What is the problem we are trying to solve? Product companies have trouble keeping track of the current state of where the product’s features are, where it needs to go and whether or not their desired outcomes are being achieved. What is our solution? Combining concepts and frameworks of visual thinking, product management, prioritization, and risk management we will present an approach that will enable anyone working on building products to keep track of what’s being worked on, whether current outcomes are being achieved, how work aligns to strategic goals, and what the next most important outcome is. Listen our story of our challenges, our mistakes, our successes, and hopefully help product teams. What is the main benefit of the solution? We expect that this approach will bring alignment, transparency and openness that is easily accessible across many functions in a product business. - Alan Soto, Product Manager / Lean & Agility Coach, intelliHR - Intelligent People Management - Hans Barroga, Senior UX/UI Designer, intelliHR - Intelligent People Management
Agile Management: Software, Stakeholders and Strategy - Jordan Duffy, Co-founder and Director of innovation and IT Strategy, Buckham and Duffy Consultants
