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 statementshave 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 Brussels on May 23, 2018 will feature speaker presentations and discussion sessions covering Agile and DevOps via experience sharing and real life scenarios.


The conference seeks to feature presentation and discussion sessions by recognized thought-leaders addressing the actual developments and trends in Agile & DevOps, and 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.

“Agile is not for IT!” Agile can be applied beyond IT teams and projects! Let us revisit the sources, the values, principles and practices and see why Agile can go beyond IT; and why this is a key factor in overcoming the challenges of large transformations. - Pierre Hervouet, Managing Partner, EDIDIA
In their first days, companies exploring Agile use to simply apply the rules and process such as described in the frameworks they decided to adopt. Those organisations are for the time being, doing Agile but they are not Agile. By the time they get used with the process and if they continuously stick to the "Agile values & principles" they begin to think Agile. And there starts the Maturity process. How can we assess that an organisation is actually Mature enough to be considered as Agile ? Most of time, that requires that all of its aspects need to be considered, from the decision process to the infrastructure architecture, in order to fully comply with Agile concepts. In this talk we will explore the different aspects of an organisation that must be assessed in order to define a certain level of Agile Maturity. - Ilyasse Setti, Project Manager, EC( European Commission)
More and more Agile is used outside of the software sector. Trough a real case, we will go trough all the elements to take into consideration to make such transformation effective. - Said Mellouli, Agile Coach, Trainer, AUDACITY

In this presentation he will talk about how “Spotify” seems to become the new “Xerox” as a genericized trademark/proprietary eponym: where “to Xerox” was a common term to make copies, “the Spotify model” has become the term to evolve to an agile/DevOps organization, with small autonomous teams. Koen Vastmans will talk about the why and why not of this so-called approach, what to “Xerox” and what not. - Koen Vastmans, Agile & DevOps Coach, KBC
Even with an agile DNA, we sometimes find it challenging to work according to the agile values and principles we are so fond of. Mostly because it’s more challenging to implement Agile in a company which is not a software house. We asked ourselves: what does Agile mean for us on the inside? And in general, what does working in the agile way mean for a consulting company? That’s when some members of our team gathered around this subject and started working on it. In short sprints, with daily synchros, retrospectives, more face-to-face, transparency, collaboration and commitment. Many impediments, iterations and attempts later, we’ve reinvented all of our processes, implemented new tools and adopted new practices, keeping in mind our colleagues in France, Netherlands and Switzerland Through this session, I want to share with you this 3 years journey with all its failures & successes, the benefits and the challenges still lying ahead of us. - Artur Margonari, Agile Coach, Trainer and Facilitator, Wemanity Belgium
Cost of Transformation - Juan Florez, CTO, Development Manager, Coach, Banking Industry
