Topic: DevOps / Agile

Presented by: Jeff Stott, Extra space Storage

Software Delivery Performance
Software delivery is a key value driver and differentiator unlocking advantages for organizations such as increased profitability, productivity, market share, and customer satisfaction.  IT organizations often struggle with the perception that speed and stability are at odds and a competing interest.  What if you could improve both simultaneously?  This discussion will focus on how to measure your software delivery performance and understand the research behind the team practices that improve performance. 

You will learn:

  • How improving your software delivery capabilities have impact on organization performance
  • The metrics that matter most according to the research
  • The culture and practices that differentiate elite vs. low performers
  • Not a tech company? Why industry doesn’t matter when it comes to software delivery maturity

“CIO-Only” Roundtable Luncheons are held every 6 to 8 weeks. These invitation-only events are reserved for the top IT position in our member companies.  (Participating companies need to have an IT staff of 6 or more). This is a great opportunity to network with peers and find out how they are addressing technical and leadership issues that may be similar to yours! The luncheons are vendor-free and we average ~35 attendees.
