Improving Business Strategies with Agility and Innovation

Warsaw, February 26, 2019

Overview

The digital economy's requirement to deliver high-quality applications at the speed of the business - or better still, at the speed of the consumer - is the driving force to more rapidly develop, deploy and update apps and services. With the current emphasis on speed to innovation and the delivery of superior customer experiences, Agile and DevOps tools and approaches become the defaults for all enterprises. It's no longer about if organizations should adopt DevOps, it is now about getting DevOps right and scaling it across the enterprise.

This next stage of the journey to enable business agility requires a shift in IT investment strategies. Organizations need to have an infrastructure that can accommodate both current and next-generation workloads to accelerate performance and business agility in a sustainable way. Automation plays a central if not the most central role in allowing organizations to successfully deliver better performance.

In May 2018, IDC and Red Hat conducted a study in Central Europe to assess how enterprise IT management and automation strategies are evolving due to the impact of cloud computing, DevOps, and digital transformation initiatives. It showed that overall, more than 60% of Central European organizations now embrace DevOps, and regardless of maturity we see that DevOps works and delivers results.

 

IDC and Red Hat are delighted to invite you to join us to debate the issues and the challenges that Central European organizations face in improving business agility in a Multicloud and DevOps world.

Improving Business Agility and Innovation in a Multicloud and DevOps World

Jaroslaw Smulski
Senior Program Manager, Systems & Infrastructure Solutions, Poland

CIOs and IT organizations are challenged to support business units with modernization initiatives as they respond to persistent challenges and opportunities in the digital era.

Organizations are confronted with rapidly expanding application estates and traditional application architectures, operations, and pace of development are completely inadequate in this digitized economy.

More than 60% of Central European organizations now embrace DevOps, with business innovation a clear benefit. The ability to accelerate transformation of application delivery will be one of the most critical business objectives for organizations in the next half decade.

This Keynote will discuss:

  • Where Polish organizations are on in terms of application delivery transformation, and how organizations can accelerate performance and business agility.
  • The role of automation and how to prepare an automation strategy.
  • Lessons learnt and expected benefits (technology and business) from infrastructure modernization, management, and automation.
