Software delivered in time = when really needed. Closing the execution gap with the right cloud implementation.

Adopting and deploying cloud in your organization doesn’t solve on its own the continuous and timely software delivery issue.Taking the full advantage of the on demand model, you need constantly new software capabilities. In a recent IBM Institute for Business Value study, the majority of business leaders indicated that software development and delivery capability is critical to being able to exploit cloud for competitive advantage. Remarkably, three quarters felt that their teams did not leverage it effectively today. This “execution gap” — the difference between the need to deliver software effectively and the ability to do so — is causing missed business opportunities for the vast majority of companies surveyed.

In his talk, Cor will address the execution gap with three main practices that stand out for cloud software capability and how to introduce them in parallel with cloud adoption. He will focus on DevOps enabling organizations to achieve faster time to market and/or time to value. The session will explore real use cases to determine how to best keep up with cloud.

This session is sponsored by SoftLayer, an IBM Company
