Add to calendar

Are you ready for business agile? Machine learning? Chatbots and intelligent decision support? What about hiring new people and delivering high-quality projects on time and on budget in this new paradigm? Emerging technology and embedded IT teams are entering into a symbiotic relationship, where DevOps is inefficient without AI and business leaders are involved in the everyday of the tech team. In this session, Rachel Burger will discuss how IT leaders can determine which DevOps technologies are hype and which are real. You'll learn how to best leverage new technology to empower your teams while mitigating any new risks. Gain an understanding of what new technologies Rachel believes will be standard practices by 2021 and introduce a business agile paradigm shift that is already happening. You will leave this presentation with recommended AI-based tools and techniques to improve your software delivery process, as well as ideas for how to immediately investigate and deploy these tools. Let's look toward the future of software development.
