Free Webinar: Join OFS’ Rich Napoli and guest speaker, Forrester Research Inc’s Michael Facemire on this informative webinar on 9th May 2013
Life used to be much simpler for IT folks when there were two distinct types of software—custom software you wrote for your own corporation’s use and product software that you bought from a software vendor. The custom software you wrote for your own firm had only to meet your company’s unique requirements. That is no longer so.
Large IT customers are facing new challenges today:
- Building a product road map
- Planning a release
- Software build management
- Regression testing
Historically, companies found and maintained success by excelling in the core skills of their industry. This trend is dramatically changing. The best companies in every industry now find a common thread in excellence - software.
Software has always been changing how organizations do business internally, but the game-changing phenomenon that is now taking place is that these same organizations now interact with suppliers, partners, and most importantly, their customers, using software - not just packaged software but their own, proprietary software as well..
Join OFS’ Rich Napoli and guest speaker, Forrester Research Inc’s Michael Facemire on a informative free webinar on 9th May 2013 as they present their research and experience working with decision makers from multiple industries to help them to build their software to meet today's global needs.
Because of many of the challenges as mentioned above, even if you are not a software company, you may find that you need to think like one! Your internal IT applications need to be designed using many of the same engineering concepts as those used to build software products:
- Creating a scalable architecture and a long-term product roadmap
- Doing careful release planning
- Leveraging agile development methodologies and
- Using the latest build and testing tools to shorten the total delivery cycle.
