The Future Ready Imperative: A Mainstreamed Mainframe


Keynote

By design, the post-modern mainframe is the most future ready platform in the world: the most reliable, securable, scalable, and cost efficient. Unsurprisingly, the mainframe remains the dominant, growing and vital back-bone for the worldwide economy. However, outdated processes and tools ensnared in an apathetic culture doggedly resistant to change, prevent far too many enterprises from unleashing its unique technical virtues and business value.

In this session, Chris O’Malley will share his insights for helping enterprise IT change from a structured organization designed to serve the business to an agile organization designed to serve their customers. This future ready foundation is built on a mainstreamed mainframe that thrives in a culture driven by continuous improvement, Agile methods and a preferred DevOps toolchain. In addition, Chris will share the good, the bad and the ugly surrounding Compuware’s own transformation from a declining business oppressed in annual waterfall release cycles to an energized software company 100% committed to Agile and DevOps.
