Knowing Your Software Supply Chain

Every software development organization on the planet has a software supply chain that is consuming a massive volume of open source and third-party components at extremely high velocity.

From Design Thinking to DevOps and Back Again

The era of digital service is shifting customers’ brand expectations from stability to responsiveness. Optimizing delivery speed is only half of this new equation. Companies also need to optimize their ability to listen and to act on what they hear. In order to maximize both velocity and responsiveness, companies need to transform up-front design into a continuous, circular design-operations loop that unifies marketing, design, development, operations, and support.

This talk presents key principles of continuous design that organizations can use to conduct mutually beneficial conversations with their customers. It describes how to create real customer value using Design Thinking together with DevOps. It also explains how to improve service quality by generating meaningful feedback throughout the design-operations lifecycle.
