List of Talks

TALK 1: How to make Multi-Speed IT Happen: adding new gears to existing IT
Lecturer: Alfonso Tamés Llana
Affiliation: Accenture Managing Director – Advanced Technologies & Architectures Ecosystem Lead
Abstract: Business today consume IT at several speeds all at once. Innovation and digital disruption require quick response, legacy systems call for deliberate care and shifting operating models need a pace of change somewhere in between. Two speeds are no longer enough for the modern IT organization. Unless organizations can master the art of delivering change at the pace demanded by each area of the business, they risk being relegated to tending legacy systems. Multi-speed IT is what the organizations should achieve to face those challenges, by bringing, together, traditional and new delivery methodologies and tools, network of skills and operating models.
