          DevOps and the Enterprise: Perfect Partners
          DevOps Summit Feb. 21, 2013, Amsterdam, NL

           DevOps can and should drive competitive advantage in the enterprise. All too often it is
           seen as "just the latest fad," or not able to deal with enterprise-class problems. In this
           session, Heinold will outline a framework to help drive the DevOps conversation in the IT
           organization. At its core, DevOps is an Agile methodology that stresses collaboration
           between those building software (traditionally Dev), those deploying software
           (traditionally Ops), and those using the software. He will discuss how to build a
           continuous delivery pipeline which supports the needs of all these stake holders without
           giving up on traceability, compliance or governance.

          Case Study: Business Agility through DevOps
          ALM Summit Feb. 28, 2013, Kensington, UK

           For the world's leading mail and logistics services group, rapid growth paired with a strong
           push into online services accelerated the business demand for new applications. In one
           division, there are more than 300 active, concurrent software projects, and most of the
           apps are critical to the core business.  Using a single platform to standardize all vital
           processes (for development, maintenance and operations) has enabled collaboration, created
           efficiencies and reduced cost. Heinold will discuss how applications can be managed and
           deployed at the pace demanded by the business without jeopardizing governance, visibility
           and oversight. Overall business agility improved as applications are delivered closely
           aligned and timed with the business needs.

          Case study: What does an ALM service have to provide?
          ALM Summit Feb. 28, 2013, Kensington, UK

           Cloud computing, Agile methodologies and DevOps have changed the requirements of a
           development infrastructure. Whether developing in the cloud or for the cloud - traditional
           ALM solutions run short without modernization and extension. This presentation provides
           thoughts and ideas on what a modern platform should provide as a service to developers,
           takes a look into the specialties of system engineering, embedded software and the co-
           existence with PLM.  Finally, it provides a framework and guidelines to help decide where
           infrastructure status is today and what the next steps should look like to upgrade it into
           a cloud-ready state.
