“The CIOs I talk with describe the avalanche of projects they face. Almost three quarters of the CIOs say they are investing in mobile deployments this year, of which one-third of those will be deployed in a cloud. However, 70 percent of their budgets, on average, are still spent on maintenance and 34 percent of their projects are late. It's a vicious cycle.”
Jamie Thomas, VP of Strategy & Development, IBM Tivoli will join Marie later this month at IBM Impact to help address how businesses can navigate through the “avalanche of projects” by turning these barriers to innovation into capabilities:
- Delayed delivery of new applications and services
- Inflexible development & delivery lifecycle
- Marginal quality of applications and services
- Discontinuous feedback preventing solution iterations
- Inconspicuousness of impending problems
How do you turn barriers into capabilities to accelerate applications to market? That’s the magical part. Achieving agile service delivery requires improved visibility, control and automation. Development and operations teams must respond to market changes faster with unparalleled, fully automated tooling and infrastructure.
But Jamie won’t be waving any wands. You don’t need to when you lead an organization rich in deep expertise, client experience, standards based platforms, and end-to-end capabilities.
Responsible for driving collaboration across an organization committed to developing innovative tools and technologies, there’s no one who knows more about the IBM capability of quickly developing, testing, deploying, and monitoring applications. Tweeter @boosc, who saw her present at Pulse, agrees:
Join Jamie Thomas at IBM Impact, April 30 at 10:45 am for session #2121 Optimizing the World's Infrastructure in the Marcello room - 4501B at the Venetian Hotel. Add session #2121 to your agenda with the IBM Impact Smartsite agenda builder.
But if you can’t wait that long for an update on what happened to the Maximo cows, have a look into the crystal ball this interview from Pulse with Jamie.
