19:00 - Main presentation
20:00 - Close
This session is going to be about how to compete in the age of software - an interconnected, real-time world in which every industry is dependent on technology and every organisation (at least in part) is a software company. To remain competitive, enterprises need to digitally transform their operations, business solutions, and customer experience. The larger challenge in many enterprises is that their current business models, organisational hierarchy, and technology infrastructure can’t keep pace with the rapid change required.
SAFe provides a proven set of integrated patterns that allow the whole company to change and adapt. We will review at a high level what SAFe is and what problems it is trying to solve. We will also look at how Vodafone has implemented it to transform the way it provides Customer Services, and winning the coveted IDC’s Digital Transformer of the year 2017 award.
