Agile Engineering Governance
Caleb Brown, Sr. Agile Engineer, CollabNet

Many people who explain agile software development often discuss project and planning practices, but hardly mention the development phase—as if actual development were an afterthought. In this insightful session, Caleb Brown drills into the real details of agile engineering challenges from an often ignored perspective.

9:30 am - 10:30 am

Enterprise DevOps at Scale
Karen Kwentus, Solution Architect for Application Release Automation, Automic Software, Inc.

Building a high performing DevOps organization requires change. Leading this transformation will require both a change in mind-set and the tools required to help you control your deployment operation’s environment and processes. Understanding the DevOps technology stack is essential. Automation is the key requirement for continuous integration servers, environment provisioning and configurations, all the way up the stack to your application layers.

10:30 am - 11:00 am

Securing the Software Development Lifecycle
Kelly R. Parker, President/CEO/Technologist at Noetic Strategies, Inc.

Noetic will focus on the intersection of cyber and software engineering. Security must be inherent in the requirements, design and process of software. There will be an outline on how an intelligent strategy based on expertise, methodology and unique products insures a secure software foundation. Realizing the benefits of building software security in at all phases instead of as an afterthought when there is a problem. A clear demonstration on how software like TeamForge is vital to business operations as a standard platform for application development, and how an application software framework can be customized, configured & secured to meet niche requirements beyond agile software lifecycle management. Software is no longer a component – it is the infrastructure that is required in order to operate on a day-to-day basis.
