How to Successfully Move to Software-defined Platform Operations

View the event on LinkedIn, which was delivered live on Thursday, December 1, 2022.

Software-defined platform operations is a rising trend unlocking immense potential in businesses. It allows businesses to think holistically about how they create value and how that value is measured. The model also accelerates innovation by productizing the dynamics between operations and technology.

This shift to a product and platform-based mindset can produce greater organizational agility and customer focus and achieve goals and value faster. But success requires new recruiting and retention strategies, organization designs, strategic supplier relationships, and ongoing change management.

Join moderator Michael Voellinger, Managing Director at Yates Ltd., with Peter Bendor-Samuel, Founder and CEO at Everest Group, Charlotte Yates, Founder and CEO at Yates Ltd., and Stuart McGuigan, Former Chief Information Officer at Johnson & Johnson, as they explore the path to software-defined operating platforms and the ways in which organizations must learn, adapt, and make new investments.

Our speakers will explore:

✅ How companies can embrace and drive change through a platform mindset
✅ How to implement a new governance structure to support software-defined operating platforms
✅ How to adapt to a different trajectory of investments
