Contracting for Agile: Lessons From the Trenches in Sourcing Agile Development | Webinar

Complimentary 60-minute webinar to be held on Thursday, September 27, 2018 | 9 a.m. CDT, 10 a.m. EDT, 3 p.m. BST, 7:30 p.m. IST

VIEW PRESENTATION

Questions we’ll address:

  • Is broad-based adoption of Agile Development real or hype?
  • How does Agile impact the delivery model for outsourced services?
  • How do pricing models need to evolve to capture value from Agile?
  • How do Terms & Conditions for Agile contracts need to change to minimize risk and maximize value?
  • What are some best practices to consider when negotiating and managing Agile contracts?

As frequent delivery and customer satisfaction become the new currencies for IT organizations, a greater number of enterprises are embracing Agile and DevOps methodologies to rapidly deploy useful software. As traditional, Waterfall-based contracts are unable to manage the ambiguity and complexity related to Agile, the increase in Agile adoption is causing sourcing groups to reassess outsourcing contract templates.

Who should attend, and why?
This webinar will provide Strategic Outsourcing & Vendor Management groups with practical insights for structuring and negotiating Agile contracts.

Digital Transformation: Ready or (Probably) Not? | Webinar

Presentation originally aired on Thursday, July 12, 2018 | 9 a.m. CDT, 10 a.m. EDT, 3 p.m. BST, 7:30 p.m. IST

Download View Presentation Button

Virtually all businesses view digital transformation as a top priority…but how many are actually ready to transform? Very few, as it turns out – Everest Group research indicates that only about 10% of enterprise IT organizations are ready to reinvent their enterprise through digital technology.

Why does that matter? We believe that readiness for digital transformation is the key predictor of digital transformation success because readiness depends on a full complement of a variety of prerequisite investments and conditions.

Through our Pinnacle Model™ research and consultative engagements with CIOs who are successfully making their companies’ digital transformation a competitive advantage, we have identified the prerequisites for creating those conditions, which we will share in this webinar. The session will address:

  • What it means for an IT organization to be ready for digital transformation
  • How leading enterprises are preparing differently from the rest of the market
  • The most impactful actions an IT organization can take to ready itself to drive value from a digital transformation

Who should attend?
Enterprise senior IT professionals, across all industries

The RPA market and technology landscape is rapidly evolving. Here at Everest group we have been following the trends closely, collecting unique datasets on the market, and assessing and comparing leading technologies side by side as part of the research. Our latest RPA technology assessment, Robotic Process Automation (RPA) – Technology Vendor Landscape with Products PEAK Matrix™ Assessment 2018, represents the third consecutive year we’ve offered unique buyer insights to our enterprise clients.
