    Spotlight Track

    Infrastructure Agility

    What does agile even mean? Agile is a state of mind, a perspective, an organization pursues agile, they don’t do agile. Agile I&O does not mean a cloning of agile development, instead I&O must seek to embrace agile concepts that can be applied to I&O, as it strives to meet increasingly demanding business needs to deliver infrastructure platforms and services

    Spotlight Track

    Spotlight Track
