Why Executives & Developers Speak Different Languages
+ How to Bridge the Gap

“Executives don’t understand what we do!” exclaims the developer. “Developers don’t understand how much this is costing us!” the executive responds.

Across our industry, executives are frustrated that they can’t get straight answers to simple questions like “When will it be finished?” And developers are frustrated that executives are always changing their minds, asking for ambiguous things, and then wanting concrete deadlines.

In this webinar, we are going to explore the reasons for the communication mismatch. We’ll share what executives should be asking to get the answers they need. Discover what developers need to hear from their executives and how developers may translate an executive’s “asks” into the work they are doing.

The webinar host, Jeffrey Palermo, has been a programmer since 1997 and a software executive since 2006. He has bridged both worlds, loves helping software teams succeed, and enjoys helping executives oversee their software teams better.

So, You Think You're Agile

In today’s rapidly evolving tech landscape, agility and efficiency in software engineering are more crucial than ever. However, the 2023 State of Database Landscape survey highlights significant barriers to effective DevOps implementation. This survey reveals a substantial number of professionals struggle with understanding DevOps concepts, lack the skills within their teams, and fear disruptions to existing workflows.

This eye-opening webinar tackles these challenges head-on. We’ll start by posing a series of probing questions about your current software engineering processes. If you find yourself answering ‘no’ to any of the questions presented, it’s a clear indicator that your process might not be as agile as you think.

But there’s hope! We’ll dive into how Redgate’s innovative solutions, coupled with Clear Measure’s effective implementation strategies, can revolutionize your approach to DevOps. These tools are not just about adopting new technologies; they’re about transforming your organizational mindset to embrace agility and efficiency.

Key areas of focus will include:

  • Data Generation for Test Environments: Learn how to create realistic, scalable testing environments that accelerate development without compromising quality.
  • Cloning Back in Test Production While Masking Data: Discover strategies for replicating production environments in testing while ensuring data privacy and compliance.

By the end of this webinar, you’ll understand what it truly means to be agile in the realm of software engineering and how to overcome the common hurdles in DevOps implementation. Join us to embark on a journey towards seamless, efficient operability in your organization’s DevOps workflow.

State of Software Deployments with Octopus Deploy

Description

Once a software project or new application gets going, the focus tends to be on features. The code has been written but not deployed frequently, so the team starts to slow down right from the get-go.

It might be tempting to think you don’t need DevOps automation just yet. But choosing not to put in a particular process is implicitly deciding to put in a manual process.

In this webinar, Clear Measure & Octopus Deploy architects show you how simple and clear automated DevOps can be.

Learn how straightforward it is to put it in at the beginning. You will never have a point where you must “stop the bus” and “stop delivering features” to catch up with technical infrastructure that would have been so much easier at the beginning.

The topic will cover the architecture and design thinking of automated DevOps, including deployments using best-of-breed tools, Octopus Deploy, Azure, and Azure Pipelines.

Description

Many businesses have decided to have internal software development teams; even tech companies. Over the last 25 years, many non-technical companies have outsourced the creation of software. They lost a lot of money, didn’t get what they thought they would get, and shifted to operating software engineering teams in-house.

They still consider custom software to be the best strategy, but they want more control by hiring their own employees. As a result, these companies become frustrated, feeling like they’ve lost control. They are frustrated that having the in-house team doesn’t actually increase the pace of delivery or solve every problem.

This webinar aims to go over the common categories that consume the time and capacity of software teams everywhere. I hope that once you understand where your team’s time is going, you can make decisions to change and redirect the effort to obtain the desired progress.
