· Chris Taylor - Business Strategy Focus
Incorporating Digitisation and DevOps into the aviation sector. How to bring "agility with stability" to a conservative sector which demands rock solid reliability.
Like many industries, aviation needs to facilitate technological change to embrace passenger expectations. Much of aviation has been built on "locked in" monoliths, provided by large vendors with even larger change cycle's. How do you unlock the value of data in these core systems and build a strategy to benefit the business?
The talk will be based on some real examples and hopefully offer some guidelines on how to get stakeholders to think differently to deliver a more connected platform for growth.
· Panel - A DevOps panel discussion with representatives from Autotrader, Booking, AO, Azinq, BBC and DevOpsGroup.
