Baltimore, MD (PRWEB) March 31, 2014
Catalyst IT Services CEO Michael Rosenbaum will discuss the impact of onshore agile development as a productivity and innovation driver and the need for agile business intelligence at upcoming industry events. The founder and pioneer of Catalyst’s unique Moneyball-based approach for talent selection and team assembly, Rosenbaum will present at the ALM (application lifecycle management) Forum in Seattle and will be on hand at the Gartner Business Intelligence & Analytics Summit as part of Catalyst IT Services’ participation in the event.
The Business of Software Delivery
It is rare to see extensive data at scale that compares onshore agile teams to geographically dispersed teams less comfortable with agile. The surprising differences revealed in that data is the core of Rosenbaum’s presentation at the ALM Forum’s Business of Software Delivery track. The session, “Empirical Evidence for Productivity Improvements from Co-located, Onshore Agile Teams: A Case Study from a Fortune 500 Sports Apparel Company” will be held on Apr. 3 at 3:15 pm PDT.
Catalyst client King County Library System is also presenting at the ALM Forum. Director of IT Services Jed Moffitt will share the story of agile transformation at KCLS, one of the largest circulating libraries in the United States. Moffitt will share tips on how to drive adoption in slow-to-adopt environments, discussing how his library moved from application development timeframes of six months or longer to releasing improvements every two weeks so that it could better compete in a world now dominated by online book sites and volumes of free content.
The Need for Agile Business Intelligence
Catalyst IT Services will also participate in the Gartner Business Intelligence & Analytics Summit in Orlando, Florida from 31 March - 2 April 2014. With data now referred to as the new oil, well-designed Business Intelligence (BI) systems play an important role in facilitating the availability and reliability of business-critical information and ensuring that data and business context are available to the people who need it, when they need it. Rosenbaum will be on hand with other Catalyst executives to discuss the need for agile business intelligence and the company’s deep expertise in developing predictive analytics, customer and business metric reporting, labor and employee management systems and supply chain management systems. Catalyst IT Services can be found at Booth 112 at the BI Summit.
