X Topic Abstract

The 4.0 era is host to systemic and structural disruptions. To manage is not enough; one must lead. In leading self and others are we embracing the full optimum of both our convergent capacities to manage and our divergent abilities to lead? Indera will be using tools and activities from The Organizational Zoo (OZAN), a proprietary leadership and organizational development (O.D) tool developed by Dr. Arthur Shelley and used in over 20 countries in diverse sectors and organizations such as NASA, World Bank, Cirque du Soleil & The Singapore Pioneer Generation. The session aims to awaken new leadership dimensions. Create high performance workplace culture through embracing both convergent and divergent capabilities in individuals, teams and leaders.

X Topic Abstract

Robotic process automation (RPA) has been found to be useful for tasks that involve structured digital data, follow pre-defined rules and need minimal decision making. But in a not-so-perfect world, some data may be unstructured. Some scenarios are so diverse that there are hundreds or thousands of combinations and decision points. Rules may be difficult to define at times. Will your RPA project then be doomed for failure? Bring in A.I. (artificial intelligence) to complement the conventional RPA features, so that you can handle more than just simple structured data and simple decision making. This talk will shed light on how you can harness the prowess of A.I. to make RPA projects cover greater scope to bring more impact and success.

X Topic Abstract

"Any fool can write code that a computer can understand. Good programmers write code that humans can understand" - Martin Fowler

In times of product development at scale, with multiple distributed teams, and varied styles of coding and testing, readability and maintainability of code are prime casualties. Moreover how does one measure the value quotient of the product? Behaviour driven development (BDD) is a practice that bridges the gap between business needs and technical implementation by enabling the business users and developers to collaborate in ubiquitous language, with focus on value delivery.

The focus areas of this proposed session are enriching collaboration, transparency, code quality and ways to develop products that deliver value.

X Topic Abstract

Often people are not clear on how Agile and DevOps fit together and the culture change for developers. They are very complementary, and often adopting Agile is the driver for the introduction of DevOps in an organization. In this talk I will share from my experience as an enterprise Agile & DevOps coach (working in the Singapore financial services sector), DevOps enthusiast, and blogger (Auspicious Agile) how Agile and DevOps are completely complementary, and the culture change that takes place in organizations and development teams.

I think that many practitioners of DevOps wish to better understand how Agile fits into the picture and vice versa (Agile practitioners want to better understand DevOps). Some attendees may not have considered previously how Agile and DevOps work in a complementary way, and this talk may open up new "food for thought". DevOps culture change and principles like Gene Kim’s “Three Ways” - Flow, Feedback, and Continuous Learning, are key to successful use of DevOps. I think the talk will be valuable to a great number of attendees.

X Topic Abstract

Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) foster collaboration between internal development teams and external partners by separating a service’s interface from its execution. But the gains from abstraction are lost unless changes to the API can be tested and deployed rapidly. This session will explain how to build a CI/CD pipeline to deploy an API to an API Management Platform which connects to a given back end URL. It will show how changes to an API definition in a source code repository can be automatically detected, initiating build and test, followed by deployment to a staging environment.
