Asia/Pacific Digital Innovation and DevOps Strategies

The Asia/Pacific Digital Innovation and DevOps Strategies program provides insights and guidance to C-suite executives at IT buyer organizations and to technology suppliers on digitally innovative products and services. The program is focused on advising IT buyers on how to execute on digital innovation — including software development that creates value-add and differentiation in their products and corporate systems and understanding what their competitors and peers are doing, along with the benefits and potential returns from embracing innovation. The focus for technology suppliers is on how to embrace and support/encourage digital innovation by their clients by bringing enabling technologies to them with software solutions, development tools and DevOps tooling, and SaaS and PaaS platforms as well as ways to leverage other apps, development practices, and sourcing and distribution opportunities.

This program explores digitally innovative software applications, development platforms, and architectures. It looks at software development and deployment trends, practices, challenges, and buying behaviors, ranging from DevOps and DevSecOps to open source software, data operations, and API ecosystems. It provides insights into developer attitudes and preferences for software development tools, languages, and programming models, with a focus on products and technologies that enable digital transformation and revenue growth and capture new customers and users.
