  • About myself About Valire About the discussion Meaning of opening video Relevant environment in consideration
  • The translation of “storm” into numbers
  • Look at the growth The significant news is the fact they are changing the large enterprise
  • Is Agile and cloud the same thing? No if you are IT person Yes if your business guy Is cloud SaaS is the answer to agility?
  • Describe three levels of agility It is agreed that ultimate goal is the business – the difference is where you assume is your main challenge Agile delivery requires new methods for packaged application DevOps addressed in SAP (if we ignore integrations) Main emphasize should be on Business-IT
  • Enterprise ERP usage time is measured by many years Most of the IT focus is on the implementation. Misalignment usually come later. Misalignment is experienced by: Gaps in existing process Inability to adapt Slow IT response time
  • I like to use this evolution diagram because it provide business perspective on the ERP Three stages IT Infrastructure – Initial project Alignment - “Stabilization” Improvements – note the split/breakdown
  • Taken from SAP Emphasize business involvement in the teams and activity CIO moves gauge agility means to push further left
  • IT management's objections
  • Lean Startup is an example of Business IT alignment method Things to take Looking at interrelations of business agility and IT agility Things to skip Small company → corporate strategy level Key goal is maximize pivot
  • Agile meets Enterprise ERP
