3/4/13 #ProdMgmtTalk w/ Alex Cowan, CTO, Leonid Systems And Author

  1. 1. PR Log - Global Press Release Distribution Global Product Management Talk On Disrupting Enterprise Software And Corporate IT Source: Global Product Management Talk Dated: Feb. 27, 2013 Alex Cowan, CTO, Leonid Systems And Author, Starting a Tech Business Discusses How To Disrupt Enterprise Software And Corporate IT In Six Steps San Francisco, CA - While 17-year-olds were creating hit mobile apps and Facebook was inventing the great new American pastime, corporate IT and enterprise software remained relatively incremental, plodding through release cycles in roughly the same fashion as they had decades prior. No more. The same trends and tools that have dramatically raised the quality bar in consumer applications are doing the same thing to corporate IT and enterprise software. If you havent heard about design thinking or Lean Startup you probably will soon. The big paradox about these two incredibly powerful ideas is that theyre almost universally liked, yet rarely practiced in full. The hardest part is getting started- the rest is easy. Alex Cowan, CTO of Leonid Systems and author of Starting a Tech Business will talk with host, Cindy F. Solomon, about essentials of how to build an effective foundation for regular application of these ideas within enterprise software and corporate IT environments on Monday, March 4, 2013 at the simultaneous times of 10:00 AM Pacific Time, 11:00 AM MST Denver, 12 Noon CST Chicago, and 1:00 PM EST Boston.
