Dinner for San Jose IT Leaders

From DevOps to Value Stream Management: What, How, and Why Now?


Tue, May 16, 2023


5:00 PM - 9:00 PM PST

As IT budgets come under increased pressure, the need to innovate faster with fewer resources increases. DevOps transformations automate and accelerate many aspects of application delivery, but organizations now question the business benefit of simply delivering ‘features’ faster. High performing organizations are implementing Value Stream Management (VSM) practices, to help IT organizations identify and prioritize their highest value business changes, remove operational flow constraints, and increase change delivery speed from idea to commercialization.

Join OpenText and Deloitte for dinner and an engaging discussion on Value Stream Management, why it’s becoming a critical component of product-centric thinking at high performing organizations and how to get started. We will share best practices, a case study on utilizing Value Stream Management to achieve superior business outcomes and customer results to date.
