Continuous Business Planning
Market volatility, increasing competition and decreasing product life cycles are forcing organizations to move to a much more rapid, continuous planning cycle. To meet this challenge, speed of software delivery needs to be complemented and governed through informed decisions based on business needs and right planning cycles, which are further integrated with downstream development for operational excellence. Join us to exchange best practices and knowledge with peers of Portfolio, Product, Demand & Delivery Management solutions, along with Multi-sourcing governance solutions, helping organizations of all sizes and across all industries.

NATO Program Management for Large International Projects
The NATO CI Agency is responsible for delivering C2 (Command and Control) capabilities to NATO. Being a public-sector enterprise NATO has strict procurement rules, long project cycles and a more “traditional” project approach. However the world is changing rapidly and its users, being used to state-of-the art Apple-like apps in their daily life, are expecting the same state-of-the art tools to support them in their military job. This session will address how NATO is managing this challenge to become more agile, shorten the project cycles and ensure that the programme is more than the sum of its projects. It did this by setting-up a Programme Management Office, using the Rational Toolset, to manage the integration and overall benefits.

Opening Key Note: DevOps delivers @ speed.
You've heard that DevOps can cut software delivery cycles from months to days or even hours. Well, how about minutes? Join us as we show you how with a day-in-the-life experience to help ignite your imagination. We design, build, test and deploy a fully functional "internet of things" application. Then, we integrate it with back-end services by using IBM BlueMix cloud services, all with quality and confidence and all in minutes. You see close-up views of the most exciting new innovations in agile development, internet of things, release and deployment, monitoring, DevOps-as-a-platform service and more.

The IBM Rational Point of View: The Future Outlook for Systems Engineering
We live in an era where major developments are rapidly shaping the evolution of complex systems and smart devices. Such technologies as networking, cloud, and progression in information management, analytics and open standards accelerate both the innovation and complexity of systems, but also systems engineering tools and practices. This session features a discussion about the IBM Rational Point of View on how the systems engineering practice is going to evolve towards the Internet of Things in the years to come.

Increasing productivity through requirements reuse and variant management with Rational DOORS Next Generation.
Requirements management is a pivotal activity in engineering processes, especially in the presence of supply chains, customer contracts and complex system development in general. Managing and reusing requirements for a set of product variants has been one of the key challenges with requirement management tools. Rational DOORS Next Generation's new configuration management capabilities greatly simplify these tasks. In this presentation we will show how these capabilities may be applied in variant management scenarios. The scenarios are informed by our interactions with clients in various industries including Requirements management is a pivotal activity in engineering processes, especially in the presence of supply chains, customer contracts and complex system development in general. Managing and reusing requirements for a set of product variants has been one of the key challenges with requirement management tools. Rational DOORS Next Generation's new configuration management capabilities greatly simplify these tasks. In this presentation we will show how these capabilities may be applied in variant management scenarios. The scenarios are informed by our interactions with clients in various industries including aerospace and defense, automotive and electronics.

Processes and Practices for Cross Discipline Agile Development
The presentation provides direction for cross discipline agile development at an organizational scale. A special focus is on embedded software in complex, safety critical systems. We will discuss deployment patterns, best practices and tools to transform organizations from classic development silos into process-driven, low-overhead, and agile work entities, while still maintaining the compliance to required standards and regulations.

CRYSTAL: Defining a Tool Platform for Safety Critical Systems Engineering

The processes of developing, deploying, governing, operating and maintaining modern safety-critical embedded systems is highly complex and requires specialized tools supporting different activities throughout the entire product life cycle. Today, OEMs and suppliers are typically operating a large set of tools from different vendors often complemented by custom in-house solutions. The overall process can be effective and efficient only, if it supports collaboration among all stakeholders and consequently interoperability between the tools they are using. Considering the ongoing outsourcing and globalization activities, interoperability and openness is getting even more crucial. In addition, the demand for supporting a large number of product variants further increases the complexity to be handled.

The ARTEMIS Joint Undertaking project CRYSTAL (CRitical sYSTem engineering AcceLeration) has identified this need and takes up the challenge to establish and push forward an Interoperability Specification (IOS) and a Reference Technology Platform (RTP) as an open European standard for safety-critical systems. This standard will allow loosely coupled tools to share and interlink their data based on standardized and open Web technologies that enable common interoperability among various life cycle domains. This reduces the complexity of the entire integration process significantly.

The CRYSTAL project focuses on four different domains, i.e. Aerospace, Rail, Automotive and Healthcare. In this presentation we will discuss the work we are doing together with our Healthcare partners (Philips and Barco) showing demonstrators that have been build so far and outlining the work still to come.

Automated Reporting: Best Practices & Success Stories for Regulated Industries
Demonstrating compliance and assurance continues to be one of the toughest challenges faced by organisations in regulated industries today. Companies operating in the defence, healthcare and automotive sectors -to name just a few- are charged with delivering increasingly complex systems within fiscal constraints that are tighter than ever. Key to overcoming this complexity-cost paradox are well integrated tools, robust processes and elimination of error-prone manual effort through automation. This presentation showcases the best-practice reporting techniques used by the smartest organizations to generate comprehensive trace reporting on lifecycle information such as requirements, design and test, and across multiple disciplines and domains including safety, quality, change and configuration management.

A DevOps Strategy to Help You Win Business
DevOps has rapidly gained recognition as a successful approach to transform organizations for achieving delivery of software. The question is not why, but rather how does one get started to deliver software faster and more frequently, with high quality with improved client experience. In this session, we will share the results of a survey of clients in different industries in North American and Europe, to understand where they are in the DevOps continuum compared to other organizations with similar characteristics. This session will provide client and industry analyst perspectives on the practices that organizations need to follow to be successful with DevOps adoption.

PointZERO
Higher quality with shorter lead times and lower cost are business requisites. For decennia, huge effort has been put in quality assurance and structured testing, but that did not bring the envisioned result so far. PointZERO® focuses on first time right, increasing quality of delivery to the max and reducing test and rework cost to a minimum. Overall it leads to happier business management. Your return on investment is huge and can be constantly and easily monitored. Wim van Uden is senior management consultant and trusted advisor of C-level management in a lot of organizations. He presents his best practices in applying PointZERO®.

Automated Provisioning in the Cloud, or which style of patterns to choose
Both Urbancode Deploy and Urbancode Deploy with Patterns provide mechanisms for automated provisioning of a topology in the cloud. One is based on IBM's Virtual System Patterns, the other is based on OpenStack Heat Orchestration Templates. In this session, we will cover what those styles of patterns are, how they are used from within UrbanCode deploy and help you choose the style suitable for your specific situation.

Making RTC Pop: Planning in Five Easy Pieces
RTC planning is so robust that we are overwhelmed with possibilities. Working with RTC without planning is like being dropped in the ocean and trying to swim home. Plans are based on team areas associated with categories and timeline iterations. We only need to know five easy pieces to make RTC planning work: 1. Each user fills in their profile->work allocation and scheduled absences 2. Each user updates estimated and remaining hours in their tasks 3. Project manager creates a plan (configure three fields) 4. Project manager creates and selects views (configure options, columns and filters) 5. Drag and drop ranking and resource leveling across owner and iteration

DevOps Best Practices from Real Life Customer Experiences
IBM has a team of specialists that assist European customers with their implementation of DevOps. One of the members of this team will share with you his experience on having implemented automated deployment at numerous customers by showing you what went well and which things are better to be avoided. Specific examples will be shown regarding Urbancode Deploy and Release, both from a tools perspective and from a roll-out perspective.

The new Developer Experience: Rapid Solution Delivery with IBM Bluemix Services.
In this day and age, it is more important than ever to take a business idea and quickly develop and deliver a solution so that customers can seize market opportunities. Traditional IT processes and tools only stand in the way. What is needed are simpler cloud platform services coupled with a simple and easily accessible development and delivery experience. Would you like to be able to form a dynamic team that can implement, test, and deliver high quality solutions within days or weeks versus months? We will show how we are developing platform services based on Cloud Foundry with a simplified, hosted development experience using IBM DevOps Services. Come see how the new developer experience could transform and accelerate the way.

Pitfalls of Mobile Testing and how you can Avoid Them with Rational Test Workbench?
The rapid growth of mobile applications on the market dramatically complicates the job of testers. In addition to the usual difficulties that accompany modern application testing, mobile testers encounter new pitfalls due to the nature of mobile applications and devices: the fragmentation of OS platforms (such as Android and iOS) and technologies (native, hybrid and others), the need to take into account new capabilities unique to mobility (GPS) and the wide variety of devices to cover (e.g., form factors, versions), all of which contribute to significantly increase the duration of test phases. The objective of this session is to present how the mobile testing solution in IBM Rational Test Workbench solves these problems for mobile testers.

Continuous Testing: Removing the Bottlenecks
Testing is challenging and it just keeps getting harder. End user demands for higher quality software delivered faster is forcing testers to look at ways to test continuously. However, the highly integrated nature of today?s applications combined with the increased dependencies on services and systems ? which may not be available when teams need them - is introducing new testing delays. Join Dennis as he shares what teams need in order to be successful in testing continuously. Solve the test environment dilemma and test in production-like test environments earlier. Use service virtualization to make unavailable services and systems available for testing. Automate delivery of software across your test environments to release software sooner.

We discuss real adoption patterns, how to handle history, incremental adoption, utility programs, best practices and also provide hints, tips and gotchas we have learned along the way. We also share examples of client success stories and benefits they realized from adopting cutting edge source code management systems.

Get an A+ on testing your enterprise applications with Rational Development and Test Environment for system Z.
Today's exam: what's the difference between continuous testing of distributed apps and enterprise apps? If you?re on the distributed side, you typically maintain suites of self-checking unit tests. Successful execution of these test suites gives you confidence in your code as you make fixes and deliver enhancements. If you're on the enterprise side (okay: mainframe), you have to factor in CPU time and try to minimize that. "Minimize" and "continuous" however, are near contradictions. The IBM Rational Development and Test Environment for System z can change that. It provides an emulated z/OS environment on Intel or Intel compatible hardware, making continuous test of enterprise apps easy and affordable.

Closing Key Note: Software Failure Analysis in the Medical Device Industry
Bad product quality can haunt companies long after release. Root Cause Analysis (RCA) on product quality issues is an indispensible step to avoid and prevent these from happening again. Unfortunately, industry (including medical devices industry) is struggling with doing proper RCA on their software-intensive devices. Using real-life, often embarrassing examples, Jan shares the pitfalls of RCA and illustrates the power of doing proper RCA on critical failures, elaborating on a wide-scale study on today’s RCA practices and his wide background in forensic failure analysis. A perfect opportunity to learn and benchmark one’s own RCA practices.
