Become An Agent Of Transformation

The theme this year is all about the need to be become an Agent of Transformation. So what is an Agent of Transformation? Well, the reality is that tech and software innovation is happening at a phenomenal rate. You only need to think about the last decade, which has brought us the modern smartphone plus advances in machine learning and artificial intelligence, to understand that our relationship with technology is changing. The truth is that digital services, powered via software and apps, are becoming more ingrained with our daily lives and the next couple of decades will see incredible advances for businesses and for our careers.

This is what our opening keynote will highlight, while this innovation will be exciting, it will also change the way we use and think about technology. That’s why it’s our responsibility as technologists to ensure that tech innovation drives positive benefits – for our teams, our businesses, our families and importantly, for our careers. AppDynamics is making a call for all technologists to become an Agent of Transformation and we will show you a blueprint to achieve this.

AppDynamics Customers Tell Their Stories

Whether that’s improving customer experience, ensuring that application performance drives business value or using real-time performance information to improve IT and business processes – aligning AppDynamics to your business challenges is vital to realizing benefits.

Join us and hear Robin Steen, IT Leader at Statoil, talk about ‘What Does Normal Look Like?’. In this session he will discuss how Statoil are taking a strategic approach to APM adoption and where they are in their journey. Having had a sneak peak at his content, I know this will be a popular session. Robin will cover the role that APM played in the digitalization at Statoil and how real-time application and business performance intelligence can transform your partner management processes, amongst other areas.

The last session of the day will be a customer panel session titled ‘Tales From The Enterprise, How To Get APM Right’. This will be a perfect follow up to Robin’s presentation, as we will have Hans Karlsson, Service Area Leader Application Operation Management & SAP, at Volvo Group, Staffan Spjuth, Application Management Engineer, at Visma Spcs AB and a couple of other enterprise customers up on stage as part of the panel. This promises to be a lively session in which topics such as continuous delivery, DevOps and the cloud will be discussed in regards to APM. Firaas Rashid, ex-Director and Head of Production at Credit Suisse, and now AppDynamics CTO for Europe will lead the conversation.

Become An AppD Master

There will be three sessions delivered by AppDynamics experts focused on how to ensure strategic adoption of AppDynamics and to help you become an Agent of Transformation. We are very proud of our Business iQ product as it has changed the game when it comes to managing both application and business performance. The ability to analyze and correlate user, with application and business performance data is an industry first, and so the session on ‘Unlock The Power of Real-Time Performance Data With Business iQ’ is not to be missed. It will cover the core use cases for Business iQ and the challenges it solves!
