The IT Renaissance

Monday 11:30am - 12:00pm, IITP (IITP Room 1)

The world is changing the way it thinks about IT.

Cloud, Agile, BYOD, DevOps and user forums are surface manifestations of something deeper and more fundamental – a shift in the way people view IT.

All of these developments are liberating the IT process from constraint, rigidity, and cumbersome complexity.

This is the IT renaissance - built upon the notion that people deserve to be respected and empowered. We are now talking about the humanity of IT, and focusing on behaviour, culture and beliefs.

Our IT world is changing like it never did before. We look at the big picture and its implications.
