The Ohio State University CETI Industry Day - June 11th on Agile Practices in the Enterprise

The next CETI EA Forum and the CETI Industry Day, to be held at The Ohio State University on Thursday June 11th on Agile Practices in the Enterprise. This EA Forum will have a panel-based theme as follows:

As Information Technology organizations that support large enterprises are being asked to do more with less, Agile practices in areas ranging from application development, project management and enterprise architecture, have become increasingly relevant as a means of delivering business value cheaper, faster and with higher quality. In this panel, the panelists from Nationwide Insurance, Gap Inc., Pillar Technology, Thoughtworks and CETI will present unique experiences and research on a range of highly relevant Agile topics.

The forum will begin with a keynote from Roy Singham, Founder and Chairman of Thoughtworks Inc. I had the honor and privilege of meeting Roy on a visit to Thoughtworks earlier this year; his offer to keynote was one simply not to be refused!

Panelists will be:

  • Peter Dean, Gap Inc.
  • Matt Lewis, Gap Inc.
  • Tom Bihari, Nationwide Inc.
  • Jen Stille, Thoughtworks Inc.
  • Aman Kumar, CETI
