Conference addresses the shift that is occurring at the nexus of continuous delivery, data-driven experimentation, and qualitative user feedback
Split, the feature experimentation company, announced today its first conference focused on insights-driven product development, DECISIONS 2018, to be held on October 2, 2018 at the newly renovated JW Marriott Hotel in San Francisco. DECISIONS is the only event that brings engineers, product managers, data scientists, and thought leaders together in a single forum, to explore how teams are making insights-driven decisions to build software and deliver exceptional product experiences.
The continuous delivery of user value is top of mind for product development teams today. Core to their approach is a focus on real-time decision making in every step of the workflow – from product development, to delivery and finally to the measurement of outcomes. The issue these teams are now facing, is how to iterate on those decisions within a closed feedback loop. This first annual conference will feature a mix of keynote sessions, expert panels and fireside chats with industry leaders from today’s dynamic organizations to explore challenges, trends and best practices.
Keynote speakers at DECISIONS 2018 include:
- MJ Hegar: American War Hero, author of Shoot Like a Girl, currently running for Congress.
- Jez Humble: Co-author of Accelerate, and co-founder of DevOps Research Association (DORA)
- Ronny Kohavi: General Manager at Microsoft, Analysis and Experimentation
- Dan Olsen: Author of Lean Product Playbook, and Product Management Expert
- Adil Aijaz: CEO and co-founder of Split Software
“The speed of innovation in the software industry is exhilarating, but can be quite daunting for product development teams,” said Adil Aijaz, chief executive officer at Split. “It impacts how products are developed and has given rise to an entirely new set of tools and processes – not to mention the cultural transformation of the teams who adopt them. This transformation has created a struggle for teams wanting to make the right decisions at every step in the workflow, while delivering risk-free, valuable software. We feel a deep responsibility to provide a platform that can facilitate an exchange of ideas amongst everyone impacted – Engineers, Product Managers, and Data Scientists – so that as a community we work smarter, deliver better software, and continue to move faster.”
