Adopting Usability in an Agile Environment

Gem, User Experience Engineer of OutSystems, closed track 2 sessions by talking about how usability and agility can work well together. Gem started by highlighting the similarities between usability and Agile, including the fact that they are iterative and that they both mean extra value for the company. But, as Gem pointed out, there are also some fundamental differences, including the fact that usability is slower than Agility and most feedback is gathered from outside the team, as opposed to coming from the team. Because of this, mixing both can be a challenge, and Gem pointed out some pitfalls that should be avoided. The main point here was that, if you try to mix the traditional way of doing usability - using an independent usability team with a long usability analysis - the usability professionals will struggle and the results will be poor. After all, by the tim... (more)

CloudEXPO Stories
"Calligo is a cloud service provider with data privacy at the heart of what we do. We are a typical Infrastructure as a Service cloud provider but it's been designed around data privacy," explained Julian Box, CEO and co-founder of Calligo, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 21st Cloud Expo, held Oct 31 – Nov 2, 2017, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Michael Burley, a Senior Business Development Executive in IT Services at NetApp, described how NetApp designed a three-year program of work to migrate 25PB of a major telco's enterprise data to a new STaaS platform, and then secured a long-term contract to manage and operate the platform. This significant program blended the best of NetApp’s solutions and services capabilities to enable this telco’s successful adoption of private cloud storage and launching of virtual storage services to its enterprise market.
When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it’s important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. “Fly two mistakes high” is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, will discuss how this same philosophy can be applied to highly scaled applications, and can dramatically increase your resilience to failure.
