Last Thursday I presented at the Wellington ITx Conference on the topic 'Moving From Legacy To The Future – Can You Get There From Here?'.
Equinox IT was very pleased to last night host NZRise for their 'fireside chat' between Miki Szikszai and Privacy Commissioner John Edwards. Following the discussion NZRise also held their AGM event at Equinox IT.
Agile projects can often be like a first dance lesson where everyone is treading on each other's toes. We often are asked at Equinox IT about the roles of Project Manager and Scrum Master for Agile projects. Are they both needed? What are the boundaries? Should they be combined?
Nearly every organisation is somewhere on their cloud journey - at Equinox IT we spend a lot of time helping organisations to decide how rapidly they can safely transition their systems. While there are technical constraints, mostly these are conversations about the risk appetite of the organisation, and what rate of change both users and IT staff are able to cope with. Many organisations associate their current technologies, structures and operating models with low-risk and perceive rapid change as increasing risk - when in reality not changing fast enough can put them at greater risk.
