How to Analyse your Business to Identify the Changes that Need to Happen -
Uploaded on September 08, 2010
When working with software development it is challenging to see through all the (some times contradicting) requirements being set forward from all sides of the business. This session will give you an overview of how business analysis can be applied to not only understand how the business works but also provide you with methological tools to improve it. A key factor here is to not only look at what the IT systems can do. You will also have to look at how IT is used, what kind of communication is going on and how the organization and its departments are structured.

Keynote: How Do You Know What You Know... -
Uploaded on October 09, 2008
The technical decisions we make are based on things we know. But how did we get to know what we know in the first place? Did we learn it from trusted advisors? Technical forums? Experience? Word of mouth from peers? Importantly, how does the way we learned what we know affect the decisions we make every day?

Maps in Apps Using JDeveloper ADF -
Uploaded on June 17, 2011
For many centuries people have relied on maps to capture and simplify these complex relationships, turning them into readily consumable, powerful packages of unambiguous information. This is truer today when trying to capture the complexity of interactions among people, resources, products, and business processes distributed over geographic space. Organizations, and business, now require spatial analysis and visualization capabilities such as displaying fixed or mobile assets, or key performance indicators on a map view rather than just tables, charts, or gauges.

Using Periodic Audits to Prevent Catastrophic Project Failure -
Uploaded on October 09, 2008
Most large software project failures could have been prevented if someone had bothered to take an objective look at the progress of the system at key points along the way. Even if an audit doesn't prevent the project from failing, discovering serious problems earlier in the project life cycle can save both time and money. Software system audits are, in and of themselves, significant projects. They cannot be accomplished by a single individual interviewing a few members of the development team over a few days. An effective audit requires a skilled team of individuals examining the functional adequacy of the system, the quality of the database design, system security, flexibility, and scalability over time. This presentation will outline the key points in a project when these audits should be performed, how to select the audit team, and the information that can be gained from the results of the audit. A case study chronicling the audit of a large financial system built in a developing nation will be included.
