The Albany IIBA Chapter is excited to host our third annual professional development day. This will be a fantastic opportunity for you to expand your skills set, learn about the latest industry trends, and network with your colleagues. You will also be eligible to claim up to six CDUs and PDUs for attending. We are happy to be able to bring this value-packed event to the capital district.

This year's theme:

Projects are becoming more complex with organizations asking for more to be delivered, in less time. Being stuck in the middle, SDLC professionals MUST take the time to prepared, or get blindsided and left behind.

2018 is the year volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity (VUCA) comes to a head. New concepts like internet of things, (IoT), big data, digital transformation (DX), containerization, machine learning/AI, SAFe, and DevOps are being introduced. These concepts will lead to multiple projects, going in multiple directions, with technologies that impact the heart and soul of how work is done. Organizations want as much of it incorporated as possible. And as usual, they want it delivered quickly and correctly.

This year’s conference is designed to provide a one-day program that covers these next generation topics, helping you plan your professional development to meet the demands. The program is like career insurance – a little investment now will save a ton of pain later.

The program has two keynotes that focus on leadership, as well as two overall tracks that have two mini-focus subject areas within those tracks.

7:45 Breakfast and Registration
