Predavanje je v angleškem jeziku.
In the fast-paced, ever-evolving world of software development, are you struggling with the complexity of managing a portfolio of products or projects? This session is designed to help you navigate this complexity, offering practical insights into effective portfolio management using Azure DevOps. Building on the principles of Scrum and Agile frameworks, we will explore how Azure DevOps can support multiple teams, products, and projects, providing each team with complete control over their work and transparent insight into their status. At the same time, the management team retains overall control through real-time insight into the progress of all teams. Azure DevOps' comprehensive suite of tools can facilitate portfolio management and enterprise-level prioritization, enabling organizations to align their strategic goals with team-level activities. This alignment ensures that all work contributes to the organization's goals, thereby optimally addressing often conflicting internal needs and effectively satisfying the requirements of multiple clients. A key focus of our session will be the crucial role of managing dependencies in a scaled environment. How can you stay on top of this complex work? We will illustrate and demonstrate how teams can use Azure DevOps' Delivery Plans to understand and track dependencies with ease and in a highly visual and transparent manner. If you are already using a scaled development process or are considering your options, we invite you to join us and see how Azure DevOps can simplify this otherwise daunting task. Bring your questions and experiences. We will provide answers and share insights from the front lines.
