The Foundation for Success
Market pressure is continuously high and it seems that organizations will only continue to survive if features are delivered fast. However, focusing on fast delivery is leaving behind most often not only quality yet as well innovation. But especially innovation is a guarantee for long-term success. Unfortunately it is seldom possible, to take a time-out for developing innovative ideas. Therefore, it is important to understand innovation as a general or rather a continuous strategy. This year’s OOP focuses on implementing such a strategy in the field of software development. We’re striving to answer the following questions: what kinds of innovative tools, architectures, and techniques allow innovation to happen or are innovative inherently; which languages and designs support innovation without undermining quality; and what kind of leadership and corporate culture enables innovation?
Also this year we want to emphasize the interaction and networking of all participants. Tabletop football or the OpenArena, where you can elaborate topics of interest in more detail, provide a perfect platform for doing so.
I’m looking forward to welcoming you at the conference!
