Leading Software Industry and Digital Transformation Experts Unveil BizOps Manifesto

BOSTON, Oct. 13, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — The BizOps Coalition, which advocates for fundamental change in the way business and IT collaborate in modern software development, today announced its BizOps Manifesto, a new framework designed to connect technology investments to business outcomes.

Leaders across industries have learned that too often, software investments are not tied to business outcomes. A recent survey revealed that 78 percent of respondents said the disconnect between IT and business units results in significant costs[1]. This misalignment often creates waste and hinders productivity and innovation.

“The harsh, ‘new normal’ reality requires a significant focus on connecting business metrics and outcomes to every IT product and project. To accomplish these objectives, IT leadership teams require pragmatic operating models and frameworks that reduce business risks and increase operational and team efficiencies,” said Stephen Elliot, program vice president, Management Software and DevOps at IDC. “IT and business leaders who adopt BizOps have a great opportunity to win now, drive more team collaboration, deliver business outcomes, and thrive in the future.”

The BizOps Coalition

The BizOps Coalition is focused on the advancement and adoption of the BizOps methodology. In addition, the group provides thought leadership, education and best practices BizOps strategies via the bizops.com platform. 

Founding members and BizOps Manifesto authors include Dr. Mik Kersten, founder & CEO of Tasktop; Serge Lucio, vice president and general manager of the Enterprise Software Division, Broadcom; Patrick Tickle, chief product officer, Planview;  Sally Elatta, CEO of AgilityHealth; Evan Leybourn, CEO of Business Agility Institute; Tom Davenport, distinguished author and professor; Dave West, founder of Scrum.org Kevin Surace, chairman/CTO of Appvance.ai and many others.

“BizOps helps improve development cycles, streamline business operations, and ultimately, accelerates digital transformation for many organizations,” said Serge Lucio

Link Building is Still Highly Relevant for SEO in 2020, Say Experts – Press Release

Many website owners have faced the following scenario quite often: After creating and publishing the best piece of content ever on their website, they sit back and hope to see it show up in Google – and then, nothing happens.

Holbaek (Denmark), and Karlsruhe (Germany) — Two guys from Denmark (Brian Petersen) and Germany(Fabian Pott) are dealing with the same struggle as every other website owners: SEO.

Is Link Building Dead

“Build it, and they would come” does not seem to work, say the two. Especially on a brand-new domain without any authority in the eyes of Google.

“Without a reputation, you are a nobody, and Google needs to see and understand that you have relevance to rank you in Google – and the secret sauce is to gain links from sites that already have gained trust and authority,” says Brian Petersen.

By gaining links from relevant sites in a niche, it is possible to increase website authority.

When a website starts to gain authority, it also starts to rank for more search phrases and is gaining more organic (non-paid) traffic.

“Think about external links as road signs – the more signs that point to a specific location, the more sure you can be that you are on the right track – that is how Google reads links. A link from a website with high authority is like a giant billboard road sign,” adds Brian Petersen.

“Link building seems to be one of the hardest struggles for everybody who works with SEO. This is usually the part of SEO that most of my clients are more than happy to outsource,” says Fabian Pott.

Link building does not need to be complicated, he says. Almost every blog on the internet relies on a steady stream of quality content for its readers.

Nurturing next generation leaders and experts; two paths to prosperity

The digital transformation underway across all sectors of the economy means that demand for technology professionals is soaring.

Even before the pandemic, it was clear that demand for technology skills and leadership was on the march. A study conducted by Faethm in association with the Australian Computer Society (ACS) reveals that although automation and AI are going to transform all industry sectors and displace some workers, over the coming 15 years as many as 5.6 million new jobs could be added to the Australian economy – a quarter of them in technology-related roles.

The annual Digital Pulse report – prepared by Deloitte for the ACS – suggests that the nation’s technology workforce will grow by just over 3 per cent for the next five years, and reach a million people by 2027. It’s an encouraging trajectory but an organisation like Iress, a fintech which is founded on solving complex problems with technology, needs capable, intelligent people who like solving complex problems now. It needs people who are skilled at collaborating with colleagues both face to face and online, and schooled in agile approaches to problem-solving. And it needs leaders to help them do that.

The challenge for organisations as they navigate their skills requirements is to pay careful attention to different career trajectories. Is an individual best placed as an expert or leader? Where does their passion lie? What are their aspirations and how can they be nurtured?

A resilient, next-generation workforce emerges by balancing the skills equation carefully – nurturing leaders and investing in the skills of experts.

Iress chief technology officer Andrew Todd says: “In my experience, career progression has often been a path of becoming a technical specialist in the role – whatever the technical speciality might be – then you become a team leader, a

Trudeau’s internet funds will be difficult to coordinate: experts

Experts say Justin Trudeau’s Liberal government is going to have a challenging time coordinating between different departments to roll out funding for broadband internet projects as the Canadian Infrastructure Bank (CIB) announced $2 billion to connect Canadians.

Trudeau, with Infrastructure Minister Catherine McKenna, and Michael Sabia, chair of the board of the CIB, announced Thursday the $10 billion CIB’s growth plan in an effort to support Canada’s COVID-19 economic recovery. 

The additional $1 billion from the CIB that was announced in the 2019 budget, will connect about 750,000 homes and small businesses to broadband services in “underserved communities,” over the next three years. Sabia said funds from today’s announcement will be rolled out by the end of 2020.

John Lawford, executive director and general counsel of the Public Interest Advocacy Centre, said in an interview that while the announcement is positive, it is more of a political move under the “excuse of COVID.”

“I haven’t seen a coordinated government thing. This is yet another sort of political layer of funding on top of all the other political layers of funding on top of the very inadequate CRTC fund,” Lawford said. 

Since 2016, the government has announced various funds to help connect more Canadians to broadband services. This includes the $585 million Connect to Innovate program administered through the Innovation, Science and Economic Development Ministry; the $1.7 billion Universal Broadband Fund administered through the Rural Economic Development Ministry; and $2 billion that would be brought in through private investment announced in the 2019 budget. 

The CRTC also announced its own $750M Broadband Fund in late 2016. 

In the 2019 budget, the government pledged to connect 100 per cent of Canadians to broadband internet services by
