PegaWorld 2017

PegaWorld Technical Bootcamps

Bootcamps are deep dive tracks led by Pega subject matter experts, offered on Wednesday, June 7 from 8:30am-3:00pm. We gathered your feedback and designed these sessions around the topics that are important to you. Each session is 90 minutes and combines lecture with hands-on practice. Each track features three in-depth sessions that build on one-another, therefore attendees are not able to jump from track to track. You will enhance your proficiency and know-how, and leave with concrete experience and knowledge to drive better customer experiences.

Add a Bootcamp to your PegaWorld registration for $300. A personal laptop (Mac or PC) is required. Tracks 1,2 and 3 are limited to 75 people and track 4 is limited to 55 people.

Directly Capturing Objectives (DCO) the Next Generation, Going Rogue

Developing and organizing project artifacts has always been a time consuming, and costly task. It can also be very challenging to keep these artifacts in context of the application being developed or the conversations being had. Pega7’s new real-time DCO capabilities help make real-time artifact capture and feedback much more effective and efficient. During this session you will see how to streamline the artifact creation process while ensuring higher quality business solutions. You will participate in the creation of artifacts that you can use during your projects to help ensure better success, faster deployments, and higher quality.

Achieving Faster Delivery by “Minding the ‘Gap’” and Going Agile

Pega’s clients are always looking for more effective and efficient ways of scoping, sizing and delivering projects to realize business value. Pega has developed a delivery strategy focused on addressing client needs through out of the box functionality. Join this session on Pega’s new Gap Analysis Implementation Approach. We will leverage an Agile delivery model to learn the core concepts, hear how the approach works in the field, understand best practices and see how Pega’s approach helps achieve business value sooner.

User Experience Agility - How to Design Using an Agile Methodology

The Agile software development process works brilliantly once a design is in place. However, what if that design is poor? Just how do you account for design changes and problems within the Agile software development process? In this session you will learn from our Center of Excellence (COE) and UX experts how best to manage the all-important design process to ensure that you are not only producing results quickly, but that they are the right results.
