On October 27, in Kyiv, a large-scale conference Software Development Forum will take place, which has been the communication platform for the leaders of the domestic IT business for the sixth consecutive year. The organizer of the event is IT Ukraine Association - the largest community of service IT companies operating in Ukraine.
What's on the agenda
Traditionally, the focus of the conference is three key topics for the IT industry: Global Competition, Business Development and Human Capital, in which more than 20 local and international experts share their own experience and insights with the audience.
In addition to speakers' speeches, the Software Development Forum will present the results of a large-scale industry research on the financial performance of the Ukrainian IT industry, conducted by the Association in partnership with the Better Regulation Delivery Office (BRDO).
Of course, SDF will not run without expert discussions. The topic for discussion between government officials and top management of IT business will be the development of the domestic IT market, the growing role of creative industries and their impact on the global competitiveness of countries
One industry - different goals
Each of the three thematic blocks will be featured by top-notch international experts, including Kerry Hallard, Global Sourcing Association; Jan Erik Aase, ISG Research; Daniel Riley, Aon Hewitt.
This year, Software Development Forum members will have 2 specialized tracks: Visionary and Aspirational, whose topics are tailored to meet the needs of different IT companies.
Visionary - a track for medium and large companies that form the basis of the Ukrainian IT industry and are already active in business with markets in many countries. During this flow, along with the participants and experts, we will talk about the advantages and disadvantages of positioning the IT industry in Ukraine, the best cases for scaling through mergers and acquisitions, modern approaches to attracting young talents, the impact of corporate culture on company performance, and more.
Aspirational - part of the forum, created for representatives of small companies that are rapidly developing and strive for sustainable growth. Among the key topics of the track are the main stages of the development of a successful IT company, attraction of investments and additional financing, effective cooperation between Sales and Delivery departments, topical HR metrics and HR retention programs.
All participants will be free to visit both streams, regardless of the type of ticket.
