Abstract

30 years.

That is how long Materialise has been an innovative company in an industry with the potential to disrupt a big part of the make industry. As we grew into a leading global additive manufacturing software provider, we also moved from an unconsciously agile organization into an organization where managing strategy and alignment across different teams, units and regions turned out to be a challenge. As the organization reached new highs, things like functional silos and hierarchy found their way in. While certainly providing some benefits, they also made us lose part of our ability to quickly respond to market challenges.

Today, both start-ups and existing players in the market are forcing us to rethink our ways of working. Putting lean agile principles and practices again full front and center, to stay ahead of the competition.

In this session, we want to share some of the highlights and achievements on our journey towards business agility so far, as well as some of the challenges we see for the immediate future.

About Thomas Moens

Solution Manager, Materialise
Thomas started as a software developer at Materialise in 2003.

He experienced first-hand the growth of a Belgian start-up with less than 200 employees, to a global organization of over 2000 employees. In this period, Thomas performed multiple roles, going from software developer, project manager, development manager, product management director to solution manager.

More recently, after being inspired by the agile movement years ago, Thomas has also taken an active role as a change agent in the lean-agile transformation at Materialise Software.

Abstract

If you look up the definition of “Digital Transformation”, you will find something like:

“Digital Transformation is the adoption of digital technology to transform services or businesses, through replacing non-digital or manual processes with digital processes or replacing older digital technology with newer digital technology". Now, that means one hundred different things, and nothing, and says nothing about the "Why?".

The reasons for business to embrace newer digital technology are very diverse and usually have an intention to improve the current set-up, situation or way of working.

Sometimes that reason is more straightforward and is just the difference between being able to continue to work or not.

In this session, we will share a customer story, in which “transformation at speed” (and in the midst of a pandemic) was absolutely required, to be able to keep the business up and running.

Abstract

Mobile apps have taken over large parts of the software industry. These apps and games vary in size, complexity, business model, price and lifespan, which makes it difficult as a software professional to create your own toolkit to verify and validate the quality of these apps. There are, however, quite some industry secrets embedded in those pieces of software.

This talk will help you - as a tester, but also as a developer or analyst - to better understand how apps are created (or should be created). I will elaborate on the design patterns in these apps and how users are unconsciously tricked into spending more time on their smartphone or tablet.

How can we verify the efficiency and effectiveness of the design pattern, even improve the pattern based on our feedback, or take a step back and try to get rid of our digital addictions?

Come and find out!

Abstract

Ignoring paperless and digitalization projects nowadays in our daily and professional life is nearly impossible. However, going paperless and digital just to become ‘digital’, is not generating a lot of increased value on its own.

The power of digitalization can have a much higher impact, when upfront strategic thinking on how data should look like, how it is structured, what data formats are required for data analytics, etc. is done.

Some key takeaways of a global standardized digitalization project to improve operational efficiency, faster-to-market strategy, data analytics and increased compliance and audit-readiness, will be discussed in this presentation.
