Don’t ask customers what they want
Innovations that click with consumers — becoming part of their lives, not just glitz admired in the media — align with deep-seated needs. Merely asking what people want seldom uncovers these needs, because people focus immediately on solutions and technologies that are already in mind. To get to the root sources of demand, it is critical to ask the right question: What are people trying to get done in their lives but find frustration with?
Outsourcing will not survive: how financial markets and IT companies work in the face of accelerating change
Dmitry will speak about how the financial markets are changing from the IT services provider point of view, and why the old work models are losing relevance. Who puts pressure on the global financial business, what difficulties does it face, and what tasks does its suppliers have to confront? Why do a number of fashionable technologies still remain an unattainable dream for the markets, and some are back in fashion after previous failures? And how do IT companies adapt to maintain their businesses and grow them?

Taming the whale: the experience of a large outsource project
How would you organize the work of a team of 150 people that are developing a single application? And what if the project is not divided into independent subprojects?

We will talk about the life cycle of such a project, the possibilities of scaling typical methodologies that arise from these problems, and best practices and anti-patterns which should be taken into account in such projects.
Digitalization: a designer’s view
The time has come when most of the old and clumsy financial giants are moving from using pen-and-paper and Excel towards digital solutions. Designers as members of development teams play an important role in creating useful Enterprise products. In this presentation, Dmitry will tell you what to do when the clients don’t understand the importance of design, and how designers help solve issues both within the team and when communicating with the client.
