Imagine you're working on a major project such as Healthcare.gov. Suddenly, you realize there's no way the software will be done on time -- or even work. What do you do? Hear how veteran testers, project managers and developers tactfully handle such situations.
EMC recently experienced a minor internal data center outage that could have been a major problem. The episode, a result of a lightening strike, would typically send users pointing fingers at IT, which while quick to solve problems, was not always adept at communicating its plan.
I attended the recent EMC World, which is one of the best events for press and analysts because it tailors its program for us and our specific needs. There was a nice balance of group sessions and one-on-ones. One of the sessions I found fascinating was given by Scott Darling from EMC Ventures about EMC's venture funding efforts.
