Piet Middelkoop, CEO of Van Ameyde, describes how Agile Methodologies can help deliver complex enterprise systems

Maarssen, The Netherlands - 23 February 2007

Piet Middelkoop, CEO of Van Ameyde, will be the keynote speaker during OutSystems “The Next Step 2007” event.

During his presentation on “How to Survive Complex Projects”, Piet Middelkoop, will share his experience and explain how Van Ameyde is adopting Agile Methodologies and OutSystems Platform to deliver an European claims handling system, that will connect over 400 employees across 14 countries and integrated with several modules of the SAP system.

The pressure on IT departments to deliver working business solutions in record time is increasing. When these projects include multiple integration scenarios, several geographically dispersed user profiles, aggressive and ever-changing businesses, the complexity increases by an order of magnitude, the quality of the final solution is seriously compromised and the traditional IT methodologies are inadequate.

With an impressive track record of leading IT departments to deliver value-added business solutions in complex environments, Piet Middelkoop will present a real case of agility and efficiency.
