AI Day for SDLC Professionals Conference

Using Generative AI in Software Projects to Drive Productivity and Value Creation

AI Day is a one-day, live virtual conference catered to:

  • Software Development Directors
  • IT Management
  • Project Management and PMO Leadership
  • Business Analysts
  • Agile Professionals
  • Testers
  • Developers


Enhance real-world skills for the application of generative AI technologies in supporting complex projects. Gain techniques on how different roles can employ AI tools to boost productivity.

Topics covered include:

  • AI in Agile Teams
  • How BAs, Testers, and Project Managers can leverage AI
  • Available generative AI options
  • Building and provisioning generative AI systems
  • ...and much more!


While large firms might block public tools like ChatGPT-4, closed solutions that are public (non-data-sharing) are currently available. Companies can also set up their private environments. Learn about these options and best practices during the conference.

Generative AI offers professionals the ability to achieve valuable outcomes with reduced risk and enhanced productivity. The primary goal is allowing more time for reflection, testing, and discovery. Rightly used, these tools aid in understanding what to build and why, facilitating testing and learning prior to project execution.

Gaining an understanding of generative AI and its application in your role is crucial, irrespective of your company's current adoption. Most companies will soon be integrating it and will expect their employees to possess the relevant skills.

Attending this conference is an investment in your future career and earning potential.
