Rivers Agile is pleased to invite you to attend our seminar on ensuring the desirability, feasibility and vability of software at the Pittsburgh Technology Council. Apps, both mobile and web, are being launched into the wild at alarming rates, many of which will fail. Why? Most products are vetted well as to wether they can be built and fit within the company's business model. Few companies take the time to ensure that consumers actually want and need the product. Join us as we discuss our philosophy that successful solutions are achieved when a balance between user needs and business needs is found.  This seminar will answer questions such as: What makes a product desirable? Why is it important to challenge what you think you know about your customers? What is the difference between a need and a want? What does the balance of desirability, feasibility and viability look like? What steps should you take now to ensure the success of your product? This is a must-attend seminar for any department involved in software development!  Event Agenda 3:00 - 3:30 Networking3:30 - 4:30 Presentation 4:30 - 5:00 Q&A Session Other DetailsThis event is free to attend.Feel free to bring a guest.You do not need a printed ticket to attend this event.
