Join long time RLF speaker and human resources consultant Dr. Alise Cortez in a discussion on finding and encouraging the engagement of our strengths and those of the ones we lead and love. How many times do you remember hearing throughout your life, "You have to get better at 'X'," or "You really need to learn to overcome 'Y' weakness"? Our culture seems intent to focus on what we need to improve, rather than what we naturally excel at. While we do need to understand and manage our weaknesses, we are far better served to have a firm understanding of our strengths and work to leverage them to the fullest in the work we do, especially as leaders.

Platform as a service (PaaS) offers tremendous potential to accelerate organizational agility and lower cost. Avanade believes immediate value can be generated by moving pieces of an application rather than the whole solution. We call that "an edge application". Developing edge applications provides immediate value, lowers costs, and allows you to maintain control on security and data. We'll share the experiences of several companies that took an edge approach to existing solutions written in .NET, Java, PHP and COBOL. We'll share ideas and practices on utilizing Azure to get quicker access to data, to better collaborate with partners, suppliers, vendors and customers, and learn key developmental milestones in utilizing PaaS.
