Nanomorphics: The Age of Accelerated Change

Join us for a exclusive and unique presentation on “Nanomorphics: The Age of Accelerated Change,” by The Standish Group and the Antwerp Management School. In Thomas Friedman’s new book Thank You for Being Late: An Optimist's Guide to Thriving in the Age of Accelerations, he writes that we are in a global state of increasing change. No area of commerce is more affected by the rapidly changing world than with development of software.

Nanomorphics is the ability to manage rapid and constant change in tiny events. This will require a continuous pipeline of new services delivered in realtime that are unencumbered by poor coupling. Nanomorphics is also unconstrained by project budgets, plans, and process. Nanomorphics delivers a new and up-to-date system every day!

The presentation will be done in three parts:

Introduction to Nanomorphics, by Professor Jim Johnson, Chairman of The Standish Group and faculty member of Antwerp Management School. In Part 1, Jim will define Nanomorphics; present the Nanomorphic framework; and provide the latest Standish Group CHAOS statistics on the success and failure of software projects and the root causes of project failure.

Introduction to Normalized Systems, by Dr. Jan Verelst, professor and co-founder of the Normalized Systems Institute (NSI) at the Faculty of Applied Economics of the University of Antwerp. In Part 2, Jan will define Normalized Systems, which is at the heart of Nanomorphics for software projects. Jan will present the properties of Normalized Systems and how the Normalized Systems robots work in the Nanomorphic framework.

Demonstrations of Normalized Systems, by Herwig Mannaert, Vice-Dean of the Faculty of Applied Economics at the University of Antwerp. In Part 3, Herwig will show how easy it is to set up the Normalized Systems robot to create structured applications to eliminate the coupling problem of microservices working with the Nanomorphic framework. Herwig will provide case studies of projects that use Normalized Systems, including major projects at the Dutch and Belgium Tax Offices. These role models show how Nanomorphics works in the real world.

After the presentations, the professors will be available for casual conversations.
