Today’s successful enterprises are quicker than their competition when it comes to rolling out and updating externally facing apps and online services. We at Serena have found that Orchestrated IT helps achieve this sort of IT agility. And we’ve also found that the heroes who work in world-class IT organizations tend to like craft beers. Surprised? I think not.
So we’re looking to celebrate IT agility through poetry, haikus in particular. The winning haiku will win a full year of monthly craft beer deliveries.
Of course the contest is being held on Twitter under the hashtag #GiveITaBeer.
So tap into your creative side for a chance to win beer for a year or cash prizes. Simply thank IT or describe IT agility in the form of a tweeted, 17-syllable Haiku. The contest will kick off on Monday, August 27, 2012 at 9:01 a.m. PT and ends September 21, 2012 at 12:01 p.m. PT.
To enter, write and submit a Haiku poem (Three lines of 5-7-5 syllables) showing your appreciation for IT Agility. Each line of the Haiku should be separated by a period, comma or slash. All entries must be submitted via Twitter to @Serena_Software and include the hash tag #GiveITaBeer.
This is your chance to win yourself or your IT department Beer for a Year!
A panel of judges will select winners based on creativity, humor and relevance. Winners will be announced via Twitter on Monday, September 24, 2012.
