Driving Digital Innovation in Legacy - Discussion Forum
Technology disruption is driving new opportunities and threats for existing businesses. However, digital innovation in established businesses is often challenged by the technical debts and costs related to modernizing legacy systems.
Join us on March 7th in Toronto, where we will explore some of the digital decoupling strategies and modern technologies that help to alleviate the issues. We will also discuss some of the challenges and lessons-learned in helping established businesses to unlock their potential.
