Management consulting firms are only too happy to provide senior executives with the broad strokes of a digital strategy, explaining how realigning technology investments to address changing customer demands can improve the competitiveness of the organization.
Correspondingly, system integrators and other technology consulting firms are cashing in on digital technology deployments, as they build out mobile applications and cloud-based services that free their customers from the clutches of legacy technology.
The problem is that there is a substantial gap in the middle between these two extremes. Digital strategies must be technology empowered, and digital technology efforts must go hand-in-hand with organizational transformation for digital efforts to succeed.
To bridge these extremes, enterprises must rethink their application development strategy. On the one hand, it must be customer-focused. On the other, it must take advantage of modern advances in technology, including the cloud, streaming data, containers and microservices, and artificial intelligence, to name a few.
By rethinking application development, this workshop will empower anyone with one foot in technology and the other in business to help their organizations transform for the new digital reality. Regardless of role, however, digital transformation has changed the game.
