In partnership with:
Fixing the developer experience to unlock innovation
- Thursday, 6th of October
- 12.55 to 2 pm
- Location: Virtual
Companies are hitting a wall. They have gone as far as they could with improvements in the UI and customer experience layer, but don’t have the access to the data they need for truly data-driven innovation. Data is tied up in legacy ERP systems, obsolete proprietary formats or dozens of unconnected applications.
The struggle to attract, hire and retain talent for lots of legacy systems also creates skills gaps that slow down many organisations. Moving to a more coherent, simplified architecture, with modern tooling that automates away the really boring stuff, creates an environment that developers want to work in.
Join this Digital Boardroom to explore what a modern developer platform looks like and how to
- build high-performance teams on Agile and DevOps principles
- equip the organisation with a culture of delivery
- deliver new products faster and achieve Digital Greatness
