Refreshments and Networking opportunity for participants.

Business Agility is something many organisations are striving for. Yet it often is a difficult goal to achieve as the existing culture, processes and systems architectures are obstacles for the transformation. In this session Mirco will explore the transformation journey and how decoupling heritage systems from digital systems can enable new ways to engage stakeholders. This decoupling can also enable new ways of working internally and uplifting the engineering capabilities. Something we all need to do in the age of “Software is eating the world”
