Here’s what we’ll discuss:

As economic volatility persists into 2024, businesses are under pressure to optimize costs, increase efficiencies, and invest in long-term resilience over short-term growth.

IT leaders are caught in the middle. They must support the day-to-day business, as well as these new initiatives, and keep their teams and budgets lean without adding more costs.

The answer to this challenge lies in consolidating bloated tech stacks, integrating business systems, and automating work wherever possible. Join this virtual wine tasting & thought leadership session to openly discuss these challenges and share strategies that have worked for you and your peers.

Topics we’ll discuss include:

  • Building a long-term application strategy
  • Mapping opportunities for automating processes and services
  • Approaches to creating a fully integrated tech stack
  • Giving business teams the freedom to choose tools without duplicated systems or creating data silos
  • Enabling business users and junior team members to better support IT efforts
