How CIOs can Drive a Strategic Approach to Application Modernisation

With the rapid pace of change set to continue through the second half of 2021, many CIOs are asking whether achieving their organisational goals alongside their ongoing digital transformation projects is realistic. To do this effectively, CIOs need to establish an application-first infrastructure to enable them to be digitally agile. But this requires business change, and with change comes hesitation and discomfort from the board. As a result, an extra layer of convincing management to buy into the proposed change comes into play. As a CIO, not only must you ensure you are setting out a robust vision for IT, you must also present and win approval for modernisations with the board. Join this boardroom and leave with practical takeaways on how to:

  • Set out the strategy for modernising legacy applications to better deal with business demands
  • Implement a continuous modernisation program to ensure all applications are kept current for technology and business purposes
  • Identify the key metrics to share with the wider business and ensure the strategy meets the changing business needs
