Look back at Applications in 2019

We provided the keys to help attendees' businesses thrive in an ever-evolving world, and new methodologies and approaches to accelerate the progress on their organization’s mission-critical priorities. We also provided a glimpse into the next decade of applications.

Thought-leading sessions included how to:

  • Build agile architectures to support DevOps, SOA, APIs, microservices, the Internet of Things (IoT) and cloud. Plan for continuous change.
  • Craft a cloud strategy to see you into the next decade of infrastructure as a service (IaaS), platform evolution, hybrid cloud and multicloud. 
  • Optimize existing applications and infrastructure. Leverage the latest strategies for ongoing legacy modernization. 
  • Understand where innovation is headed next. Develop the skills needed to continue digital transformation. 
  • Exceed user expectations. Deliver omnichannel customer experiences and effective digital workplace environments.
