    Application managers must stay ahead of fast-moving technology trends

    Digital transformation requires application managers to support new business models and exploit new technology. Meanwhile, the existing portfolio remains an important foundation for application integration. It must be transformed into platforms that fit into the digital business technology platform architecture.

    Application Development and Platforms - Digital business demand leads to application development which leads to digital product development

    How we address top challenges of application leaders

    As product centricity moves deeper into organizations, the role of the application manager requires an evolution to meet the new delivery style. It’s critical to redefine what role the current application leader will play, where they will work and how they must lead in the age of digital transformation.
