Digital Transformation Obstacles and Lessons Learned from Gartner Research

On Tuesday, April 28th, at 11am EDT we will host a live webinar with Gartner on one of today’s hottest topics- Digital Transformation.
Digital Transformation has been disrupting industries for some time and, while some companies have successfully managed digital transformations other have not. This event will explore the barriers to digital transformation many organizations are facing due to poor application management practices. Topics covered will include: excessive complexity, the challenges IT leaders face in improving application health and what you can do to reverse the situation. Also to be discussed during the webinar are the warning signs of potential failure for a digital transformation and how leaders and their companies should prepare for digital transformations in their organization to increase the chances of success.

Digital Transformation Keeps Software Complexity from Becoming a CIO’s Legacy

They say “if something works, don’t fix it.” This old adage may be the reason behind why some organizations hold onto legacy systems longer than they should, but it is also the reason why these same organizations struggle with software complexity. In fact, according to the GAO, Uncle Sam spends 80 percent of its $86.4 billion IT budget on legacy systems.
Some organizations choose not to struggle, though. Take for example the story of Pennsylvania-based underwriter NSM Insurance Group. It was reported recently on SearchCIO.com that NSM last year purchased a company that still had a COBOL-based back-office system from the 1990’s.
