Lean. Agile. Responsive. These are all the buzzwords of digital transformation (DT)–the watchword for converting yesterday’s brick-and-mortar companies to operate at the speed of so-called “Digital Native Organizations” (or DiNOs). Companies like Amazon, Google, Spotify, and eBay have been transforming how business is conducted in the retail, advertising, and content delivery worlds–and now it’s Wall Street’s turn. But can heavily regulated companies subject to strong reliance requirements behave like startups? The answer, surprisingly, is “yes”. This seminar showcases the companies, technologies, and processes that enable Wall St. firms to join the Digital Transformation revolution, and begin conducting business at startup speed.

Panel Focus: From Lean Enterprise to Digital Transformation: A Roadmap

You’ve mastered the fundamentals of DevOps and Agile. You’ve implemented the tools, reorganized your teams, and shifted your development organization to a lean enterprise that delivers business value at startup speed.

What’s next? Learn from your peers how best to digitally transform your enterprise. This panel session focuses on the must-have technologies, tried-and-true best practices, and critical insight required to enable digital transformation in a financial services environment. You’ll come away from this session with an actionable roadmap for making a digital transformation happen in your own organization.
