Thursday 24th November 2022
Understanding how to make the most of the problem-solving power of technology is not straightforward.
We’re on a mission to get to the heart of where to focus, what the benefits are and how to avoid common pitfalls, such as:
Not knowing where to invest to get the maximum results
Jumping into projects without demonstrating a clear ROI
Relying on technology to address symptoms rather than root problems
Not having a clear direction, structure and scope for the project
Building products in a silo and not integrating with your wider tech stack
With a panel of experts from the public sector, brands, retailers and innovators, join us on Thursday 24th November to discuss how mobile, web and platform technology is influencing investment and growth.
