    Software: The Future Of Your Business

    We are at an inflection point in the software development business. Software empowers your customers and drives brand success, and customer expectations raise the bar for everything you do in the digital realm. But the emerging tech stack is very different from what you have today and is architected in a different manner than what you're used to. This session will explore:

    • How mobile will change development habits for all corporate software, and how you can capitalize on this change.
    • How exposing more and more data will drive exponential innovation.
    • Why only those with flexible software strategies will survive this transformation.
