Summary

An event for modernizing enterprises

As some of the technologies that got us this far leave the stage, enterprises are now grappling with their next best steps. What do we need from our commerce solutions? Where do we go now?  How can we flex and grow faster? What would a modern digital commerce ecosystem look like?

Easy questions to answer, right?

As business and IT expectations and demands change, the technology landscape is going through a seismic shift. A new league of modern, flexible, and scalable software —coupled with a new approach to building solutions is making waves under the umbrella term of “MACH” (which stands for microservices, API-first, cloud-native, and headless). This is a new approach to IT and development, leading the charge for ambitious businesses to modernize faster and with greater levels of control than ever before.

At our private networking event in November, together with other technology leaders, we debated the challenges of true modernization, obstacles, and more importantly—the opportunities that are unfolding. We didn’t sugar-coat the conversation.
