IT organizations today balance the demands of digital transformation and innovation against core operational excellence. This creates "technical debt": the ongoing cost of leaving things undone in the race to be agile and innovative. While agility and speed are important, operational capabilities must follow later. Technical debt, like financial debt, must eventually be paid - unpaid technical debt results in defects, workarounds, lost opportunities, and fragile systems that restrict the business' ability to respond. Technical debt requires a comprehensive approach to digital transformation leadership that complements innovation; failing to anticipate the follow-on requirements for integrating and incorporating new technologies leads to costs and delays as innovations mature.

Join us to learn how to keep technical debt from bankrupting your digital transformation.

Key takeaways include:

  • Hear about the causes, costs and consequences of technical debt

  • Learn an approach to technical debt management
  • Get a framework for balancing risk, cost, and opportunity
