It can feel easier to stick with the status quo but, in this session, we will reiterate the benefits of embracing the change, creating the best app stack for your firm and pinpoint how to get the ‘buzz’ back for new technologies.

This will include:
• The digital journey so far
• What is driving the need for digital technologies in the industry
