Ultimus Webinar: Successful Digital Transformation – Begin with the End in Mind

Webinar Summary:

Digital Transformation is today’s imperative and enterprises are accelerating efforts to digitize every aspect of their business to realize it. But ever-faster delivery of individual business software applications is not transformative. You need to begin with the end in mind!

In this webinar, Neil Ward-Dutton, co-founder and Research Director of MWD Advisors, describes the challenges of Digital Transformation as well as the goals, thinking, and technologies that define, guide, and facilitate lasting strategic advantage in the digital age.

Carsten Neumann, Ultimus’ Senior Vice President – Enterprise Solutions, explains how Ultimus applied modern product line engineering and automated manufacturing principles to create Composed Process Solutions – a Digital Automation Platform designed specifically to meet the challenge of digital transformation: creating a seamless, flexible, end-to-end digital enterprise.

Eric Ritchie, a Partner and co-founder of PROceed BPM, demonstrates how this new paradigm for software development can be applied to deliver and deploy software with unmatched speed, quality, cost, and business value. 

Key Takeaways:

  • DT’s new mindset – engineering software families instead of individual applications
  • Replace today’s Professional Services implementation time, cost, and effort with technology
  • Software families that inherently work together are a must for customer-obsessed organizations
