Avoiding the legacy trap: How to ensure your legacy decisions aren’t holding back your modernisation

Date: Wednesday, 12th August 2020
Time: 1pm – 2pm BST
Webinar platform: Zoom (live subtitles will be available)

Legacy decisions stop you from modernising your legacy technology. When a digital team is asked to replace some ageing tech, they often find their hands tied by a decade or more of decisions taken by other people with the best of intentions. This is especially true in the public sector, where the gap between policy makers and digital teams creates a minefield of edge cases.

While it might sound daunting, for legacy modernisation to be a success, digital and non-digital teams need to tackle this problem head-on, or they risk building services that become legacy before they launch. Left uncontrolled, these landscapes can lead to teams delivering new systems that are just as hard to change, and just as ineffective as the systems they replace.

In this webinar, we will discuss how to bridge this gap, and explore some of the easy to use tools that we have used to help teams replace legacy with sustainable services that truly serve the needs of their users.
