Set for success: The problem-solving power of technology

This event has now ended.
24 November 2022 16:30 - 20:00

Join Apadmi and our industry peers as we discuss developing market-leading digital products, and the traps to avoid to guarantee success.

About this event

The vast majority of digital transformation projects fail to meet their original objectives - as many as 87% by some estimates.

But why? After over a decade creating digital products that do deliver, our experts know better than most why success is far from certain:

  • Not knowing where to invest to get the maximum results.
  • Jumping into tech projects without demonstrating a clear ROI.
  • Relying on tech to address symptoms rather than root problems.
  • Not having a clear direction, structure and scope for the project.
  • Building products in a silo and not integrating with your wider tech stack.
  • So how do you avoid these pitfalls and set your project up for success?

With decades of experience building mobile apps, website development and system integrations, our teams have experienced first hand how to ensure success - and what traps you need to avoid.
