A main objective of successful companies today is to improve the experience of their customers and become more competitive by taking advantage of modern technologies. This leads to corporate-wide Digital Transformation initiatives where IT managers play a key role in managing risks and costs associated with the transformation.

Yet, software complexity has emerged as one of the most significant barriers to transformation success. Software complexity, combined with the need to reduce time to market, can often increase the risk and cost attached to software development and maintenance, especially those related to security, robustness, efficiency and maintainability.

Jaime García Cantero, IT Analyst, opened the session illustrating the context of Digital Transformation in which organizations are currently immersed.
