Executive Dinner Series:  Insurance Industry Challenge - Managing Legacy Applications in Today's Agile Environment
Seminar | Thursday, January 15, 2015
Hartford, Connecticut - United States

As insurance IT executives, we struggle to explain the business case for modernization. Yet, we know that at some point we'll no longer be able to modify some of our old claims administration systems at the speed required by the business. Even if we get a small modernization budget, it's sometimes hard to decide where to begin.

Join Saad Ayub, a recent CIO at The Hartford, along with Keith Schloss, a CIO at ACE Group and other insurance IT executives in an exclusive executive conversation about moving more quickly with a lot of legacy applications. We will also be joined by Bill Martorelli, a Forrester analyst interested in this topic. This dinner discussion will focus on identifying the technical debt in your systems, prioritizing the key areas and processes for improvement and selling targeted technical debt reduction to business stakeholders.
