4:40 PM Closing Keynote: Maintaining Business Momentum With Legacy Systems While Adopting More Potent Digital Solutions

It is a misconception that legacy systems and older facilities are a barrier to digital transformation. In fact, most World Economic Forum lighthouses were created by transforming existing “brownfield” operations.  In this powerhouse finale to our conference, join Mike who will share:   

•How to evaluate what legacy equipment and systems you should consider keeping or discarding during your digital transformation
•The pros and cons of keeping legacy systems in terms of business momentum, and the best method of adopting and layering on new innovative solutions
•Best practices for vetting new digital solutions that will work with your current legacy system to avoid costly compatibility errors
