Live Discussion

7. TBM-for-DIGITAL: Investing Shared Platforms & Services to Accelerate Digital

In this live discussion, participants will discuss how they are moving to productized services to assist digital product teams to develop, integrate, run, and maintain capabilities quickly, securely, and cost-effectively. These services may provide compute infrastructure, development environments, digital platforms, foundation platforms, and other capabilities that product teams need. In small roundtables, attendees will explore how to fund those shared services, how to allocate their costs, and how to address other common barriers to shared platform adoption. Be sure to secure your seat for the virtual live discussion when you register for TBM Conference 2021. There will be discussions hosted on October 11 and 12.
