Lessons learned from modernizing legacy applications
Hosted on March 23, 2022 EDT
Our panel of Thinkers discussed the lessons they've learned while improving digital tools for large organizations.
About this Panel-style Webinar
Our expectations about an app’s capabilities and ease of use are higher than ever before. And businesses are becoming increasingly defined by the digital experience they offer customers. Large organizations face the unique challenge of meeting these market demands while many customers and employees are already using and relying on their existing tools. What’s the best way for company leaders and UX teams to traverse these waters and successfully launch an application that meets today’s standards?
A group of Think Company designers and technologists who have done this work with enterprise organizations and reached a successful outcome together talked through the lessons we’ve learned modernizing legacy apps and how you can apply the same learnings to your own work.
