The Route to Rapid SAP Innpvation

 The Route to Rapid Innovation 

 Fuelling transformation through testing 

 08:40 - 10:30 BST 

Wednesday 29 July 2020 
 Virtual Event - Taking Place on Zoom 

Mass remote working, a major shift to online transactions, and disrupted supply chains mean improving business agility and speed of delivery is imperative.

IT leaders are under pressure to optimise and reduce costs, whilst responding to rapidly changing business priorities in response to COVID-19. At the same time, delivering best-in-class digital tools and experiences for employees and customers is critical, so where can optimisation boost innovation?

We explore the vital role of testing in digital transformation, assessing how cutting-edge, risk-based approaches and intelligent automation can accelerate innovation through rapid software development across the enterprise.
