Panel & Networking: How Technology Can Lead The Way For Digital Transformation

As each of our clients weathers unique challenges, “digital transformation” comes to mind as something that exists in different stages. Some organizations are long-since transformed by technology, while others shifted more recently toward work dominated by the distributed as well as the digital.

In building custom applications to automate workflows, streamline operations and leverage technical advantages through innovation, we harness the power of digital transformation. We’re helping many organizations maintain existing momentum to position themselves for positive upswings, and others to recover from economic downturns, overcome turbulence in operations, or head off uncertainty about technical resources.

Digital transformation supports organizational transformation. And it can also lead this transition.

What’s a dev (team) to do?


Panel & Networking Event: How Technology Can Lead The Way For Digital Transformation

Not long ago, Eric Siegfried from (a leader in the dev talent world, and a respected peer in the consulting biz) reached out to ask if we wanted to talk about Digital Transformation at a networking event for developers and entrepreneurs. “Tell your stories” on this topic, he requested. On behalf of Beezwax, I have stories to share of our work during Covid, recent web development projects driven by UX, partnering with Claris, an Apple company on apps for education, , and building future dev communities through hackathons, datathons and conference events. “Get into the details for developers”, was the other ask. So, along with other panelists, we’ll dig a little deeper into Agile, DevOps, processes for coordinating design-driven innovation and data-driven integration, and the-business-of-engineering topics like “technical debt”.

The most exciting aspect for me is learning from the developer and tech entrepreneur community. Looking back at past gatherings of startups, agencies and top web developer talent, these events have always brought together diverse, dynamic audiences and presenters. So, I’m heading to San Francisco, and excited that live, in-person events are slowly coming back.


Here are more details about tonight’s event:

After a long Covid winter, Develop is back! This time, we’re discussing the how and why of future proofing your apps and resolving tech debt, while negotiating with the needs of UX design.
We’re looking at examples of ACTUAL digital transformation, with tech leading the way to support products to deliver value. As always, we’re here to learn, discuss opportunities, and connect.
