Synopsis and overview of the session
In a rapidly evolving digital environment, businesses have a myriad of ways to connect and interact with customers. From mobile to conversational and interactive apps, enterprises are increasingly relying on technology that can meet consumers where they are. In order to build these apps, businesses need a low-code application development platform for professional developers that delivers multi-experience apps out of the box. The game-changer is the “build once and deploy across multiple touches” approach.
Focus Network in partnership with HCL Software is hosting an exclusive virtual roundtable event, bringing leading digital transformation executives to discuss the topic of Why You Need A Smart Multiexperience Digital Strategy. Now., with a handful of senior executives in an informal, roundtable lunch event setting from which you will emerge with new strategies and solutions you can immediately put to work.
