BOSTON, May 25, 2017 – Executives from MEGA International and one of its distinguished Fortune 50 customers will speak about digital business at the Gartner Enterprise Architecture & Technology Innovation Summit, May 31 and June 1 in Orlando.
One talk, How We Created a Digital Business Platform, will provide insight into a strategic initiative at one of the leading health benefits companies in the US, serving nearly 50 million people nationwide.
The ability to mix and match best-of-breed business capabilities became necessary for the insurer due to shorter change cycles and the transformational forces of the Affordable Care Act. Its EA team turned vision into action to build a brand-new business platform in record time by applying digital-first principles. The company relied on MEGA’s HOPEX business transformation solutions for its ongoing programs.
Kevin Costa, business transformation expert at MEGA, will also speak at the conference. Killing Zombie Applications that Suck the Life from Your Business is Costa’s exploration of how companies address the problem of resource-intensive applications.
“These applications may be alive in terms of cost, but are dead in terms of value,” noted Costa. “You’ve got hundreds of applications that cost too much, legacy systems that slow you down and non-standard or aging technologies in dire need of remediation. But, it’s not hard for companies to develop a winning vision and plan to solve these challenges.”
