If you are reading this, then you can probably relate to what Center for Digital Government (CDG) research recently found: Forty-two percent of agencies spend more than a quarter of their IT budgets maintaining legacy systems. On this hour-long webcast, we are going to tell you how your agency can break this budget cycle and easily, iteratively and cost-effectively modernize systems and applications that are no longer meeting your needs. Join us on June 12th at 11am Pacific/2pm Eastern where leaders from CDG and OutSystems will discuss:

• The roles of low-code and microservices in taking an agile approach to legacy modernization
• How to overcome common modernization challenges, like a shortage of developers and the need to rip and replace systems
• Highlights and trends from the CDG research survey on legacy modernization
