"From legacy to new - the Anfield approach"

When you’re dealing with legacy software systems, defining an appropriate development roadmap - one that will support the continued success of your business - can prove challenging. How, for example, can you deliver new features and take advantage of emerging technologies, without jeopardising the success you’ve built up to date? 

In this session Box UK Principal Developer Ian Jenkins will answer this very question, explaining the innovative approach to legacy software development employed on the RS Components DesignSpark project.

Inspired by Ian's trip to watch his favourite football team, this approach minimised risk while maximising value and established the platform as a keystone of the global electronics retailer’s overarching digital transformation - making it a must-watch for anyone looking to overhaul their own legacy systems.
