The Legacy Infrastructure is Dead, Long Live the Legacy Infrastructure

DESCRIPTION: Interfacing with legacy IT systems is a fact of life for most Government entities — you don’t always have the time, resources, or authority to rip everything up and start from scratch. How, then, do you design and implement systems using modern languages and design principles while weighed down by decades of acquired habit and vintage infrastructure? We don’t have all the answers to this challenging question, but we need to have the conversation. Join the City of Boston and Nuna, a health-tech startup working with Medicare and Medicaid, in a panel discussion on technical, organizational, and cultural approaches to solving these challenges. We’ll start with a few brief case studies of ways to successfully work alongside or evolve away from legacy systems, and will then open up the discussion to broader themes.    

WHO SHOULD ATTEND: Software engineers, project/product managers, procurement, anyone in strategy or anyone else responsible for technical delivery when legacy tech is involved.
