Under its newly defined IT strategy, G6 is modernizing legacy applications and creating an agile IT platform that combines cloud, AWS microservices, and DevOps automation to rapidly respond and adapt to the changing needs of customers, business and the market.

At CIO Perspectives, Mr. Burgess will share lessons learned from the company’s digital transformation to date and how agile IT serves as a strategic lever to transform the business.  As a result of the new agile strategy, G6 is creating a people-centered culture that operates in rapid learning and fast decision cycles, enabled by cloud technology, and guided by common purpose to create value for customers, employees, business stakeholders, and the industry at large.

Joining Mr. Burgess is Flux7 CEO, Dr. Suleman, who will share a practical and actionable framework for defining an IT platform that scales.
