Application Innovation & Business Solutions Summit

9 – 10 September 2024 | London, U.K.

New Intelligence, New Value, New Skills

Welcome to the future of applications, where new user experiences, new capabilities and new platforms are constantly vying for your attention and investment. In a world where everyone is a builder, application and software engineering leaders must navigate new and challenging paths to deliver true business value.

To thrive in the face of constant disruption, you must maximize the value of existing application investments and optimize the impact of new software capabilities. The disruptive forces of AI and other emerging technologies are inspiring all stakeholders to dream big. This is driving new working practices and skills, as well as changing the expectations of customers, users and developers. To deliver new value, you must embrace these changes and enable them.

The opportunities for application innovation are nearly limitless — with strong leaders and technologists at the helm. Join 32+ World Events experts, 50+ vendors and 1700+ peers in London, UK on 9-10 September to navigate these opportunities and challenges head-on, and get practical advice and strategic insights on topics like generative AI, intelligent apps, low-code, platform engineering, attracting, developing and retaining great software engineering talent and more.
