DEPT® Tech Day

Boost your growth with a tech-driven organisation

Companies are in the middle of their transformation to become a digital-first business. The role of technology, IT and development teams is becoming crucial to meet the continuously changing customer expectations. During DEPT® Tech Day, we will talk to leading digital companies about what it takes to create a developer-first culture and organisation.

Organisations often fail to meet the needs of increasingly important digital teams. That is why it is essential to create a culture and organisation in which developers, engineers and other digital experts feel at home and are given the space to do their work well. DEPT® Tech Day is the event for digital and IT leaders who want to take the next step in connecting with the business and the rapidly growing role of their people in it.

Four key takeaways:
– How to become a tech driven organisation
– Creating a developer-first culture
– Attracting and retaining the right tech talent
– The impact, challenges and opportunities during the shift of becoming a tech focused organisation
