Compare your business systems today with the ones you used five years ago. Did you upgrade at the right time? Do you find yourself still hampered by outdated technology in certain arenas? In this lesson, ExecSense examines how you as Technology Leader can make the right technology choices in 2016. Take the 60 minutes to view this webcast to learn about the latest technology platforms and business systems newly available in 2016, and how to objectively determine if your company’s current platforms need an update.

This lesson is led by an expert on this topic, Mike Meikle (CEO – secureHIM), and focuses on creating a scoring and management framework for handling your platform choices and what techniques are most effective when making the case for a technology update with your board.
