App Transformers: Application Modernization is great, but what about my data?!? - April 20 at 12:30 ET

"In previous episodes, we’ve explored  modernization of our applications,  the technological issues to remediate, lots of tools to help accelerate the modernization, and  the importance of organizational structure and processes.  In this episode, we’ll be joined by Roland Barcia, and we’ll address the role of data in modernization.  Sometimes, the data drives the modernization. Sometimes, the modernization pulls the data with it. Join us to explore just what there is to do about data."
