DLA Piper Digital Evolution Tech and Sourcing Webinar Series
New technologies are helping businesses expand and grow, bringing with them a host of associated legal risks and commercial impacts. To help you navigate these rapidly evolving issues, our Global Tech and Sourcing team have created a series of concise training webinars looking at the digital evolution of tech and sourcing.
To open the series, speakers Chloe Forster, Vinny Sanchez and Paul Allen consider what we mean by “digital evolution” and what the key features of a digitally evolved business might look like.
The sessions are focussed on the key themes derived from the Embracing Digital Evolution business report and present the groups view on the everyday issues businesses will face, as our increasing dependency on technology grows.
These training sessions will be opened to registered users.
