Build or Buy? The Solution to Upgrading Technology

Presented by the Chicagoland Chamber Technology Council

Since the beginning of the pandemic, the digital transformation has accelerated at an unprecedented rate, forcing businesses to identify and adopt new technologies in order to meet consumer demand. Concurrently, the talent required to implement these technologies has become scarce, making it increasingly difficult to build custom applications in-house. 

The Chamber’s featured experts will discuss the merits of building technology versus buying technology and the challenges posed in developing scalable, cost-efficient business solution.

Featured Speaker:

Marina Aronchik

Partner- Technology Transactions, Mayer Brown

Anne Doligale

Senior Vice President, Signature Bank
