FIRESIDE CHAT

Digital Transformation in the Face of Complexity

Fireside Chat with U of Tennessee, GatherContent, & Netlify

About this event

Higher Education is one of the most widely distributed, complex, and often political industries when it comes to digital. 

On top of this, it is one of the most prone industries to deal with outdated and poorly maintained infrastructure - with rigid procurement processes that often slow down change. If that wasn’t challenging enough, research suggests that Higher Education is the industry that produces and maintains the largest amount of digital content on the planet with the average university maintaining over 100k web pages.

And we didn’t even mention the pandemic. 

Whether you work in Higher Ed or not, if you are thinking about digital transformation then you’ll want to hear this success story.

Join this engaging fireside chat on September 14th with Netlify, GatherContent, and the University of Tennessee to learn:

  • How the University of Tennessee made huge strides in transforming their digital presence
  • Specifically, their approach to modernizing their fleet of over 300 WordPress websites, how they moved to a headless architecture and implemented an organization-wide design system
  • How you can optimize your content operations workflow
  • More about the wider trends of digital transformation within digital content that have been emerging in the face of ever increasing complexity and demand
