IRIS Software’s Development Manager paves the way for Legacy Systems at DevBoss | Register Here

Corecom Consulting is pleased to announce Keith Williams, Development Manager at IRIS Software, as the keynote speaker at DevBoss on Thursday 23rd May 2019 from 6.00 – 8.30pm in central Leeds.

His presentation titled ‘Transforming Legacy Applications’ is set to gather plenty of interest from experienced leaders in Software Development. Keith said:

“Technology leaders should be taking legacy systems and upgrading them for improvement, to introduce a more attractive way to work. The questions are however, do they gradually introduce change or adopt a more ‘big bang’ approach?

“By exploring the cultural factors attendees will be able to introduce the concept of change and innovation with more risk averse organisations. Development Managers will come away knowing how to handle the risk of introducing change, by effectively implementing methods to introduce change safely.”


Keith has built and led successful software products and teams in both small and global enterprises, including: City of York Council, Eurosafe UK and Sun Branding Solutions.

His most recent work involved replacing an ASP/VB6 application with a 6-month deployment timeline with a greenfield Azure PaaS solution and a continuous delivery process allowing his team at Sun Branding Solutions to perform hourly deployments.

Along with the technological changes, he has also worked with product and business teams to implement real agile practices, rebuilding development teams to integrate development, QA and UX disciplines.
