• Creating an agile enterprise through app modernization—how are we transforming our business to accommodate marketplace changes and shifting customer, partner, and colleague demand?
• Building on an infrastructure primed for transformation—how did we enable an infrastructure to support our journey of becoming a true SaaS company?

In addition to our strides toward digital transformation, we continue our commitment to investing in employees, evolving the customer experience, increasing environmental sustainability, and providing value to shareholders.
