Topics of discussion:

  • What are the most difficult issues to deal with when managing a newish platform compared to one that is established and has a lot of paying customers? 
  • What are the right reasons to switch to a new platform and when it is better to invest in the existing solution? How to avoid unnecessary/harmful changes? 
  • How can we avoid building a platform missing its targets and that is too disconnected with actual end-customer needs?
  • When working with a platform, how can you ensure that the product is scalable and not optimised for the needs of one customer at different stages of the product lifecycle?
