Also known as ‘hybrid integration,’ the platform enables large organizations to eliminate risk and failure often associated with digital transformation projects by automating and standardizing the process of creating digital services.

    “North America is strategically important to OpenLegacy, and we’re extremely pleased to have Shane on-board. His proven sales expertise, industry insights and impressive track-record align perfectly with our aggressive growth forecasts,” says Romi Stein, OpenLegacy CEO. “Shane also is our first of several global General Managers with complete regional accountability to help us manage rapid growth.”
