Today’s interview is with Don Schuerman, the CTO and Vice President of Product Marketing at Pega. Don joins me today to talk about resiliency, focus, reducing complexity, how tech can help, what lessons he has learned from the pandemic, the upcoming Pegaworld (www.pegaworld.com) and who he is most looking forward to hearing speak.
