SAN MATEO, Calif., March 15, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Celigo (, the leading integration Platform-as-a-Service (iPaaS) provider for both business and technical users, announced today that it will host a free virtual presentation featuring the CDC Foundation on March 17 titled "How the CDC Foundation Modernized and Automated Its Business Processes: A Digital Transformation Story".

"We are honored to host and support the CDC Foundation with this event," said Jan Arendtsz, Founder and CEO of Celigo. "The way the CDC Foundation modernized its legacy systems and automated its business processes with integration is a blueprint for any organization looking to undergo a similar initiative in this critical time for digital transformation."

Malcolm James, Senior Technology and Business Solutions Manager at the CDC Foundation, will discuss how the Foundation successfully approached and executed the automation of its legacy processes, just in time to manage the 5-fold increase in transactions it experienced as part of its COVID-19 pandemic response.

"Operational transformation is such a common and necessary goal these days that involves many critical decisions," said James. "I’m excited to share the story of our pathway because I understand what it’s like to have that desire for modernization while also feeling the weight of the challenges it presents."
