Opening Keynote: How to Become a DX Hero
Four Essentials To Become DX Hero Status Now

Data center, on-premise, public-cloud, private-cloud, multi-cloud, hybrid-cloud, IoT, AI, edge, SaaS, PaaS… it’s an availability, security, performance and integration nightmare even for the best of the best IT experts.

Organizations realize the tremendous benefits of everything the digital transformation has to offer. Cloud adoption rates are increasing significantly, and IT budgets are morphing to follow suit. But distributing applications and infrastructure around increases risk, introduces complexity and challenges availability at every turn.

To embrace DX and to come out on top, there are four underlying principles that should guide you. Understanding these four essentials along with their relevance and impact will elevate you to DX Hero status now. Jonathan will provide a high-level overview of these principles and how some of his organization’s clients have embraced them with resounding success.

Darktrace AI General Session
The Enterprise Immune System

The Enterprise Immune System is the world’s most advanced machine learning technology for cyber defense. Inspired by the self-learning intelligence of the human immune system, this new class of technology has enabled a fundamental shift in the way organizations defend themselves, amid a new era of sophisticated and pervasive cyber-threats.

The human immune system is incredibly complex and continually adapts to new forms of threats, such as viral DNA that constantly mutates. It works by learning about what is normal for the body, identifying and neutralizing outliers that do not fit that evolving pattern of normality.

Darktrace applies the same logic to enterprise and industrial environments. Powered by machine learning and AI algorithms, Enterprise Immune System technology iteratively learns a unique ‘pattern of life’ (‘self’) for every device and user on a network, and correlates these insights in order to spot emerging threats that would otherwise go unnoticed.

Like the human immune system, the Enterprise Immune System does not require previous experience of a threat or pattern of activity in order to understand that it is potentially threatening. It works automatically, without prior knowledge or signatures, detecting and fighting back against subtle, stealthy attacks inside the network — in real time.

Six Kubernetes Pain Points and How Cloud Can Solve Them

With more than 30 Kubernetes solutions in the marketplace, it's tempting to think Kubernetes and the vendor ecosystem has solved the problem of operationalizing containers at scale or of automatically managing the elasticity of the underlying infrastructure that these solutions need to be truly scalable. Far from it. There are at least six major pain points that companies experience when they try to deploy and run Kubernetes in their complex environments. In this presentation, the speaker will detail these pain points and explain how cloud can address them.

IoT Data: From the Edge to the Cloud and Back

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository. Ochandarena discusses a whole new way to think about your next-gen applications and how to address the challenges of building applications that harness all data types and sources.

Graph Databases and Machine Learning: Finding a Happy Marriage
Graph Databases and Machine Learning: Finding a Happy Marriage

Machine learning provides predictive models which a business can apply in countless ways to better understand its customers and operations.

Since machine learning was first developed with flat, tabular data in mind, it is still not widely understood: when does it make sense to use graph databases and machine learning in combination?

This talk tackles the question from two ends: classifying predictive analytics methods and assessing graph database attributes. It also examines the ongoing lifecycle for machine learning in production.  From this analysis it builds a framework for seeing where machine learning on a graph can be advantageous.'

Addressing Critical Shortcomings of ETL Tools for Better Data Analytics
Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.

Extract, transform and load (ETL) tools like AWC Glue bring much needed functionality. This tool enables new approaches to pulling, processing and pushing data from source to target, and introduces concepts such as performing data transformation tasks using SparkSQL scripts in Apache spark environment. However, there are shortcomings with AWS Glue, leading to a number of challenges and questions:

Where are the necessary coding techniques when it comes to dealing with specific data types and many such technical aspects of traditional ETL tools?

How can data analysts rely on the Glue-Dynamic frame concept for some of the key design aspects when it comes to incremental loads design and data conversion process?

How can accurate reporting be achieved when the data processing step truncates decimals points, creating huge data discrepancies?

At Infostretch, we believe these challenges can be handled by utilizing specific database level functions. In this session, we will showcase real-life experience with such deal-breaking scenarios, and demonstrate how to mitigate these issues without jeopardizing reporting accuracy, compromising on quality, or endlessly waiting for new releases.

Attendees will learn how to overcome the critical shortcomings of the AWS Glue ETL tool to achieve success:

How to use specific database level functions without jeopardizing quality

Address issue of truncating decimals to produce accurate reports

Ensure source system KPIs match up with target system KPIs for complete business insights.

Adding “Compute” to “Sharing Economy” using Ad-hoc Networking to Build Device-Cloud
Adding “Compute” to “Sharing Economy” using Ad-hoc Networking to Build Device-Cloud

The hierarchical architecture that distributes "compute" within the network especially at the edge can enable new services by harnessing emerging technologies. But Edge-Computing comes at increased cost that needs to be managed and potentially augmented by creative architecture solutions as there will always be the need to catch up with the capacity demands.

Processing power in smartphones has been enhanced year over year and there is increasingly spare compute capacity that can be potentially pooled. Companies have successfully been able to harness e.g. the excess capacity of privately owned vehicles and homes and turned into a meaningful business. This concept can be leveraged further to harness the spare compute capacity of smartphones that can be orchestrated by MEC to provide cloud service at the edge.
I propose a "smart ad-hoc networking" approach to build “device-cloud” that opens door for new opportunities to monetize. This cooperative networking approach will be augmented with a proactive and predictive security framework.

The Power of Immutable Infrastructure
Avoiding Infrastructure At Rest - The Power of Immutable Infrastructure

The benefits of automated cloud deployments for speed, reliability and security are undeniable.  The cornerstone of this approach, immutable deployment, promotes the idea of continuously rolling safe, stable images instead of trying to keep up with managing a fixed pool of virtual or physical machines.
In this talk, we’ll explore the immutable infrastructure pattern and how to use continuous deployment and continuous integration (CI/CD) process to build and manage server images for any platform.  Then we’ll show how automate deploying these images quickly and reliability with open DevOps tools like Terraform and Digital Rebar.  Not only is this approach fast, it’s also more secure and robust for operators.

If you are running infrastructure, this talk will change how you think about your job in profound ways.

Cloud Monitoring and Cost Management
To Really Work for Enterprises, MultiCloud Adoption Requires Far Better and Inclusive Cloud Monitoring and Cost Management … But How?

Moderator Dana Gardner, Principal Analyst at Interarbor Solutions, brings together a panel of experts to discuss performance management and cost monitoring in a multi-cloud world.

Overwhelmingly, even as enterprises have adopted cloud computing and are expanding to multi-cloud computing, IT leaders remain concerned about how to monitor, manage and control costs across hybrid and multi-cloud deployments. It's clear that traditional IT monitoring and management approaches, designed after all for on-premises data centers, are falling short in this new hybrid and dynamic environment.

Enterprise IT leaders tasked with management of apps, data and business processes amid this new level of complexity have been used to being able to gain logs- and agents-based data sets and generate analysis on IT assets that they control, that they own, and that they can impose their will over.

Yet, seemingly overnight, the vast majority of companies have ceded control of their public cloud assets to the cloud providers. The still have management insights into their on-premises, systems, but in many ways, the ability to manage in a fully hybrid fashion has been overtaken by the actual hybrid deployments models.

The cart is in front of the horse. IT leaders have hybrid computing - but not commensurate hybrid management and monitoring. They can't assure security nor compliance. They can not determine true and comparative costs - never mind optimize for efficiency across the hybrid IT and multi-cloud spectrum.

Just like server virtualization a decade ago proved a great idea that was soon limited by sprawl and an inability to measure, manage and optimize Virtual Machines - hybrid cloud and multi-cloud deployments run the risk of losing the performance and productivity race if the total hybrid and multicloud management equation is not solved.

The panel will examine these challenges and explore new ways that true multi-cloud management and monitoring will evolve. Automation - in synergy with big data analytics - is the key to effective and on-going multi-cloud management and optimization. Great strides are being made in big data analysis of such vast data sets as IT infrastructure logs from a variety of sources - including from across a hybrid IT continuum.

Many IT industry analysts are now envisioning how automated artificial intelligence (AI)-enabled "bots" leveraging IT systems and cloud performance data can begin deliver more value to IT operations management and optimization. Whether you call it BotOps or AIOps, the idea is the same: The rapid, concurrent use of multiple data sources, data collection methods, and real-time top-line analytical technologies to make IT operations work the best at the least cost.

Similar in concept to self-driving cars, wouldn't you like to see self-driving IT operations? It may, in fact, be the only way to manage the complexity and speed of true multi-cloud management and costs optimization.

DevOps and Enterprise IoT
Enterprise IoT Has Created Smart Cities and a New Economy

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.

As a result, many firms employ new business models that place enormous importance on software-based innovations. They require not only skilled occupations, such as data analysts and DevOps professionals, with more technical skills, but also middle-level employees with more software and computing acumen. Both large and small firms operate differently.

These are the "green shoots" of a new economy. It is characterized by rapid software innovation, swift changes in infrastructure - not only virtualized data and compute resources, but also virtualized networks - and new analytic and predictive capabilities.

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Robert Cohen, an economist and senior fellow at the Economic Strategy Institute, will discuss how after this shift, the economy will require:

Technical acumen built in schools, through in-house training, or better university programs.
Industries that no longer bend metal or provide retail or sales opportunities. They will exploit continuous innovations in software and computing to offer autonomous capabilities and innovative connections to customers.
The Internet of Things will serve as the handmaiden for dramatic economic change.

Smart Cities Can't Exist Without Machine Learning
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by sharing information within the building and with outside city infrastructure via real time shared cloud capabilities.

SUSE CTO Brent Schroeder General Session
Traverse Seamlessly from Edge to Core to Cloud

Every organization is facing their own Digital Transformation as they attempt to stay ahead of the competition, or worse, just keep up. Each new opportunity, whether embracing machine learning, IoT, or a cloud migration, seems to bring new development, deployment, and management models. The results are more diverse and federated computing models than any time in our history.

Unfortunately, there is no single deployment model that solves all of your business goals. You need to maintain the flexibility to deploy in your data center, to multi-clouds, or push to the edge to meet business specific cost, agility or application requirements.

During this session, Brent Schroeder will discuss the evolving open source ecosystem focused on enabling and managing these diverse approaches. With an end goal of managing complexity and maximizing portability of your workloads with consistent, flexible solutions from the Edge to Core to Cloud, you can be ready for your future business needs today.

Enterprises are Failing at DevOps
The Reason Enterprises are Failing at DevOps: To Predict the Future, Look to the Past

Enterprises are universally struggling to understand where the new tools and methodologies of DevOps fit into their organizations, and are universally making the same mistakes. These mistakes are not unavoidable, and in fact, avoiding them gifts an organization with sustained competitive advantage, just like it did for Japanese Manufacturing Post WWII.

The fundamental mistake is believing that DevOps fits on top of the legacy management of people and things, the way we've always done things since the industrial revolution, and it does not.  DevOps is not an addition but a replacement:  A creeping revolution in the principles of how we run IT.     When you look at the History of American Manufacturing and the costly cycles of failure that preceded adaptation to modern practices, you see the present and the future of global IT. Those that could adapt survived. Those that could not died.

Learning history's lessons is an imperative for survival in a world where the most important skill is adapting to continually accelerating change.  In this session we'll cover the specific actions necessary to adopt the new philosophy and transform into next generation organizations instead of joining former giants like Blockbuster and Toys-R-Us in history's dustbin of cautionary tales.

You Can't Get the Rainbow Without the Cloud
Everyone wants the rainbow - reduced IT costs, scalability, continuity, flexibility, manageability, and innovation. But in order to get to that collaboration rainbow, you need the cloud! In this presentation, we'll cover three areas:

First - the rainbow of benefits from cloud collaboration. There are many different reasons why more and more companies and institutions are moving to the cloud.  Benefits include: cost savings (reducing on-prem infrastructure, reducing data center foot print, reducing IT support costs), enabling growth (ensuring a highly available, highly scalable infrastructure), increasing employee access & engagement (by having collaboration tools that are usable and available globally regardless of location there will be an increased connectedness amongst teams and individuals that will help increase both efficiency and productivity.)

Second - clearing away the storm clouds of concern around privacy, security, and compliance. While a move to the cloud may help provide some of the benefits described, it's important to understand what some of the key concerns and things to consider when moving to the cloud.  Those three areas are privacy (how to ensure your content and user data is protected and ensure users are only able to view the content to which they are entitled), security (how to prevent malicious attacks and other intrusions aimed to compromise the system or steal data), and compliance (making sure you adhere to the IT regulations set forth by your industry or local government).  

Third - the simple steps for getting to the cloud - starting with choosing a buying model that bridges the path, understanding gateway technologies, and creating user experiences that accelerate the shift. We will walk through a two lane road map that shows both the technical path and the business strategy path.  For the technical path we will discuss what needs to be in place architecturally to move to the cloud, what role hybrid integrations that bridge on-prem with the cloud can play, and what is the full breadth of collaboration capabilities available in the cloud. For the business strategy path, we will discuss how to prepare your users and ensure that areas such as adoption and absorption of these capabilities are being addressed.

Artificial Intelligence: The Good, the Bad, and the Practical
Artificial intelligence, machine learning, neural networks. We're in the midst of a wave of excitement around AI such as hasn't been seen for a few decades. But those previous periods of inflated expectations led to troughs of disappointment. This time is (mostly) different.

Applications of AI such as predictive analytics are already decreasing costs and improving reliability of industrial machinery. Pattern recognition can equal or exceed the ability of human experts in some domains. It's developing into an increasingly commercially important technology area. (Although it's also easy to look at wins in specific domains and generalize to an overly-optimistic view of AI writ large.)

In this session, Red Hat Technology Evangelist for Emerging Technology Gordon Haff will examine the AI landscape and identify those domains and approaches that have seen genuine advance and why. He'll also discuss some of the specific ways in which both organizations and individuals are getting up to speed with AI today.

Accelerate the Pace of Innovation Through Microservices
Accelerate the Pace of Innovation Through Microservices

Enterprises that want to take advantage of the Digital Economy are faced with the challenge of addressing the demands of multi speed IT and omni channel enablement. They are often burdened with applications that are complex, brittle monoliths. This is usually coupled with the need to remediate an existing services layer that is not well constructed with inadequate governance and management.

These enterprises need to face tremendous disruption as they get re-defined and re-invented to meet the demands of the Digital Economy. The use of a microservices approach exposed through APIs can be the solution these enterprises need to enable them to meet the increased business demands to quickly add new functionality.

Can a Freelancer Cost $500 an Hour?
A traditional way of software development efforts reimbursing is pay by the hour, which in case of remote programmers means $20-50 per hour, depening on the territory and the complexity of tech stack. However, what is the real amount of work programmers are delivering for that money? How many features and bug fixes they are usually capable of closing in a single working hour? Those metrics are rarely being calculated. In the presentation I will demonstrate the numbers obtained from over 30 projects completely in the last four years, all remotely. The numbers will show that the real amount of money we spend on coding is much higher than we expect.

Serverless Architecture Security Patterns
Serverless Architecture Security Patterns

Serveless Architectures brings the ability to independently scale, deploy and heal based on workloads and move away from monolithic designs. From the front-end, middle-ware and back-end layers, serverless workloads potentially have a larger security risk surface due to the many moving pieces. This talk will focus on key areas to consider for securing end to end, from dev to prod. We will discuss patterns for end to end TLS, session management, scaling to absorb attacks and mitigation techniques.

Continuous Delivery Is Better for Your Brain
Continuous Delivery Is Better for Your Brain

Continuous Delivery makes it possible to exploit findings of cognitive psychology and neuroscience to increase the productivity and happiness of our teams.

In his session at 22nd CloudEXPO | DXWorldEXPO, Daniel Jones, CTO of EngineerBetter, will answer:
  • How can we improve willpower and decrease technical debt?
  • Is the present bias real? How can we turn it to our advantage?
  • Can you increase a team's effective IQ?
  • How do DevOps & Product Teams increase empathy, and what impact does empathy have on productivity?
The OECD is puzzled over missing productivity. Are we failing to exploit the benefits of modern technology by running our software businesses and teams as if they're post-war factories, rather than continuously delivering?

Multi-Cloud Is Here, and You're Probably Already Doing It

They say multi-cloud is coming, but organizations are leveraging multiple clouds already. According to a study by 451 Research, only 21% of organizations were using a single cloud.

If you've found yourself unprepared for the barrage of cloud services introduced in your organization, you will need to change your approach to engaging with the business and engaging with vendors.

Look at technologies that are on the way and work with the internal players involved to have a plan in place when the inevitable happens and the business begins to look at how these things can help affect your bottom line.

Digital Transformation Amazon Style
Digital Transformation and Disruption, Amazon Style - What You Can Learn

Amazon is pursuing new markets and disrupting industries at an incredible pace. Almost every industry seems to be in its crosshairs. Companies and industries that once thought they were safe are now worried about being "Amazoned.". The new watch word should be "Be afraid. Be very afraid."

In his session at "10th Year Anniversary" event of CloudEXPO | DXWorldEXPO, Chris Kocher, a co-founder of Grey Heron, will address questions such as: What new areas is Amazon disrupting? How are they doing this? Where are they likely to go? What are they investing in? How are they competing? What does it mean for you and your business?

Using the Four Values Framework, he'll examine how Amazon is creating new value with vertical and horizontal integration, Value Creation of new categories, Value Migration into adjacent categories and markets, and why they excel with their Value Delivery System. Most importantly he'll conclude with implications for your business and how you can use the Four Values Framework to innovate in your business, create new value and grow revenues.

Cloud-Native: A New Ecosystem for Putting Containers into Production
Cloud-Native: A New Ecosystem for Putting Containers into Production

The standardization of container runtimes and images has sparked the creation of an almost overwhelming number of new open source projects that build on and otherwise work with these specifications.

Of course, there's Kubernetes, which orchestrates and manages collections of containers. It was one of the first and best-known examples of projects that make containers truly useful for production use. However, more recently, the container ecosystem has truly exploded. A service mesh like Istio addresses many of the challenges faced by developers and operators as monolithic applications transition towards a distributed microservice architecture. A tracing tool like Jaeger analyzes what's happening as a transaction moves through a distributed system. Monitoring software like Prometheus captures time-series events for real-time alerting and other uses. Grafeas and Kritis provide security policy attestation and enforcement. And there are many more.

In short, there's an entire new cloud-native ecosystem growing up around containers. Come to this talk by Red Hat technology evangelist Gordon Haff and learn all about it.

From Apollo 13 to Google SRE
From Apollo 13 to Google SRE: When DevOps met SRE

The complexity of managing and delivering the high level of reliability expected of web-based, cloud hosted systems today, and the expectation of Continuous Delivery of new features has led to the evolution of a totally new field of Service Reliability Engineering catered for such systems.
Google, who has been a pioneer in this field, calls it Site Reliability Engineering (SRE). While it would be more aptly named Service Reliability Engineering, the name has caught on. The seminal work documenting Google approach and practices is in the book by Google by the same name (commonly referred to as the ‘SRE book'), and has become the defacto standard on how to adopt SRE in an organization. This session will cover adopting SRE as a practice in organizations also adopting DevOps; address the challenges to adopting SRE faced by large traditional enterprises, and how to overcome them.

Are You Thinking About Big Data When Doing IoT? - You Should Be
When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the massive amount of information associated with these devices.

SD-WAN - Enteprise Networking for the Cloud Era
We are seeing a major migration of enterprises applications to the cloud. As cloud and business use of real time applications accelerate, legacy networks are no longer able to architecturally support cloud adoption and deliver the performance and security required by highly distributed enterprises. These outdated solutions have become more costly and complicated to implement, install, manage, and maintain.SD-WAN offers unlimited capabilities for accessing the benefits of the cloud and Internet. SD-WAN helps enterprises to take advantage of the exploding landscape of cloud applications and services, due to its unique capability to support all things cloud related.

The Rise of Digital Transformation
The Rise of and Challenges in Digital Transformation

For years the world's most security-focused and distributed organizations - banks, military/defense agencies, global enterprises - have sought to adopt cloud technologies that can reduce costs, future-proof against data growth, and improve user productivity.  The challenges of cloud transformation for these kinds of secure organizations have centered around data security, migration from legacy systems, and performance. In our presentation, we will discuss the notion that cloud computing, properly managed, is poised to bring about a digital transformation to enterprise IT.  We will discuss the trend, the technology and the timeline for adoption.

Making Cellular Communications Work for IoT
Making Cellular Communications Work for IoT

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people. They are not optimized for low- or battery-powered devices or for IoT applications with infrequently transmitted data.

Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. By using cell IoT modules, telecom service providers, mobile network operators can more quickly and easily develop and deploy IoT that use cell communications.

Making AI Non-Disruptive to Create Significantly Better Business Decisions
Disruption, Innovation, Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning, Leadership and Management hear these words all day every day... lofty goals but how do we make it real? Add to that, that simply put, people don't like change. But what if we could implement and utilize these enterprise tools in a fast and "Non-Disruptive" way, enabling us to glean insights about our business, identify and reduce exposure, risk and liability, and secure business continuity?

According to a report from IBM Marketing Cloud, "10 Key Marketing Trends", 90% of the data in the world today has been created in the last 24 months (since that was published in 2107, some are now suggesting that due to the accelerated velocity of data creation, that figure is actually 6 months); perhaps more importantly, it is estimated that 90% of that data is presumed to be unstructured data. This means that unstructured data makes up approximately 80% of the data available to business for decision support, yet businesses are omitting it from their repertoire. In short, businesses today are making mission critical business decisions based on only 20% of their available data; utilizing structured data is necessary, but by itself, insufficient.

Just imagine if there was a way to combine unstructured data with behavioral and structured data, thereby making 100% of enterprise data available to leaders and managers for mission-critical decision support in real time - and do it in a non-disruptive way? Now there is...

Cloud-Native, Microservices and Istio
What a Mesh! Navigating a Mesh of Microservices in the New Cloud-Native World with Istio

Meet Gary after their presentation at Deloitte Booth #100

92% of enterprises are using the public cloud today. As a result, simply being in the cloud is no longer enough to remain competitive. The benefit of reduced costs has normalized while the market forces are demanding more innovation at faster release cycles. Enter Cloud Native! Cloud Native enables a microservices driven architecture. The shift from monolithic to microservices yields a lot of benefits - but if not done right - can quickly outweigh the benefits. The effort required in monitoring, tracing, circuit breakers, routing, load balancing, etc. for thousands of microservices can become overwhelming. This talk will address strategies to run & manage microservices from 0 to 60 using Istio and other tools in a cloud native world.

Monetizing the Cloud
Monetizing the Cloud: Protection and Assertion of Intellectual Property

As the fourth industrial revolution continues to march forward, key questions remain related to the protection of software, cloud, AI, and automation intellectual property.

Recent developments in Supreme Court and lower court case law will be reviewed to explain the intricacies of what inventions are eligible for patent protection, how copyright law may be used to protect application programming interfaces (APIs), and the extent to which trademark and trade secret law may have expanded relevance to the cloud.

Best practices for intellectual property protection, licensing, and other topics will be presented, including checklists for engineers, product managers, sales/marketing, and other constituencies.
Drawing upon his pre-lawyer life as a product manager for cloud based products, the presenter will emphasize those topics believed to be most practically relevant.

Serverless Architecture
Serverless Architecture: Separating Logic From Plumbing and Paving the Way to Decentralized Execution

Technological progress can be expressed as layers of abstraction - higher layers are built on top of lower layers treating them as abstract black boxes with known interfaces. A serverless approach represents an inflection point that entirely separates the runtime layer from the underlying execution infrastructure. This paves a way for computations where the ultimate execution environment is not known in advance.

The Digital Customer Journey in Fintech and Beyond
The Digital Customer Journey in Fintech and Beyond

Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals. This is often especially true in financial services, where the legacy environment is many times unable to keep up with the rapidly shifting demands of the consumer. The constant pressure to provide complete, omnichannel delivery of customer-facing solutions to meet both regulatory and customer demands is putting enormous pressure on organizations of all sizes and in every line of business. Fintech is a constant battleground for this technology expanding trend and the lessons learned here can be applied anywhere. Digital transformation isn't going to go away and the need for greater understanding and skills around managing, guiding, and understanding the greater landscape of change is required for effective transformations.

This session will explore the core challenges that face every organization looking to transform and embrace digital experiences for their customers. From the shift in culture, to the need for new tech, to the technical debt load that will be incurred, we will cover all of them. Through the talk we will see ways in which others have mitigated and addressed them to facilitate complex and complete digital transformation, and ways in which they have failed and why. Participants will leave with a better vision for what constitutes digital transformation and how to embrace and deliver on this need in their own organizations. No technical skills are required, but a general technical understanding is assumed for participants.

The cloud has zero or little value for your business without your apps. Despite the hype around the cloud, adoption has been slow, and many IT departments seem to only use the cloud for those applications that aren't core to the business. Why is that?

Blockchain "Power Panel" with Ed Featherston
What Are the Challenges and Impediments to Blockchain Adoption?

Whenever a new technology hits the high points of hype, everyone starts talking about it like it will solve all their business problems. Blockchain is one of those technologies. According to Gartner’s  latest report on the hype cycle of emerging technologies, blockchain has just passed the peak of their hype cycle curve. If you read the news articles about it, one would think it has taken over the technology world.

No disruptive technology is without its challenges and potential impediments that frequently get lost in the hype. The panel will discuss their perspective on what they see as they key challenges and/or impediments to adoption, and how they see those issues could be resolved or mitigated.

Serverless Portability with Kubernetes
Dev How You Want. Run Where You Want: Application Portability with Kubernetes

Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure using the Kublr platform, and how Kubernetes objects, such as persistent volumes, ingress rules, and services, can be used to abstract from the infrastructure.

Kill the Middleman with a Blockchain
Kill the Middleman with a Blockchain

Blockchain is a new buzzword that promises to revolutionize the way we manage data. If the data is stored in a blockchain there is no need for a middleman - the distributed database is stored on multiple and there is no need to have a centralized server that will ensure that the transactions can be trusted.

The best way to understand how a blockchain works is to build one. During this presentation, we'll start with covering the basics (hash, nounce, block, smart contracts) and then we'll create a simple blockchain and a web client for it.

Disclaimer. This presentation is not about bitcoins, and it won't make you rich overnight.

Machine Data is Everywhere! Use it for Testing!

When applications are hosted on servers, they produce immense quantities of logging data. Quality engineers should verify that apps are producing log data that is existent, correct, consumable, and complete. Otherwise, apps in production are not easily monitored, have issues that are difficult to detect, and cannot be corrected quickly. Tom Chavez presents the four steps that quality engineers should include in every test plan for apps that produce log output or other machine data. Learn the steps so your team's apps not only function but also can be monitored and understood from their machine data when running in production.

Approaches to Machine Learning at the IoT Edge
Approaches to Machine Learning at the IoT Edge

With the mainstreaming of IoT, connected devices, and sensors, data is being generated at a phenomenal rate, particularly at the edge of the network. IDC’s FutureScape for IoT report found that by 2019, 40% of IoT data will be stored, processed, analyzed and acted upon at the edge of the network where it is created.

Why at the edge? Turns out that sensor data, in most cases, is perishable. Its value is realized within a narrow window after its creation. Further, analytics at the edge provides other benefits including:

• Reduced Cloud Costs
• Local Reaction
• Increased System Scalability
• Reduced Data to be Analyzed
• Bandwidth and Network Resiliency

This presentation examines current architectural approaches to analytics at the edge, including IoT devices, sensors, network communications with edge gateways, and cloud data centers.

There will be a demonstration of how sensors, controllers, gateways, and cloud computing platforms can be used to collect, process, and analyze data at the edge and in the cloud. The presentation concludes with a complete edge to cloud sensor network.

Deployment on AWS ECS and Fargate Utilizing CICD Pipeline
AWS ECS, like Kubernetes, is a container orchestration solution. It makes us easier to deploy, manage, and scale out container workloads. However, with ECS we are still responsible for the availability, capacity, and maintenance of the underlying infrastructure. AWS Fargate is a technology that we can use with ECS to run containers without having to manage servers or clusters of EC2 instances. With AWS Fargate, we no longer need to provision, configure, and scale clusters of virtual machines to run containers. This removes the need to choose server types, decide when to scale your clusters, or optimize cluster packing.
In this session we will do a live demo of a CICD pipeline which automate the build and deployment of microservice application onto AWS ECS and Fargate. The CICD pipeline will continuous deliver into various environments and various pipeline stages. The demo will utilize only AWS services including AWS CodeCommit, Codebuild, code pipeline, ECR, ECS and Fargate.

Accelerating CI/CD with Data Management On Premise and Cloud

Updating DevOps to the latest production data slows down your development cycle. Probably it is due to slow, inefficient conventional data management practices to copy data between different developer and test environment. This problem doesn't scale as teams are adopting faster software release cycles.

In this session, Dhiraj Sehgal in Product and Solution at Delphix, will talk about DevOps and cloud-focused strategies to update hundreds of developer and test copies with updates from a master database in minutes, saving hours or even days in each development cycle. He will also discuss how new practices in DataOps to manage data across multiple sources is making their life easier and helps  becoming invisible to developers for data provisioning.

Dynamic Infrastructure and The Cloud
Dynamic Infrastructure and The Cloud
Adventures in Keeping Your Application Running…at Scale

Keeping an application running at scale can be a daunting task. When do you need to add more capacity? Larger databases? Additional servers? These questions get harder as the complexity of your application grows. Microservice based architectures and cloud-based dynamic infrastructures are technologies that help you keep your application running with high availability, even during times of extreme scaling.

But real cloud success, at scale, requires much more than a basic lift-and-shift migration. It requires successfully navigating the world of the dynamic cloud. The dynamic cloud doesn’t just let you scale your applications, but it makes the process much faster and easier. It also allows your development teams to respond to changes faster, and implement these changes faster. Not everyone is ready for moving their applications to a fully dynamic cloud-based environment, but success in the cloud requires it.

In this talk, we’ll discuss how to keep your application running at scale, and how the dynamic cloud can help make this easier and better. We’ll also talk about what it takes to prepare your organization and your application in order to work in a dynamic cloud.

CIA Triad: Three Pillars for Securing the Internet of Things
CIA Triad: Three Pillars for Securing the Internet of Things

The transition from closed networks to enterprise IT networks to the public Internet is accelerating at an alarming pace—and justly raising alarms about security. As we become increasingly reliant on intelligent, interconnected devices in every aspect of our lives, how do we protect potentially billions of them from intrusions and interference that could compromise personal privacy or threaten public safety?

This discussion will highlight which means there are to protect IoT devices from unauthorized access, use, disclosure, disruption, modification, or even destruction. The base foundation for this kind of security is the CIA triad, composed of the following three pillars: confidentiality, integrity and availability. Confidentiality for preserving authorized restrictions on access and disclosure; integrity for guarding against improper information modification or destruction and ensuring information nonrepudiation and authenticity; and availability for ensuring timely and reliable access to the device and information.

This presentation will give an overview of these technologies, and cover implementation methods for all three.

Is Hybrid the Missing Link to Cloud?
Is Hybrid the Missing Link to Cloud?

Concerns about security, downtime and latency, budgets, and general unfamiliarity with cloud technologies continue to create hesitation for many organizations that truly need to be developing a cloud strategy. Hybrid cloud solutions are helping to elevate those concerns by enabling the combination or orchestration of two or more platforms, including on-premise infrastructure, private clouds and/or third-party, public cloud services. This gives organizations more comfort to begin their digital transformation without a complete overhaul of their existing infrastructure – serving as a sort of “missing link” for transition to cloud utilization.

While a hybrid cloud can ease that transition, designing and deploy that hybrid cloud still offers challenges for organizations concerned about lack of available cloud skillsets within their organization. Managed service providers offer a unique opportunity to fill those gaps and get organizations of all sizes on a hybrid cloud that meets their comfort level, while delivering enhanced benefits for cost, efficiency, agility, mobility, and elasticity.

Attend This Educational Session to Hear Such Topics As:

* Defining a Hybrid Cloud vs Pubic, Private, or Multi-Tenant cloud environments
* The advantage of a Hybrid approach for smooth cloud transitions
* Identifying potential pitfalls
* The benefits that a managed services provider (MSP) can deliver

Who Should Attend:

* SMBs who need personalized cloud assistance with hands-on support
* Large or enterprise customers evaluating ways to migrate to the cloud
* Large or enterprise customers who are currently using public cloud options, but need more secure options

Networking to Become the Cloud Enabler
Reimagine Networking to Become the Cloud Enabler

For enterprises to maintain business competitiveness in the digital economy, IT modernization is required. And cloud, with its on-demand, elastic and scalable principles has resoundingly been identified as the infrastructure model capable of supporting fast-changing business requirements that enterprises are challenged with, as a result of our increasingly connected world. In fact, Gartner states that by 2022, 28% of enterprise IT spending will have shifted to cloud. But enterprises still must determine which clouds are best suited for each application, in order to achieve IT governance, while accounting for complex data privacy requirements. It’s safe to say that enterprises know their future looks cloudy, and that this infrastructure will soon become a mix of multi, hybrid, and on-prem enterprise clouds.

Often, the network is overlooked as enterprises work toward infrastructure modernization, which can result in silos across both on-prem enterprise clouds and across public clouds. In this session, we will look at how enterprises can achieve true IT governance and management consistency across multiple cloud environments, breaking down cross-cloud silos that threaten the success of hybrid cloud. We will highlight why Fortune 500 organizations are leveraging a Cloud-First approach to networking, and making the network the foundation for their IT modernization initiatives. Additionally, we will highlight how a Cloud-First approach to networking offers meaningful CAPEX and OPEX savings. If you want to learn how the network can be an enabler to on-prem enterprise cloud or hybrid cloud, please join us as we show you what a reimagined network for the cloud looks like.

The Autonomous Nervous System: Your Organizational Survival Strategy
The Autonomous Nervous System:  Your Organizational Survival Strategy

"Adapt or die" becomes a more important maxim with every passing hour as the complexity and rate of change of the business environment accelerates exponentially.   In this new world, the metaphor between a complex self-directed organism like a human being and a self-directed entity like an corporation can provide deep insight into how to adapt natures scaling solutions to business and IT.  Coming from a legacy management paradigm based on static markets and unskilled workers, we are in desperate need to reconnect our IT-first business strategy with a model that unlocks the power of the modern knowledge worker to help propel our organizations forward. 

A human being would not survive long if we had to use our single available stream of consciousness to regulate our heartbeat, breathing, and endocrine systems, and likewise our organizations need to abandon yesterday's micromanaging styles and embrace autonomous systems.   In this session we'll explore how to develop an organizational autonomous nervous system by cheapening exploration of potentially disruptive new business models and drive feedback loops deeper into the organization where non-critical decisions can me made to spare the strategic brainpower for setting the direction of the overall mission of the organization.

The Move to a Modern Data Platform in the Cloud. Pitfalls to Avoid and Best Practices to Follow

The desire to stay competitive, deliver better customer experiences, and gain greater business agility is driving companies to move their data platforms to the cloud. Data analysts and scientists want modern, advanced analytics that are self-service. Companies who are well down the path to the cloud now have multiple projects involving various parts of the company but often without any notion of access, governance or security common across these projects. This quickly opens the door to risk and confusion.

This session will focus on critical data management practices that companies should adopt to achieve the desired benefits and avoid the pitfalls that could lead to complex expensive architectures and unattainable enterprise or regulatory governance requirements.

Economics of the Cloud
Economics of the Cloud: Don't Aim for the Sky on Everything

Public clouds dominate IT conversations but the next phase of cloud evolutions are “multi” hybrid cloud environments. The winners in the cloud services industry will be those organizations that understand how to leverage these technologies as complete service solutions for specific customer verticals. In turn, both business and IT actors throughout the enterprise will need to increase their engagement with multi-cloud deployments today while planning a technology strategy that will constitute a significant part of their IT budgets in the very near future. As IoT solutions are growing rapidly, as well as security challenges growing exponentially, without a doubt, the cloud world is about to change for the better. Again.

The audience will gain understanding of the following:

* Economics of the cloud: Should everything move?
* Workload selection: What goes where
* Analysis of how end-users approach various cloud offerings
* What Google, Azure, Amazon provide that is not otherwise available
* Agility of the cloud coupled with tools – enabling the impossible
* Maneuvering through regulatory and compliance challenges
* Decision-making: Security, compliance & consolidation
* Case studies

DevSecOps: The Open Source Way
DevSecOps: The Open Source Way

DevOps purists may chafe at the DevSecOps term given that security and other important practices are supposed to already be an integral part of routine DevOps workflows. But the reality is that security often gets more lip service than thoughtful and systematic integration into open source software sourcing, development pipelines, and operations processes--in spite of an increasing number of threats.

The extensive use of modular open source software from third-parties, distributed development teams, and rapid iterative releases require a commitment to security and the adoption of security approaches that are continuous, adaptive, and heavily automated.

In this session, Red Hat Technology Evangelist Gordon Haff look at successful practices that distributed and diverse teams use to iterate rapidly.  While still reacting quickly to threats and minimizing business risk. I'll discuss how a container platform can serve as the foundation for DevSecOps in your organization. I'll also consider the risk management associated with integrating components from a variety of sources--a consideration that open source software has had to deal with since the beginning. Finally, I'll show ways by which automation and repeatable trusted delivery of code can be built directly into a DevOps pipeline.

Practical IoT for Smart Cities, Manufacturing, and Advanced Analytics - Hand's On Workshop

This hands-on workshop is limited to 20 delegates, first come-first served - please note that it is a 3-hour session spread across 3 regular session blocks. When you sign up, sign up for all 3 blocks!

IoT is already in the mainstream as more and more investments are made into the platforms and technology. As this movement continues to expand and gain momentum it creates a massive wall of noise that can be difficult to sift through. This can lead to difficulty in starting your own projects, or understanding the basic functionality that underlies the IoT technologies that are all around us. Getting skilled up on the basics of circuits, sensors, and how those things work together and with software is the key to being able to understand, engineer, and support IoT solutions in your own environment.

In this workshop, participants will get hands-on guidance in building and coding their own prototype IoT project from scratch. Participants will walk away from this session with an understanding of the fundamental requirements for assembling a variety of circuits, sensors, platforms, and essential tools that will allow them to rapidly prototype IoT projects for their own scenarios. We will also talk about how to make the transition from prototype to production and the increased capabilities and requirements that transition provides. IoT is a critical technology across so many industries, that knowing these fundamentals will make you a better prepared and more effective IoT practitioner. 
No prior experience in development or hardware is required, and no hardware is needed; it will be provided for participants. Participants need to bring their own laptop for the hand's on portion of the workshop.

The Connected-Economy in the Digital Age - Models & Strategies

In the session, Ikuo Nakagawa, Co-Founder and Board Member at Transparent Cloud Computing Consortium, will introduce the big change toward the "connected-economy" in the digital age. He'll introduce and describe some leading-edge business cases from his original points of view, and discuss models & strategies in the connected-economy.

Nowadays, "digital innovation" is a big wave of business transformation based on digital technologies. IoT, Big Data, AI, FinTech and various leading-edge technologies are key components of such business drivers.

Digital innovation also brings big changes in the economic model. For example, transaction models in business scenes have been changed. Historically, we paid money for goods. That means, `what you have' is important to buy something. In the connected-economy, digital companies provide a special experience for each personalized customer. In the model, `who you are' is more important for customizing the service.

The Transparent Cloud Computing Consortium is the activity where we research such digital innovations and also propose T-Village, a new concept of a future city. He introduce the overview of the consortium activity, as well.

Serverless with David Linthicum
How Serverless Computing Changes Cloud, and Your Job

In a recent survey, Sumo Logic surveyed 1,500 customers who employ cloud services such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform (GCP). According to the survey, a quarter of the respondents have already deployed Docker containers and nearly as many (23 percent) are employing the AWS Lambda serverless computing framework.

View David's General Session: ▸ Here
Download Slide Deck: ▸ Here

It's clear: serverless is here to stay. The adoption does come with some needed changes, within both application development and operations. That means serverless is also changing the way we leverage public clouds. Truth-be-told, many enterprise IT shops were so happy to get out of the management of physical servers within a data center that many limitations of the existing public IaaS clouds were forgiven. However, now that we've lived a few years with public IaaS clouds, developers and CloudOps pros are giving a huge thumbs down to the constant monitoring of servers, provisioned or not, that's required to support the workloads.

In his general session presentation at 22nd CloudEXPO, David Linthicum, Chief Cloud Strategy Officer at Deloitte Consulting, will discuss how serverless changes everything when it comes to using public clouds. Topics covered will include:
  • The ability to remove developers from having to allocate the correct amount of resources for the workload, as well as keep up with what's running, and what resources need to be de-provisioned. 
  • The ability to link serverless computing with both net-new and traditional applications.
  • The ability to have an exact accounting of what resources a workload consumes. 
  • The ability to create workloads that are sets of functions, all with their own automation around resource allocations, costs, and the ability to leverage whatever function is needed to complete its work.

Securing Modern Applications: The Data Behind DevSecOps

Hackers took three days to identify and exploit a known vulnerability in Equifax’s web applications.  I will share new data that reveals why three days (at most) is the new normal for DevSecOps teams to move new business /security requirements from design into production.  This session aims to enlighten DevOps teams, security and development professionals by sharing results from the 4th annual State of the Software Supply Chain Report -- a blend of public and proprietary data with expert research and analysis.Attendees can join this session to better understand how DevSecOps teams are applying lessons from W. Edwards Deming (circa 1982), Malcolm Goldrath (circa 1984) and Gene Kim (circa 2013) to improve their ability to respond to new business requirements and cyber risks.

Blockchain Is Not Solving Real Problems
Blockchain Is Not Solving Real Problems

In very short order, the term “Blockchain” has lost an incredible amount of meaning. With too many jumping on the bandwagon, the market is inundated with projects and use cases that miss the real potential of the technology. We have to begin removing Blockchain from the conversation and ground ourselves in the motivating principles of the technology itself; whether it is consumer privacy, data ownership, trust or even participation in the global economy, the world is faced with serious problems that this technology could ultimately help us in at least partially solving. But if we do not unpack what is real and what is not, we can lose sight of the potential.
 
In this presentation, John Bates—who leads data science, machine learning and AI in the Adobe Analytics business unit—will present his 4-prong model of the general areas where Blockchain can have a real impact and the specific use cases where Adobe sees potential. Anything that falls outside of this, should be viewed critically. Real-world use cases will be presented that fit within this framework, to highlight the areas that our industry should and should not explore.

T is the Shape of Transformation Talent
T is the Shape of Transformation Talent

The digital transformation is real! To adapt, IT professionals need to transform their own skillset to become more multi-dimensional by gaining both depth and breadth of a wide variety of knowledge and competencies. Historically, while IT has been built on a foundation of specialty (or “I” shaped) silos, the DevOps principle of “shifting left” is opening up opportunities for developers, operational staff, security and others to grow their skills portfolio, advance their careers and become “T”-shaped.

This session will explore emerging practices, technologies and related competencies that organizations and individuals will need in order to keep and gain competitive advantage across the value stream. From leadership and cultural to technical knowledge to soft skills, the presentation will help attendees identify a learning path that will help them evolve from an I-shaped specialist to a highly demanded multi-competent T-shaped professional.

Practical IoT for Smart Cities, Manufacturing, and Advanced Analytics - Hand's On Workshop (3/3)
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

Practical IoT for Smart Cities, Manufacturing, and Advanced Analytics - Hand's On Workshop

This hands-on workshop is limited to 20 delegates, first come-first served - please note that it is a 3-hour session spread across 3 regular session blocks. When you sign up, sign up for all 3 blocks!

IoT is already in the mainstream as more and more investments are made into the platforms and technology. As this movement continues to expand and gain momentum it creates a massive wall of noise that can be difficult to sift through. This can lead to difficulty in starting your own projects, or understanding the basic functionality that underlies the IoT technologies that are all around us. Getting skilled up on the basics of circuits, sensors, and how those things work together and with software is the key to being able to understand, engineer, and support IoT solutions in your own environment.

In this workshop, participants will get hands-on guidance in building and coding their own prototype IoT project from scratch. Participants will walk away from this session with an understanding of the fundamental requirements for assembling a variety of circuits, sensors, platforms, and essential tools that will allow them to rapidly prototype IoT projects for their own scenarios. We will also talk about how to make the transition from prototype to production and the increased capabilities and requirements that transition provides. IoT is a critical technology across so many industries, that knowing these fundamentals will make you a better prepared and more effective IoT practitioner. 
No prior experience in development or hardware is required, and no hardware is needed; it will be provided for participants. Participants need to bring their own laptop for the hand's on portion of the workshop.

A Successful DevOps Initiative Starts with Knowing Your Numbers!

IT organizations that don’t know their risk factors and exposure are likely to make investments in DevOps that don’t matter. After working with several teams that lost their DevOps funding after making automation investments in areas that were not business constraints, Anne Hungate's “Know Your Numbers” model emerged. Join Anne to learn how to prioritize your DevOps improvements and demonstrate the impact and value you are delivering. After all, DevOps gets traction and funding when teams can show the business impact of doing it, so if you want your DevOps initiative to take off, be prepared to provide some metrics! You'll discover the five key questions you need to be able to answer to show that your DevOps matters, and leave with seven actions you can start taking as soon as you get back to your desk in order to improve the results of your DevOps efforts.

Security in the Cloud: Advantages of Moving to a Risk-Sharing Model – Not Just Risk Mitigation
Security in the Cloud: Advantages of Moving to a Risk-Sharing Model – Not Just Risk Mitigation

Moving to the cloud doesn’t change your security posture or reduce your risk. You’re still responsible for following all the best practices for your security. So, what does change? Among other things, you may face different challenges as cloud sprawl and “shadow IT” expose different areas of the business. Learn from Sean Ventura, VP & Chief Information Security Officer at Atmosera, how to keep up with changes without slowing down the pace of innovation and agility in the cloud. A security risk-sharing model means you share some of the responsibilities for your overall security with your cloud providers and strategic partners. This enables a partnership based on the best of both worlds: allowing you to stay focused on what’s most important to your business, while your partners participate in the maturity of your cloud security initiatives.

Key Takeaways

Learn how the shared responsibility model places certain types of security obligations on your cloud vendors, service providers and partners.

Gain insights into the benefits of balancing responsibilities between your business, your cloud vendors, and your service providers.

Learn how to take an active security stance, built around policies and processes that keep your business safe while enabling the speed and innovation promised by the cloud.

Visualizing Canary Rollouts with Istio and Helm
Visualizing Canary Rollouts with Istio and Helm

Istio is one of the most important things to happen to continuous delivery/deployment since Kubernetes. In this talk, you'll learn how to leverage Helm and Istio to create reliable automated deployment. To help us visualize the rollout we've built an interactive, open-source app and will ask audiences to help decide if a rollout continues or not. The secret sauce uses a little-known feature of Helm to create arrays of Kubernetes stacks and Codefresh to manage custom health-checks and keeping the rollouts synchronized.

You don't want to miss this very visual and interactive talk.

A DevOps & Serverless Case Study
A DevOps Case Study: CI/CD as a Service, Serverless, and AWS

Meet Ryan and Ernie after their presentation at Contino Booth #230

Contino is working with a large retail banking institution in the US. Embedded in the bank are legacy operating models, technologies and practices. After years of data center expansion, vendor driven software development and various data incidents, the client decided to adopt more automated practices and tooling to allow for secure software deployment to the AWS cloud. The intent is to allow for various development teams to operate independent of the enterprise pipeline backbone, and integrate/onboard applications into the pipeline when ready for a rigorous testing and inspection process while deploying to the AWS cloud.

Through the Contino dual-delivery model, the teams validated and improved the AWS pipeline strategy. The validation and elaboration allowed for the dual-delivery team to scope tightly on assuring security by employing a security concept referred to as the “clean room”. The clean room, as well as the larger pipeline, treats the individual tooling options as commodities and contributors towards the ultimate goal of creating a seamless enterprise pipeline that is simple for contributing teams to leverage. Adding and removing tools to the clean room and pipeline now becomes a matter of minutes, rather than weeks. Essentially the clean room is the enterprise means to create DevOps for DevOps. In short, we created CI/CD as a Service, using Serverless AWS technology such that using the pipeline is based on a subscription / broker model for both service consumption and activity rendering.

With the impact of lifting the enterprise capabilities and technology shifting from private to AWS, there was mindful intent paid towards the holistic enterprise architecture to support such an uplift. Contino worked with the client to model and review all areas of impact, including the business, application and technology tiers using an industry standard Architecture Modeling Language (The Open Group). This view uniquely provides a measured and progressive view of how security, AWS, DevOps and business operations are all integrated to drive for sustainable digital transformation in a highly regulated bank. This view allowed for legacy concerns to be remediated in a modern context and brokered meaningful conversations to handle typical objections that prevent many teams from more simply migrating and consuming AWS public cloud services at scale.

Infrastructure and services that historically took days or weeks to provision can now be tested and deployed ephemerally and in minutes, allowing for more rapid testing and much tighter feedback loops to the product delivery teams.

Authorization for DevOps
Authorization for DevOps

Authorization of web applications developed in the cloud is a fundamental problem for security, yet companies often build solutions from scratch, which is error prone and impedes time to market. This talk shows developers how they can (instead) build on-top of community-owned projects and frameworks for better security.

Whether you build software for enterprises, mobile, or internal microservices, security is important. Standards like SAML, OIDC, and SPIFFE help you solve identity and authentication, but for them authorization is out of scope. When you need to control "who can do what" in your app, you are on your own.

To solve authorization, you may be tempted to hardcode logic against SAML assertions, scopes, or X.509 certificate attributes. But, approaches like this lead to systems that are hard to understand and painful to maintain.

This talk shows how to leverage the Open Policy Agent (which is used by companies like Netflix and Chef) to build a powerful authorization system on top of industry-standard authentication protocols. The talk showcases how decoupling leads to authorization solutions that are easier to understand while enabling fine-grained control over the app.

  • It cannot be overseen or regulated by any one administrator, like a government or bank. 
  • Currently, there is no government regulation on them which also means there is no government safeguards over them.
  • Although many are looking at Bitcoin to put money into, it would be wise to proceed with caution.
  • Regular central banks are watching it and deciding whether or not to make them illegal (Criminalize them) and therefore make them worthless and eliminate them as competition.
  • ICOs (Initial Coin Offerings) are something most have no idea as to what it means and how you utilize it.

Commercial Space- A Paradigm Shift For Cloud Services Delivery
Commercial Space- A Paradigm Shift For Cloud Services Delivery

As blockchain technology becomes the underpinning of a broad base of cloud services, new concepts of secure network services and cloud data storage will be necessary. CISOs are constantly seeking the latest cybersecurity capabilities to provide the highest level of data risk mitigation. As hackers continually evolve their capabilities, CISOs must do the same, or in an instant their worst nightmare scenario will be their reality. Global isolation from terrestrial networks for managed network services and storage of data can be realized as a result of the commercialization of space. The impact of space-based cloud services is a quantum leap in cloud data security. Attendees will learn about leveraging the emerging commercialization of low earth orbit space to provide a paradigm shift for cloud services that enable a new generation of cybersecurity capabilities. Objectives for this session include:

• Understanding a new generation of cloud services that includes seamless global network connectivity, data storage and PaaS

• New architectural designs for reliable, redundant off-world storage

• By-passing cross-jurisdictional restrictions to avoid violating privacy regulations

Solid Liquid Gas - One Platform
Solid Liquid Gas - One Platform

New technologies and processes have propelled dramatic shifts in how data and logic interact to create customer experiences. Having evolved from mainframes to new forms of digital transformations, leaders of various industries are asking themselves: What’s next?

The answer is Platform Oriented Architecture – the precipice of Digital Transformation. This platform is never something to be built from scratch. It should set the foundation for the marriage between everything you’re already doing to everything you want to launch in the future.

Cloud based platforms play an important role in digital transformation by creating an integration metric and API economy. Imagine all the different services you will need for your own Digital Transformation journey – Data Migration, RPA, DevOps, QA; a Cloud Based Platform gives you the ability to implement these services with reduced configuration time and lower cost, thus allowing our clients to stay ahead of the competition and increase their bottom line.

Your new Cloud Based Platforms delivers the value in three categories:

• Strategy - Once an assessment of your technologies capabilities has been completed, a platform diagram can be built providing a positive IT foundation and mapping out your digital initiatives for the next three years.

• Customer experience - Starting with customer centric design solutions, the Cloud Based Platform’s API economy allows for simple integration of new apps that your customers are asking for, further enhancing their experience.

• Technology - Having a Cloud Based Platform creates the capably of using vendor neutral technology solutions which are the right fit for your customers.

Through our expertise, Fulcrum has built templates for specific domains. If your business is related to Higher Education, Supply Chain, Food Industry or E-Commerce, we have something to accelerate your journey into digital transformation for your business. Our knowledge in the customer domain allows us to apply the customer logic on top of a Cloud Based Platform and thus problem solve any issues that may arise during the digital transformation process.

Platform Oriented Architecture – SLGLike all earlier computing architectures, the SLG platform is a “box” comprised of three states of matter — solid, liquid, and gas — that work together to enable digital transformation.

• Solid – Analytics and Insight – With a data structure comprised of big data, this element includes both data science and intelligent data; today, we call this machine learning.

• Liquid – Operational Workflow Logic – Between the solid and liquid layers, there is a “data handshake,” wherein robots (RPA), AI, automation, SaaS apps, DevOps, chatbots and other smart software retrieve information from an ocean of intelligent data. This handshake is necessary to translate the raw data so it can be interpreted by applications to create an experience for a specific medium.

• Gas – Holistic Experience – The information translated by the logic is molded by the applications to take the form of whatever container you put them in, much like gaseous matter. Now, what was once solid, formless data can be interpreted by the software of its container and displayed on phones, tablets, desktop computers, smart watches, IoT devices, the cloud, virtual reality, augmented reality and more.

Look at what customers are asking. Understand what new business is demanding from the market. Then, fast track the process to create the experience. The new architecture will work if your people and culture embrace the agile, rapid delivery mindset. This is the essence of Digital Transformation.

The Democratization of Analytics
Got Cloud: The Democratization of Analytics

A Scenarios approach will present examples that illustrate the democratization of technology consumption, specifically focused on analytics.    Cloud Computing is a catalytic agent driving ease of consumption, with OpEx based pricing, with low capitalization costs.   These factors of ease of consumption and more of a real-time experience has also changed the behavior of how business leverages technology with data-driven decisions.

Outline:
  1. Financial analytic compute that used to take a day, now takes a few minutes at 10x lower TCO due to the ability to leverage virtualization technology by VMWare.
  2. Exelon, based in Chicago leverages a large Cloud provider to compare native RISC-based computing of their enterprise financial analytics batch runs by their Finance Department to provide for a more real-time response.   Instead of taking 24 hours for batch processes to be completed over-night, these batch runs now take a few minutes. 
  3. Acme Trading Company leverages data analytics to discover key trading strategies based on a handful of simple scenarios and typical outcomes based on Market data compared in tandem with trade execution.   This historical data had taken days to perform and now takes a few minutes empowering trading staff to make changes in their trading behavior faster when encountering Market volatility.  
  4. Beer Analytics:  A distributor or bar-owner has the capability to capture analytics based on by installing flowmeters at the bar’sline at the Point of Consumption (POC). In this way, so each poured drink, brand of beer poured brand can be measured in real time.
  • KEY TAKEAWAY 1: Data-driven business decisions
  • KEY TAKEAWAY 2: A financial approach to evaluating technology scenarios
  • KEY TAKEAWAY 3: Cloud-based data analytics
