How to Gain Control Over Your Cloud Native Stack

In 2021, the adoption of Cloud Native still creates competitive advantage. “Speed is not preordained, it’s a choice” - like Andy Jassy says. It’s more important than ever to embrace IaaS and PaaS without comprominsing on autonomy, speed or compliance. Hence, Product IT teams need to establish a holistic view on not only hybrid and multi cloud but also on the multiple deployments their engineering departments take to production environments everyday.

Ensuring great product experience for customers is a key driver key and in the era of cloud native can only be achieved by automating as much as possible. Especially when it comes to documentation, violation spotting and resolution, having accurate and up-to-date data at hand for a variety of stakeholders becomes essential.

In this talk, you will learn:

  • Why now is the time to double-down on Cloud Native
  • How LeanIX itself is handling their fast-growing Microservice Landscape
  • What you can adapt for your environment

  • Dominik Rose
    Director Customer Success Engineering

Intelligently Leveraging Your Data: Why it is okay to "shift right" as part of your testing strategy

But how do we know we are testing the right use cases before deployment? What if we have complex business rules that preclude managing clear and easily executable test cases?

As testers, we don't usually have the time and the means to test everything, and sometimes we just don't know what we don't know.

With the rise of big data and our executive's obsessive attention to using analytics for decision making, we also can leverage data to assess system behaviors without having to replicate the end-to-end business scenarios.

In this talk you will learn about

* specific tactics for mitigating risks
* how to supplement you testing strategy leveraging your organization's own data
* what it means to provide confidence in software releases
* specifics on how to apply this approach with detailed examples

Purpose driven Cloud Strategy and role of IT infrastructure in it

Just upto 6-7 years ago, many leaders believed that Cloud is just a fad. These leaders represented some of the largest technology companies that have been legends in their respective business domains.

Well the reality is for everyone to see now. However do we believe that all of us in technology world today are fully onboarded with the idea and understanding of Cloud? The understanding of Cloud, its requirements, technology landscape behind it and business outcomes that it can influence are probably still evolving.

Many of the companies still don’t run on cloud, either they are not ready for It or they don’t see a dire need to go on Cloud. Sometimes IT budgets don’t allow it, sometimes path to move to Cloud is not clear and most of the times, the companies are victims of heavy customization done systematically by their employed ITvendors.

Key takeaways:

  • IT and Business to work and plan Cloud strategy together; A purpose driven Cloud strategy.
  • Importance and relevance of holistic Cloud strategies with multiple options that are affordable and sustainable.
  • Role of infrastructure in all versions of Cloud. The impact of choosing the right type of infrastructure, an infra vendor that is right for you.
  • Transformation journey to Cloud being seamless, agile and flexible. Automation is an imperative.
  • Seamless integration of infra with business applications and processes for better decisions.

With changes in the model during training, accuracy in Inference goes down, versioning of dataset, model explain ability becomes important. This session discuss systematic approaches to take for scaling AI use cases.
