Cloud Native - faster development, lower costs & more growth - 12 December 2019

Introduction

Terms like the Cloud, Serverless and Microservices are nowadays gaining more and more traction. These technologies have many benefits and a countless number of companies build a substantial market advantage with them. Technology can play an important role in reducing limitations, costs and risks. Moreover, it can of essence in order to achieve:

  • Flexibility,
  • Scalability,
  • Competitive Advantage,
  • Company Objectives.

In order to maximise those benefits it is necessary that you utilise technology in such a way that will allow you to make optimal use of it.

For example, there is a big difference between ‘only’ hosting an application in the cloud and the actual use of all the benefits the cloud has to offer. Cloud Native Development – the actual development of applications for the cloud – is becoming more and more a requirement in organisations where IT is an important part of the company strategy.

If your organisation is becoming increasingly dependent on IT-systems, it is important that you get a better understanding of the requirements that you need to meet. Adopting the right approach and developing applications in new ways – as a collaboration between the IT and Business – is essential for this.

Goal:

We see that many organisations want to use these new technologies. Hosting applications in the Cloud is already offering many benefits, especially on the operational side.

However, actually developing applications in a Cloud Native way in order to make optimal use of the (new) opportunities, requires a different way of working, opposite to the traditional way.

During this session we will cover the following:

  • The benefits of developing in a Cloud Native way,
  • What this way of developing entails,
  • How you can steer your organisation towards this way of developing,
  • How you can break up monolithic applications in small microservices.

Trifork develops applications in collaboration with its customers. We therefore are familiar with diverse ways of developing: traditional, hybrid and Cloud native. We would gladly like to share with you the learnings we have accumulated on our journey. This is the reason we are organising this Crash Course.

John Segers

John Segers (solution architect at Amazon Web Services) will also be present as a guest speaker to shed light on the benefits of cloud native development from an infrastructure perspective. Infrastructure and development go together hand in hand.

For Who?

If you would like to know more about the current technologies that can make your company future-proof, then this Crash Course is for you!

We offer this Crash Course for people that are interested in the technologies of the future, and want to do more with their current and future systems that are critical for their business.

We focus on people that actually want to start working with these technologies. Not because they will start programming themselves, but because they see these technologies influencing future developments in their organisation. Therefore we expect individuals that can make decisions and are operating on management level, like C-level or senior roles in innovation, technology and business.

*Because of the limited seats available, we will let you know within 24 hours whether you’ll be able to attend.

Topics:

During this Crash Course we cover the principles and applications of technology from a business perspective. We will explore what value the use of technology can bring to your organisation.

We will extensively cover multiple practical cases. Also, we will do a deep dive into the problems that different organisations have faced, the technology that offered a solution to their problem, and why that specific technology was selected.

In short we will look at the following elements from a business perspective:

  • The importance of IT for business operations in our days,
  • The technologies of the future (Cloud, Serverless, Microservices),
  • Practical cases.

Networking Lunch:

This session will take approximately 2,5 hours and will start at 10am (walk-in from 09.30am). At the end of the Crash Course you will have the opportunity to ask questions. Also, this will be an opportunity for you to network with other attendees during lunch time at an informal setting. We will conclude the session at approximately 1pm.
