About this event

Digital transformation may be in danger of becoming an overused buzzword. Yet, real business needs are driving this trend and IT leaders feel the pressure to transform their businesses every day. Whether it is the need for speed, agility, or rethinking business processes as a whole – these challenges are here to stay.

Infrastructure technologies such as Kubernetes let us move fast. In this talk, we will present the tale of how we built our infrastructure and how it’s been like running Kubernetes in production. This also includes touching upon key infrastructure components, like Prometheus, fluentd, and CNCF known projects.

If you are planning to transform your business model, improve your business operations and customer interactions, Digital Transformation Initiatives have few basic components:
• How to align DevOps with your organization’s goals.
• What change might look like — for operations, development and the organization at large.
• The importance of focusing on the team over individual DevOps specialists.
• How to embrace agile ways of working, along with infrastructure as code, code review, continuous integration and unit testing.
