About this event

It is playground time again! We are proud to announce that we have teamed up with IBM LinuxOne to present you with this content-packed workshop!

We have been talking a lot about public clouds in our past meet-ups. In this meetup, we will be talking about the IBM private cloud for a change. Please join us if you would like to know about cloud providers other than AWS, Azure and GCP!

Presenter: Phila Dlamini -WW IBM Developer Advocate

The banking industry recognizes that a public cloud yields many benefits, but it is also wary of the potential for loss of control, as well as security and compliance challenges. Private clouds offer much-needed relief, allowing banks and financial institutions to leverage existing assets combined with the latest innovations and providing a DevSecOps mechanism for quickly and efficiently developing applications and deploying microservices into the legacy system. This code pattern uses a hybrid cloud architecture to deploy a banking microservice on LinuxONE. The microservice accesses a simulated retail bank on an IBM Z® Mainframe via banking APIs.
