Achieving Business Agility with Cloud-Enabled Solutions

In this workshop, Chris will examine how organizations are taking advantage of flexible cloud-native architecture to compose APIs into business-driven, cloud-aware solutions. Additionally, he will explore how to optimize API-first practices, remix cloud services, and accelerate business agility using an enterprise DevOps platform as a service (PaaS).

  • Location: Conference Room 4, Level 2, Mission Bay Conference Center at UCSF

  • Building applications that can seamlessly and smoothly migrate between local servers, public clouds, private clouds, and cloud hybrid environments.
  • Using DevOps and API management to take advantage of new opportunities for monetization and ecosystem development by extending processes and services to customers, partners, and other groups within the organization.
  • Enabling the robust life cycle management, governance and collaboration to continuously create develop and deploy enterprise applications into cloud environments.
  • Encouraging adoption and reuse through the deployment of an intuitive Apple or Google Marketplace-like storefront that lets developers easily subscribe to and consume APIs, applications and gadgets.
