Site Reliability Engineering

The practice of SRE has risen to a must-have engineering practice for enterprises seeking to accelerate digital transformations or re-engineer their interfaces to digital-first. During our SRE research, 62% of survey respondents said that they are leveraging SRE. As enterprises are implementing SRE in their respective teams, by developing and adjusting the best practices introduced by Google, this operating model continuously gains attention from decision-makers within IT.

Our SRE research has also highlighted a variety of benefits from adopting SRE: teams that have adopted SRE perceived their company as leaders across customer experience and the quality and speed of innovation across different products, offerings, processes or services. Continuously improving customer experience and the speed of innovation requires attention for digital transformations or digital-first to succeed. But there are also challenges associated with the adoption of SRE, such as finding people who are skilled and knowledgeable to step into this new role and operating model.

At this event, you will meet leading SRE experts and practitioners who will share their stories of SRE implementations. You will gain invaluable insights into how SRE practices have accelerated their entry into the digital economy and how their investment has provided returns in business and customer outcomes.

Enterprise Kubernetes

The digital transformation enablers of DevOps and cloud are driving increasingly distributed computing and software architectures. This means that applications are being built as discrete functional parts i.e. as microservices. Now there are more parts to manage and what we have gained in our ability to make changes at speed, we’ve traded off with increased complexity. Teams need a policy-driven, automated solution that dictates how and where microservices and their containers will run. Kubernetes is an open source, extensible microservices orchestrator designed to handle these challenges and monitor and manage these complex, distributed applications and environments. And it’s become a de facto standard.

But installing, deploying, and managing Kubernetes is not that easy. 75% of users say that the complexity of implementation and operations is the top blocker to using Kubernetes in production. Teams have to consider security, multitenancy, and integration with their existing technology ecosystem when they think about using Kubernetes.

At this event, you’ll have a chance to meet leading cloud and microservices experts and practitioners and hear how they’ve used Kubernetes to overcome complex challenges and win at delivering better software, sooner and more safely.
