In recent years, cloud, data analytics, and other advanced technologies have allowed companies to fundamentally alter their means of doing business.  Product companies want to offer services, financial companies want to become software companies, and every company wants to use data to personalize products/services for their consumers.  The underpinnings for this transformation are the seamless release of multiple features into production on a daily basis.  Embedding an "app-store" mentality into organizations which typically take a long time to perfect production environments and applications.  In this session, the providers of cloud services (Microsoft and Amazon) offer insight into market strategy and economics.  Application run-time and frameworks will be covered from the perspective of Kubernetes and containers.  We will also review the program aspects of driving a successful transformation.  Learn how you, your company, and your customers can be better prepared to navigate the environment in which cloudy with a chance of devops is the new norm.
