Here is how Jason Bloomberg expresses the Intellyx perspective:

Mobile technologies. Cloud computing. Social media. Big data. Internet of things.

The list of technology buzzwords never seems to end.

And yet - digital transformation isn't about the technology. It's about the customer.

Today's customers - both consumers and business-to-business - demand multiple technology touchpoints with the companies they buy from and work for.

This digital technology story is not all about the user interface. You must connect the user experience to existing systems of record in a complex, distributed, cloud-based world.

Every element of this elaborate dance must perform at top speed, every time. Customers demand nothing less.

Enterprises must rise to this challenge. You must nail the technology to be sure. You must also revamp your organization to meet changing customer demands.

And you have to do it faster and better, while never taking your eye off the customer. In other words, you must be agile.

Kubernetes as a Container Platform is becoming a de facto for every enterprise. In my interactions with enterprises adopting container platform, I come across common questions: - How does application security work on this platform? What all do I need to secure? - How do I implement security in pipelines? - What about vulnerabilities discovered at a later point in time? - What are newer technologies like Istio Service Mesh bring to table?In this session, I will be addressing these commonly asked questions that every enterprise trying to adopt an Enterprise Kubernetes Platform needs to know so that they can make informed decisions.
At CloudEXPO Silicon Valley, June 24-26, 2019, Digital Transformation (DX) is a major focus with expanded DevOpsSUMMIT and FinTechEXPO programs within the DXWorldEXPO agenda. Successful transformation requires a laser focus on being data-driven and on using all the tools available that enable transformation if they plan to survive over the long term. A total of 88% of Fortune 500 companies from a generation ago are now out of business. Only 12% still survive. Similar percentages are found throughout enterprises of all sizes.
