Love the idea of containers, a DevOps culture, and how Kubernetes accelerates application delivery while also cutting demand on infrastructure, abstracting it away from you? You get it, but will the business?
In this session, you'll see actual customer examples of building solid business cases that define the benefits, costs, and how many organisations have been able to help deliver a powerful return on investment.
In this session, we’ll discuss our experience working with teams to build and plan the case for change, covering infrastructure, DevOps culture, the use of containers for application delivery, and the benefits change will bring.
Attendees are expected to have foundational knowledge of containers, and their use in development environments. They may be looking at containers as a technology for standardising application delivery, and want to know how best to shift from development tooling, to using using containers in production.
The session will help attendees better understand and qualify the benefits of a container platform, what changes may be needed for adoption, how to identify the value of change to the business, and how to plan the project to deliver.
