// Extending Enterprise systems with Kubernetes, Istio and Open Service Broker

Tired of struggling with enterprise software customizations?

In this talk, we’ll look into one example of how to make simple things simple again. We’ll present a side-by-side extension environment based on Kubernetes from the ground up, allowing developers to customize the functionality of enterprise systems, using business events and HTTP triggers. It makes use of Istio Service Mesh, benefits from Kubeless and relies on NATS for message routing.

We'll go deep into the technology stack, looking at each of the components and exploring what factors lead to the choice of technology and what alternatives we've left out of the equation. We’ll also look into how that fits into the broader Cloud-native ecosystem and what potential synergies we see with other CNCF projects.
