The Winning Approach to Building Future-proof Cloud-native Applications

Modern Information Technologies including containers, microservices, automation, APIs, mobile and cloud computing are creating huge new opportunities for organizations to win with software. However, how do you reach new heights and keep evolving while continuing to deliver, leverage existing legacy systems and taking advantage of the latest technologies across multiple clouds?

In our Red Hat online conference we discuss how application development has to change to cover cloud-native and hybrid-cloud app environment needs. A seamless synergy with container technologies, API-enabled integration and automation and a razor sharp developer focus are key for future-proof application architectures. In the event you will hear from thought leaders of the industry, success stories and customer examples. Parallel tracks cover business, architecture as well as the developer specific topics related to modern application development environments.

Integration - the path to cloud-native architecture

Ken Jonhson

The adoption of public and private clouds is driving changes in application architecture, development and delivery. This in turn requires new practices and IT architecture. All this change presents great opportunity to deliver new solutions at greater speed and agility than before. However these new apps and services need to operate along with your existing IT assets: databases, Software-as-a-Service offerings, packaged/legacy applications to deliver value to your stakeholders. This session will show how the path to cloud adoption and cloud-native architecture is facilitated through the use of integration, APIs, containerization and agile integration architecture.

Breaking the mold: Using a cloud-based BPMS platform to allow rapid development of customer services at BBVA

Antonio Valle Gutierrez

Business processes touch every aspect of the way an organization runs. Therefore, business process automation cannot be an isolated environment. BPM can be a compelling part of a larger strategy, where business leaders can create the rules to achieve new innovation and business objectives. At BBVA, we have created a new global process automation platform, building on new technological trends, which allows both our business teams and our developers to focus on the needs of our customers. This session will cover: * How we integrated business goals into our new BPM platform * How we transformed our process developers * How we used Red Hat Process Automation Manager to create a new cloud-based BPM platform * How we defined KPIs for processes optimization * Some of the challenges and lessons we learned over the course of the project

Developers are the new Kingmakers - so what?

Brad Micklea

Analyst and market watchers have seen the increasing influence developers have over technology selection choices in enterprises. In fact, developers have been called the "New Kingmakers" by Stephen O'Grady because of their ability to drive adoption of platforms. In this session you'll learn about the growing influence of developers, what they're focused on today, and how to get the most out of them.

Architecting Hybrid Cloud Application Environments for Productivity, Reliability and Change

Steven Willmott

Modern business requires the ability to roll out functionality to customers and employees faster than ever before, yet still requires extreme reliability in service delivery. While new technologies offer unprecedented opportunities to boost productivity it is rarely possible to make wholesale platform changes and constancy remains critical. In this talk we’ll provide an overview of five key architecture strategies that can boost developer productivity, improve robustness and enable long term evolution of IT environments. The impact of containerization, APIs, next generation integration, process automation and development processes. The talk will also cover a number of examples that show how such application environment flexibility can have a major impact on business outcomes.
