Arbetsförmedlingens resa till containerteknik och DevOps – och GitOps!

Customer session

I den här presentationen får du ta del av en viktig aspekt av Arbetsförmedlingens digitaliseringsresa, nämligen bytet av den underliggande tekniken för de digitala tjänsterna. Du får höra hur allt startade, kulturellt och tekniskt, och hur Arbetsförmedlingen steg för steg kommit till där man är nu. Idag ligger 90% av de egenutvecklade applikationerna på OpenShift, och du får höra vad man ser som framgångsfaktorerna bakom. I slutet av passet finns tid för en frågestund.

Zenseact: Volvo and Zenseact's journey to developing self-driving cars with Openshift

Customer session: Zenseact

Developing safe autonomous driving technology isn’t just about complying with standards. It’s about teaching cars to see, think, and act like humans. Zenseact’s AI software is used by Volvo cars like EX90 and Polestar. In this session, we’ll walk you through how we build and deliver our software on OpenShift. Additionally, we’ll talk about how we've moved our CI system from a VM-only approach to empower our development toolchain using cloud-native technologies with Openshift, Ceph, Runai, and Kasten. We’ll also discuss how our development organization is creating a safer car. As developer enablement is key at our organization, providing the right toolset and ability have a huge impact on our development flow. We have been able to cut business-wide KPIs in half by implementing Buildbarn cache and remote execution among other services into Openshift. At Zenseact, we are working closely with our partners to ensure that our platforms perform at a high level and provide our developers with the resources they need.
