Customer story: Folksam  (Tent C)

Folksams agila resa mot Openshift

Folksam importerade sin första stordator till Skanstull i början av 60-talet och moderniseringen har pågått sedan dess. Kraven på digitalisering och ett förändrat kundbeteende ställer krav på nya lösningar samtidigt som gamla ”synder” skall hanteras. Folksam är i början av sin resa mot Public Cloud och Container. 2020 flyttade vår första applikation upp på Openshift och under första kvartalet 2022 genomförde vi tillsammans med Red Hat ett Open Innovation lab för att öka takten och utmana befintliga arbetssätt. Samtidigt med pågående modernisering har vi ställt om från PM3 till SAFE för att minska avståndet mellan verksamhet och IT. Det här en kort inblick i vardagen hos ett av Sveriges största försäkringsbolag.

Customer story: Arbetsförmedlingen - Den krokiga vägen och den röda tråden  (Tent B)

60 minutes

Den krokiga vägen och den röda tråden

Arbetsförmedlingen jobbar sedan flera år tillbaka med en digital transformation i syfte att effektivisera möjligheterna att utföra sitt uppdrag. Digitaliseringsstrategin beskriver ett tanke- och arbetssätt som stöttar en gemensam riktning i transformationen, både kopplat till myndighetens kultur och dess digitala struktur. För att lyckas med uppdraget och den digitala transformationen har Arbetsförmedlingen etablerat nya gemensamma it-plattformar, bland dessa finns OpenShift Container Platform. Med stöd av sin samarbetspartner Red Hat lanserade Arbetsförmedlingen en Minimal Viable Plattform i början av 2018. Idag har Arbetsförmedlingen ett antal OpenShift-kluster med tillhörande tjänster för att både stödja Lift & Shift av äldre system (monoliter) och nyutvecklade tjänster direkt avsedda för molnarkitektur. Vägen dit har och fortsätter vara utmanande för hela organisationen både tekniskt och kulturellt, men den röda tråden – tillsammans med Red Hat - har varit viktig att följa.

Technical session: Increase developer productivity on Kubernetes with OpenShift  (Tent A)

Increase developer productivity on Kubernetes with OpenShift

Kubernetes has become the standard control plane for containers and containerised applications. But Kubernetes was built for the needs of IT Operations, not developers. In order for code to be deployed, developers need to be able to leverage the benefits of Kubernetes without requiring them to develop a platform skillset. OpenShift simplifies and automates the way you build, ship, and run code. In this session we'll give an overview of OpenShift and the components that make your development process simple, fun and efficient. #Kubernetes #OpenShift #Developer #DevOps #Productivity

Architectural control in an increasingly Cloudy World (Part 1) & Making Agile Work (Part 2)  (Tent C)

Architectural control in an increasingly Cloudy World (Part 1) & Making Agile Work (Part 2)

Architectural control in an increasingly Cloudy World: Public cloud usage in Sweden is pervasive but design questions remain: - What happens if the situation changes, can I design for change? Do I want to lock into a single cloud vendor? How do I build a consistent developer experience when I have more than a single cloud provider? Making Agile Work: Agile is everywhere. But what are the key elements of getting Agile to work and what is missing?

Creating cloud happy applications with Quarkus

In this session you will see how organizations can reuse their existing investment in Java to modernize and create the next generation cloud native applications. Quarkus is a new approach to cloud native Java tackling issues like startup time and memory consumption. It bridges the gap between traditional Java and cloud native capabilities like serverless runtimes. It is just plain ol’ Java but done more efficiently. It also makes developers sparkle with joy. #Java #Quarkus #Cloud-Native #Developer-Joy

Customer story: Strålfors - Digital transformation at PostNord Strålfors – what happened to us?  (Tent B)

60 minutes

Digital transformation at PostNord Strålfors – what happened to us?

The current business development strategy of PostNord Strålfors is geared at profitable growth from being the preferred Nordic Omnichannel communications partner while keeping the momentum as the leading Nordic Print and Scanning Operations partner, in order to manage it for cash. The ongoing business transformation has a very clear mission driver which is to keep Strålfors ready to swiftly deploy new services at scale (Time To Market). This desired business agility depends on various different things, and the potential that cloud computing provides goes a long way towards achieving this desired position. The current cloud strategy for Postnord Strålfors has ignited activities around container adoption, business and IT alignment, ideation with prospective vendors and a procurement cycle in order to enable a Development and Operations (DevOps) culture aimed at achieving business agility. To support DevOps in maintaining order and cost control in the PostNord Strålfors cloud estate, the Cloud Center of Excellence (CCoE) is establishing a business case for investment in three things: Container adoption, skills acquisition and application containerization.
