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

Partner session: DevOps meet DataOps on Azure (Tent C)

DevOps and DataOps brought together brings you a real Data Driven Organization

Most companies talks about data being the new “gold” and that it is of great importance to be data driven. The cloud enablement also talks about companies becoming software providers as major part of the business case. DevOps as being the modern way of being a software company – “you build it, you run it”. And the importance of using the data in the right way, in respect of GDPR – you can not “develop on production data”. In this session we will discuss how you can combine the capabilities of the Azure Cloud data services to provide data in the right state combined with using Red Hat OpenShift providing the right flexible platform to do both DevOps and DataOps in “one take”. This is a technical session.
