Customer story: Strålfors  (Tent B)

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.

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

60 minutes

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
