This event is co-located with Data Driven Enterprise: Data Lake & Data Warehouse Solutions. Delegates may attend any sessions from either of these two conferences.
“Cloud-Native” is a Software as a Service ( SaaS) approach that is emerging as a dominant platform for Enterprise Computing. Many enterprises are building and running “Cloud-Native” applications that exploit the advantages of this cloud computing delivery model; the inherent ‘hybrid approach’ is making this ,a flexible and scalable method. Most important is the ability to offer nearly limitless computing power, on-demand, along with modern data and application services for developers.By attending this conference you will learn
The day’s format: a combination of mini-workshops, panels and presentations.
We are inviting speakers – thought leaders, subject experts and start up entrepreneurs – to share their knowledge and enthusiasm about their work and their vision in the field of Cloud, Containers and such platforms.
Please complete the speaker’s response form and submit a proposal to present at this event.
Our approach is that our events are dedicated to providing a harassment-free experience for everyone, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, ethnicity or religion.

Diversity: In our endeavour to be the provider of knowledge to the business community, we understand that this depends on hearing from and listening to a variety of perspectives that come from people of all races, ethnicities, genders, ages, abilities, religions, sexual orientation, and military service. We welcome diverse speakers for all our events, we do not always fully achieve this goal, but it is an ongoing process.
Dr Richard Sykes, Chair, Cloud Industry Forum & Strategic Advisor, Bloor
We are now entering the age of Big Software, where data storage, processing and networking are all software defined: and a world where the technical infrastructure for data processing is increasingly hybrid, integrating on-site, cloud, IoT ‘edge’ and more. Just as software development has recently evolved to be more closely aligned to driving the operations it is intended to underwrite - thus Dev/Ops - so now the optimum architecture for data processing operations can be shaped by the performance objectives being targeted – thus Arch/Ops. Dr Sykes will set the scene for the two key foci of the day: On Being Cloud Native and On Being the Data Driven Enterprise. He is Chair of the Cloud Industry Forum, and Strategic Advisor at Bloor.
Richard Conway, Chief Executive Officer, Elastacloud
Organisations now look to the Data Lake as the new single version of the truth where they looked as they used to look to a Data Warehouse. In this plenary Richard Conway will assess why every organisation needs to shift their thinking to accessibility of data as the source for all other sources. You will learn all terms and ideas of Data Lake related to design and implementation as well as dos and don’ts. An arsenal of words and good practice that every executive should have in their war chest!
Dominic Harries, Dev Lead, IBM
What does it mean to be cloud native? This talk will explain the whats and whys of building cloud native applications, and examine how the best ways to organise people sometimes mirror the best ways to organise code.
Norbert Eschle, Enterprise Data Architect, Direct Line Group
Most organisations are at the very least considering the move of some or all of their data capabilities to the cloud. This offers agility and the opportunity to explore, test and implement new ways of working. It also challenges Enterprise Architecture to support technology change in new ways. This talk will share some of these challenges and how they can be addressed.

Dr. Paul Fremantle
Dr. Paul Fremantle, CTO and Co-founder, WSO2
Almost every shift in enterprise IT over the past 10 years can be traced to one motivation: delivering business agility. The key areas of this session are: How does Cloud Native computing and APIs enable digital business agility. What are the key challenges in taking advantage of these technologies to gain competitive advantage? How can you create an evolutionary organisation?
Francesco Cipollone, Cybersecurity Cloud Expert, Head of Security Architecture HSBC & virtual CISO Elexon
Modern cloud environment pose a new challenge to the security posture but also at the same time offer an exciting opportunity to leverage new security controls and methods.
The talk will focus on the challenges that security transformations have on an organization’s security profile.
Andrei Cioaca, Cloud Solutions Architect, Capgemini
To deliver successful architecture in the digital era, there is a need to go multi-cloud. How to build a resilient and scalable API-led multi-cloud architecture? How to split your IT architecture over multiple cloud vendors? Those are the key factors that will drive your architecture.
Cheryl Hung, Director of Ecosystem, Cloud Native Computing Foundation
As Director of Ecosystem at the CNCF, my mission is to foster the End User community, ensure end users' voices are well represented and ultimately, that organizations can adopt cloud native successfully.
Through 45 interviews conducted in December 2018, I found that end users face three broad challenges:
♦ Solving an immediate technical need
♦ Growing an engineering team
♦ Building business strategy around cloud native
I will describe how to overcome these challenges with the help of the CNCF, and the CNCF's strategy for end users in 2019.
