Who is this presentation for?

Software Engineers, IT Administrators, Line of business

Prerequisite knowledge

General understanding of cloud and data center existence.

What you'll learn

A solid understanding of the components available, how they interact, trade-offs and when to consider the cloud.


This presentation will cover the technology choices for implementing a business solution, starting with the microservices, workflows for data management, and even enhancing an end customer experience.

We will discuss how to leverage the data being collected in a multi-cloud approach to ensure redundancy and high availability. We will cover enhancing the customer experience through machine learning and search engines.

While collecting all of this data we must ensure that the data is created and managed properly. This includes moving the data to enabling different teams for different use cases including security, protecting customer privacy and ensuring full compliance with GDPR.

I will share my personal experiences for tools I have chosen to build business solutions, including a mix of open source, commercial off the shelf software, and some software-as-a-service offerings.
