Learning from the past: The cloud native systems analyst (sponsored by Oracle Cloud Infrastructure)

Jesse Butler (Oracle)

Location: M1



In the early days of enterprise computing, software and hardware were sold together in proprietary stacks, and application software was dropped on top with little thought to integration. Systems analysts grew from the need to integrate business-critical processes and software with the infrastructure that ran it. Take a brief journey back through time and glean from the past some powerful concepts that can inform today’s choices regarding observability, resilience, and security in the cloud. Then, come back to the future to consider tracing, analytics and security in the context of microservices and containers at scale.

This session is sponsored by Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.
