Evolution of Cloud Driven Organisational Dynamics

12:35 – Innovation fueled by Architecture

Innovations fueled by Architecture. Building bridges and roads in the last decade in Cloud

Architecture choices and Cloud deeply influenced how teams and processes led to faster time to market. In the last decade, many organizations shifted away from silos between engineering and operational teams to semi to autonomous teams. We’ve seen the birth of the Automation Engineer in 2015s to help organizations make more efficient use of the Cloud, now grown as Platform Engineering.

In the late 2016s, as more organizations adopted microservices, the decision-making process became more decentralized, and with its growth, they learned to focus more on community building, creating supporting roles, and providing company-wide direction to avoid repeating past mistakes. With Serverless and Team Topologies joint in the 2020s, we’ve seen a new era of teams getting smaller yet more robust and adaptable to changes in the business.

 In this session, you’ll learn through real-life examples why and how teams changed over the years to deliver value faster and safely, how they built bridges to connect pragmatism and innovation, and how they built roads to remove silos between functions. You’ll learn from battle tested lessons on how teams around the world are solving these issues and give you a head start to the next decade.

Systemized Optimization

09:35: Gain New Insights into Cloud Performance

A Journey from Complexity to Observability

Managing the inherent complexity of software from development to production presents a significant challenge. Drawing insights from complexity theory, we explore how dependencies can lead to unexpected effects in software applications. By employing well-bounded components and smart design patterns, we can mitigate these dependencies and promote loose coupling. Given the vast array of interacting components in modern applications, we have to make sure applications are not just working, but also easy to understand and track. Join us to learn more about how to turn complexity into clarity.

Keeping Ahead of the Storm

09:35: “Accelerating High Performance Financial Modeling with Serverless”

Keeping Ahead of the Storm. Accelerating High Performance Financial Modeling with Serverless. 

Risk modelling is a critical capability for many enterprises, particularly so for the (Re)insurance industry. Traditionally this activity was considered the domain of on-premise High-Performance Compute (HPC) clusters. In this session, we share how leading global reinsurer RenaissanceRe transformed their risk modelling workloads by re-architecting their solutions using a serverless first mindset on AWS. Learn how the company was able to free itself from on-premise hardware constraints and dynamically scale up modelling operations to successfully navigate its way through Hurricane Ian, the third costliest weather disaster on record.

10:25 – “Advanced Event-Driven Patterns With Amazon EventBridge”

Advanced Event-Driven Patterns With Amazon EventBridge

Streamlining microservices communication has always been confusing and proving challenging for serverless engineers. Amazon EventBridge alleviates these concerns and offers a unified approach to employ even-driven computing. The combination of cloud, serverless, and microservices has taken service implementation to a different level. Though this has accelerated the monolith to microservices transformation, it has also introduced new complexities around the service to service communication. Though AWS services such as SNS, SQS, and others helped to some extent, they failed to offer a flexible way to enable filtered routing of messages between microservices.

Amazon EventBridge makes its mark in alleviating many of these concerns. With its flexible and powerful message filtering capability, services can have a renewed way of performing event-driven communication between them. This talk will look at some of the latest developments in EventBridge and the advanced patterns that take event-driven computing to the next level.
