Breakout 1 - Industry Solutions

Bridging the operational gap with real-time observability

Instantly gratifying omnichannel experiences across any device at any time have become the expectation rather than the exception. Shoppers want what they want, when and where they want it, and if they don’t get it, they’ll look elsewhere. Learn from Metapack, the leading e-commerce delivery platform, how monitoring the digital customer experience and application performance helps them reduce time-to-market and increase customer satisfaction.

Speaker: Steven Homan, CTO, Metapack

 

Breakout 2 - Modernisation

After Lift & Shift -- What Does Successful Modernisation Take?

Moving to the cloud is only one component of a strategy to modernise your infrastructure, applications, and approach to software development. What does it take to successfully modernize? In this presentation, Matt Reid, Director Technology Infrastructure and Operations at Elsevier, will discuss the importance of breaking silos between development and IT Operations teams by giving them a single pane of glass to understand their systems' end to end performance.

Speaker: Matt Reid, Director Technology Infrastructure and Operations, Elsevier

13:50

Breakout 1 - Industry Solutions

Stepping into the future with confidence

Coming towards the end of a five year transformational initiative ITV looked to improve observability to provide the confidence to migrate a multi billion pound business to new platforms and a new future. Following that successful shift to modern environments ITV is now pushing forward with technology-led business transformation initiatives to maximise the new opportunities that a modern platform offers, whilst keeping a keen eye on how that technology supports their business.

Speaker: Andrew Duncan, Principal Engineer, ITV

 

Breakout 2 - Modernisation

The modernisation journey

DevOps is a mindset that has become a requirement to thrive in today's modern era where software is increasingly complex, and customers become more and more sophisticated. Tandem Bank used a DevOps focused mindset to build out an effective Platform Team that harnessed the use of New Relic monitoring services. It moved its co-location hosted architecture into the cloud within 10 months successfully. All this change ensured it could meet the needs of its customers and use cloud-native technology to scale within Amazon Web Services effectively. Tandem Bank is now envisioning its next steps in its modernisation journey.

Speaker: Matthew Tunstill, Infrastructure Architect, Tandem Bank

Breakout 1 - Industry Solutions

Powering Africa’s Marketplaces with New Relic

The financial services landscape in Africa is extremely fragmented. People lack access to savings and lending alternatives, and 98% of payments are made in cash. Cellulant is a Pan-African financial technology company that is looking to solve that problem, by providing a one-stop digital payments platform. In order to reach the scale needed to operate in 34 different markets, Cellulant decided to modernise their applications and migrate them to AWS. Learn how they reduced their migration costs while improving application performance and increasing customer satisfaction, thanks to the insights provided by New Relic.

Speaker: George Murage, Group Head of Technology Operations, Cellulant

 

Breakout 2 - Modernisation

Multidimensional Kubernetes Monitoring with New Relic

Performance monitoring in a cloud native world is very different from monitoring a traditional environment. During this interactive session, we will show how teams can use New Relic to observe performance and dependencies in their Kubernetes environment, and troubleshoot failures, bottlenecks, and other abnormal behavior—helping ensure that their applications are always available, running fast, and doing what they’re supposed to do.

Speaker: Marcin Cuber, Cloud DevOps Engineer, News UK

14:30

Breakout 1 - Industry Solutions

The Wix way of mastering scale and complexity

Modern organizations share some common denominators: they are embracing the latest cloud technologies, modernizing legacy systems, standardizing IT tools and spearheading cultural changes that help them deliver products and services fast. A key aspect to this transformation is the ability to measure everything in order to make informed decisions, and the right investments. In this talk, Avi Kostantini, the R&D leader at WIX will discuss some of the challenges that come along with being a high growth, 100% agile DevOps shop.

Speaker: Avi Kostantini, Research and Development Manager, Wix

 

Breakout 2 - Modernisation

Gett global technical support: How to manage production

No matter how you define it, the production support role is clearly expanding into more organisations. To be effective in this new role, support engineers must possess a deep understanding of how different systems work together, why they fail, how they can be improved, and how they can best be designed and monitored. This talk by Gett’s Global Tech Support and Incident Manager, Lior Avni, will discuss the cultural shifts needed when creating a production support team, the relationship between the different tiers (Support ,DevOps, DBAs) and how you can apply these practices to enable self-service with greater agility and reliability.
