We all want to use Cloud in our projects, and every customer I talk to has developers that want to pioneer their company’s adoption of the latest and coolest stuff. But for every success story there is a painful admission: Crazy costs from unconstrained adoption; sensitive data suddenly stored somewhere it shouldn’t be; technology gone wild as every project tries something new.
The solution is governance, and making sure you, the developers and IT Pros who are advocating cloud in you organisations understand the management needed for successful adoption is key: When you convince your team to move to Azure you can get extra credit for helping your organisation move to the cloud without the pain.
There are some essential tools in Azure that you need to know about, to help you apply rules to your loud estate and ensure they are followed. In this session I’ll talk about and show RBAC, Policies, BluePrints, and Management Groups, and discuss how you can use them to support effective cloud governance.
We have been seeing it in movies for years, cars that drive without any human intervention or interaction. What looks futuristic at first, is now being worked on by all car manufacturers. The ultimate goal is building a full Level 5 Autonomous Car. Though it might still take a couple of years (or decades) to achieve this, the technology investments are already happening today and the foundations are laid for these challenging projects.
In order to build such cars and get these validated, massive data sets need to be processed and analyzed over an over again. The industry has set clear expectations and the validation of such “human replacement” scenarios are lengthy and very expensive. The goal is clear, build a car that can do better than a human … but can it?
We will start by talking about the business side of things. What are the 5 levels of autonomous cars, where are we today and what are the (legal) requirements to bring these to market. We will also clearly sketch the challenges the industry is faced with and what they need to come up with in order to succeed over time.
In the major part of the talk, we will go deeper into the architectural side of things. We will walk you through the complete end-to-end “reference” architecture of such solutions on Azure. Don’t expect too many demos or code, but a true architectural talk on the challenges and solutions for massive scale. First we will explore the mass data ingestion challenge, expected to be in the PB range on a day to day basis. We will talk about the challenges around data redaction and master data management, in order to be allowed to use the data. Once these 2 pieces have been cleared out, we will go deeper on the mass compute and storage needs and the appropriate Azure architecture that can be leveraged to successfully build these kinds of solutions.
To conclude, we will see a couple of these Azure services in a concrete and life scenario, like VMSS, Limitless Storage / ADLS v2, Azure Cycle and many more.
The Cloud keeps making it better and easier to run your code. There are multiple ways you can deploy and run your Applications. Technically there are great solutions today and even better promises. There is a bigger picture, how we view compute hosting, and how we would measure application success in the future. In this keynote we will look at the beginning of the Cloud, what was, and lay a foundation for understanding the present. We will see where we are today with Cloud Compute and identify the good and the less optimal. This will provide us with the foundation to understand and gaze forward to what is likely coming! We are in the greatest IT-migration in the history of our industry – the move to the Cloud.
In the cloud no one can hear you scream… or can they. Even though Microsoft has a tremendous army of gadgets (besides the sharks with freakin lasers that is) in place for defending your environments, sometimes you need that additional little thing. The goal of the session is to provide you some guidance and an overview of Azure’s security measures, either out of the box activated or the additional ones you can foresee. Next to that you’ll get an idea on how to monitor and react to threats that have been noticed or unnoticed. Expect some PowerShell, Azure architecture, and service tweaks which can help you settle at ease in your new condominium with panic room.
Chatbots come in different flavors and Microsoft technology has you covered when starting to build chatbots. With the addition of cognitive services like LUIS, QnAMaker, emotion detection or image recogntion to name a few, one can create some really compelling bots
This session shows you the basics on Azure Data Lake, and then some… This technical session includes demo’s on how to store information in Data Lake Store and how to use PowerBI to create reports based on data from Azure Data Lake.
During this talk, Alex Mang will walk you through the steps of maintaining a stable environment for running microservices architecture based application, without the hassle of installing, deploying, maintaining or running an underlying cluster and orchestrator.
This talk will cover Azure Service Fabric Mesh, as a mean of running production-ready workloads – simply upload your code and configuration, specify the required resources and availability of your app and voila: all the desired infrastructure is readily available and handled in case of failures, thus making sure that the applications are highly available.
Join Alex Mang for the ‘Develop, Run and Deploy Serverless Microservices’ session and learn how to become more productive and agile when it comes to adding business value to your applications.
Azure offers a wide range of services, with which we can build powerful solutions. But how do we know which services to choose, and how to combine them to create even better architectures? In this session, we will take a look at real life scenarios, and how we solved by leveraging the power of Azure.
Modern applications leverage a variety of services, and often span across on premises, IaaS, PaaS and SaaS. Monitoring these environments is different from traditional systems. We have more and more data available from the platform with the likes of ARM Activity Logs, Azure Monitor, Log Analytics and Application Insights.
With a massive amount of signal and noise being generated in all these systems, how do we get our arms around what is happening? Is my application impacted in an ongoing Azure outage? Are my integrations intact? Which services from Azure should I use to monitor my application end-to-end? Come and hear how to answer these questions. After the session, you’ll have deeper understanding of end-to-end monitoring techniques in Azure solutions and know which services to choose for which scenario.
In this session I will take you along a journey where we have an existing legacy application that we will enable to be released multiple times a day.
I will teach you how to apply modern release techniques that enable you to move from long and tiresome release cycles to releasing multiple times a day. I will cover the fundamental concepts of DevOps that will enable multiple releases
a day. think of concepts like: Feature Toggles, Red/Green Deployments, Telemetry, Cloud technologies, deployment automation, etc. This session will learn you how
to release quality software any moment you want.
Microsoft Cosmos DB is the swiss army NoSQL database in the cloud. It is a multi-model, multi-API, globally-distributed, highly-available, and secure N0-SQL database in Azure. In this session, we will explore its capabilities and features through several demos.
It is not a secret that it is hard to manage sensitive information. Azure Key Vault allows you to securely store this kind of information ranging from secrets & certificates to cryptographic keys. Great! But how do you use it? How do I authenticate with it and how do I build robust applications with it? Come join me and I’ll walk you through the challenges and give you some recommendations.
The goal of this session is to help you plan and execute a successful deployment and the Architecture of Azure Container Instance (ACI) and Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) and last but not least Azure Web App for Containers. All with Platform as a service (PaaS). This session details the differences between ACI and AKS & Azure Web App for Containers, provides an overview of the architecture and deployment process with CI/CD Azure DevOps, and should help you make key decisions.
Cool customer cases in the Netherlands! In this session we will walk through several dutch case studies from large customers. We will highlight the use case, business value, architecture and lessons learned.
