    Driving Business Insights with a Modern Data Architecture

    Your customers probably want a better experience with your brand. Your different business teams want and need better insights in their decision making. Almost certainly, your finance and operations teams require this to happen at a fraction of the cost of traditional on-premises options. Modern data architectures on AWS help many of our best customers realize all of those goals. Your business data contains critical information about customer behaviors, operational decisions, and many factors that have financial impact on your organization. Increasingly, this data sits beyond your transactional systems, and is too big, too fast, and too complex for existing systems to handle. AWS Data and Analytics services are designed from our customers' requirements to ingest, store, analyze, and consume information at record-breaking scale. In this session you will learn how these services work together to deliver business automation, enhance customer engagement and intelligence.

    Automating Event Driven Security in the AWS Cloud

    You are quickly building and deploying exciting services on top on the AWS Cloud. As your deployment matures, you start to understand how each of these services has it's own unique challenges when it comes to operations and security.
     
    Making sure that the diversity available in AWS services doesn't increase the operational burden on your teams is a significant challenge. If you don't use the right strategy, you risk implementing a unique security approach for each service.
     
    In this talk we'll look at an overall security strategy for your deployment pulled from the real-world experiences of some of the top companies around the world. This strategy along with services like AWS Lambda can provide a unified view of your deployment and automatically respond to incidents… regardless of scale.

    Best Practices for Re-architecting & Optimizing Large-Scaled Data Systems on AWS: Oracle Migration and Big Data Streaming Solution

    Data has grown to become a valuable asset to drive fundamental business-changing decisions. The pressure of handling real-time, massive amount of data to bring about new values is weighing on the already overloaded systems. This keynote looks to share some of the best practices in Cloud re-architecting to leverage the power of AWS and provide the systems with the ability to handle large-scaled data: from migrating the entire Oracle database to AWS infrastructure & services; to re-designing the entire architecture to use cloud-native services (Amazon Kinesis, Amazon DynamoDB, Amazon S3) & enjoy the great benefits of AWS. Each of these scenarios is proven to bring about tremendous benefits to customers, including improving performance by up to 100 times and reducing the cost significantly.

    Architecting Application Services For Hybrid Cloud

    The cloud is transforming the way businesses deploy and manage applications. Organizations are increasingly deploying and migrating applications to public and private clouds primarily to drive agility, operational efficiency and cost savings.
    While we all recognize the benefits of Cloud,  the fact is that there are significant differences between how an application runs in a public IaaS provider data center designed for multiple tenants and how it runs in your private enterprise datacenter.

    Whether applications are revenue generating or critical business apps, they must ensure the same great user experience, including across associated availability, performance, and security services. However, there are challenges that need to be addressed, including determining which workloads are suitable for the cloud due to the inherent design of cloud data centers, the application delivery and security capabilities of each cloud provider, and the overall lack of visibility and control.
    Attend F5 Networks presentation session to learn how App-Centric Strategy  provides the critical services to make your business applications GO SMARTER. FASTER. SAFER whether you’re planning to architect a public cloud, private cloud, hybrid cloud, deploy or re-architect your apps, or migrate to SaaS.

    Building an Investment Case for Mass Migrations to AWS

    While cloud is fast becoming the new normal for organisations of all sizes, many IT executives & budget owners struggle to articulate the business value of moving to the cloud in terms that resonate with the Board and the broader C suite. In this session, we will talk through a live customer migration investment case that we had developed for a customer to undertake a commercial evaluation of their move to the cloud. It will illustrate the true impact of cloud computing on the overall IT cost base along with migration costs and associated non-cost benefits. Finally, we will discuss how AWS can support you in developing a similar investment case for your organization through a holistic framework.
