Mode 2 is a regular meetup about IT innovation within large companies across central Scotland.
Each meetup will feature two short talks and a chance to connect with IT innovators in a relaxed environment with free beer/wine and pizza. The talks for this meetup are:
1: Andrew Kane, Enterprise Solution Architect, Amazon Web Services
What can the Cloud do for us?
We will discuss some of the key drivers of why Enterprises move their workloads to the Cloud, many of which are non-technical in nature. Whilst some customers do literally lift-and-shift their workloads into Cloud environments to take advantage of some aspects of these, some of the real benefits really come through the adoption of Cloud-native technologies. We will touch on a few of our key serverless technologies, and show how one global Enterprise customer used this to help accelerate the pace of Cloud adoption internally as well as radically changed their Deployment and Operational models.
2: Tony Christensen, Head of DevOps Development and Implementation, Royal Bank of Scotland
Achieving Continuous Delivery through DevOps - a maturity model that works!
