X Topic Abstract:

In recent years companies start moving a considerable amount of computing, networks, and data into the cloud. In most cases, the lift and shift model does not bring any advantages and is more expensive to run on the cloud than on-prem. Enterprises invest a considerable amount of effort in reengineering existing enterprise applications to a new cloud-native model to take advantage of cloud-native managed service and use existing cloud capabilities. Just by moving to a microservice model, the company needs to put considerable effort into designing a cloud-native CICD pipeline that can support the long-term growth of the product. In this presentation, we will cover few ways organizations can use Engineering practices starting from using the source control system, versioning up to the automated deployments, all managed in a source control system.
