8:00am - 9:15am

Level: Intermediate

Stuart Williams

Principal Architect and Practice Lead


The team has been involved in migrating many customers applications and systems to the cloud (data center, one of the public clouds, or on-to one of the popular container systems such as Kubernetes or Pivotal Cloud Foundry). Along the way we have noticed certain patterns and anti-patterns, and learned some hard lessons about what should work, what does not work, and what just won't work, and pass them on.

This session focuses on real-world scenarios and problems teams are likely to encounter and talks about how they were handled, and what ultimately turned out to be successful.

You will learn:

  • Patterns and anti-patterns for migration and modernization
  • Common impediments and scenarios
  • How to spot problematic areas and what to do about them
