Technology - Virtual Roundtable

Accelerating innovation with open source: breaking barriers in the cloud

2nd February 2021 | 1:00pm - 2:30pm GMT
How are you demystifying data infrastructures to drive innovation?

This virtual round table will focus on the importance of Cloud and Open Source, placing data at the core of business, as well as the significance of managed services to focus resources and accelerate the data transformation journey.

As technology continues to reshape our lives and businesses rely increasingly on data to better serve their customers, there is nothing more relevant than building scalable data infrastructures in the cloud. Viewed as the present and future of data-driven applications, the cloud and open source technologies will become more mainstream to drive innovation. The complexities and challenges that surround cloud initiatives come from its diverse nature and lack of common services. Complexities around platforms, workloads, databases, storage systems, security and governance are only some of the challenges facing industries that rely on data today.

Join Aiven and a select group of peers to discuss how modern data infrastructures enable acceleration of application development and modernization of legacy applications. We’ll explore best practices in dealing with the complexity of capacity planning, deployment and management of data architectures, in addition to balancing performance needs with time and cost allocation.
