Modernise Your Monolith Faster with API-driven DevOps Data for CI/CD

Business transformation pressures dramatically escalate the need for faster, more efficient and more effective innovation cycles. Organisations struggle to implement cross-platform DevOps practices to reduce time to market, cost of change, and reliance on niche skills to respond quickly to rapidly evolving business needs with faster dev-test cycles. Complicated data access, governance and security, and a lack of data automation for DevOps and CI/CD stop modernisation initiatives in their tracks.

During this talk, you will learn how API-driven data delivery is your secret weapon in optimising your CI/CD pipeline. Chay will demonstrate how you can fundamentally change the physics of data to match the flexibility of cloud-based infrastructures and automated development toolchains. Hear from our guest speakers to learn how industry leaders have modernised their DevOps toolchain to drive faster modernisation and innovation:
