Tech Insights – The Digital Transformation series


Today, organizations around the world are embracing digital transformation by ditching their outdated legacy systems, and instead opting for digital-ready technologies to survive, innovate and be agile. And to take this leap, you need to evolve the technologies, the organization model and the processes for interacting between people and technology.
Most times, the biggest step is to know exactly how you can go about doing it. That’s how Tech Insights – The Digital Transformation series came into being – It’s a platform exclusively conceived to bring forth the varied digital transformation channels and technologies that can help enterprises move in the right direction and adopt the right digital strategies.

How to modernize your Apps and Infrastructure through DevOps?

The 1st series of Tech Insights – The Digital Transformation series will focus on the business values you can acquire by modernizing Apps and Infrastructure and move towards digitally transforming your organization. This interactive event will provide an ‘innovation and knowledge-gaining’ platform for you and your team.

  • You can learn how to leverage platform technologies to securely deploy applications across any cloud, reduce the time to build-test-run new and existing applications, and how both Developers and Operations teams can gain greater visibility into the processes that will increase overall profitability for the business.
  • Enterprises across South East Asia are now accelerating their Digital Transformation initiatives with containers and microservices. One such interesting demo will be presented at the talk, to help throw light on how innovatively companies can transform their application development processes and IT infrastructure, attaining unprecedented efficiency.

Tech Insights – The Digital Transformation series is an invitation-only event, which is led by senior business and data technology associates from Docker and Ashnik, who will offer you strategic-level insights into what enterprise leaders should do to explore and join the path to Digital Transformation.
