Dynamiczne zmiany, jakim podlegają środowiska IT, tworzą wyzwania nowej skali w zapewnieniu bezpieczeństwa aplikacji. Zmienia się nie tylko sposób ich budowy, wykorzystujący choćby architekturę mikrousługową i komunikację poprzez API, ale także sposób udostępniania, który musi zapewniać możliwość wyboru i zmiany sposobu hostowania między własnym data center, różnymi typami chmury, czy modelem dystrybucji rozproszonej (mesh, edge).To wszystko nie tylko zwiększa powierzchnię możliwego ataku, ale także stwarza nowe wyzwania organizacyjne i budżetowe dla działów bezpieczeństwa. Jak pogodzić nowe potrzeby w dziedzinie rozwoju aplikacjami z rosnącymi wymogami ich ochrony przy utrzymaniu efektywności kosztowej - o tym będziemy mówić w trakcie kameralnego spotkania uczestników społeczności CIONET, w którego przygotowaniu wspiera nas firma F5. W trackie dyskusji postaramy się wskazać: Jakie wymagania należy uwzględnić, aby stworzyć efektywne i bezpieczne środowisko do budowy i wdrażania aplikacji, Jak uprościć zarządzanie ruchem do własnych aplikacji utrzymywanych w różnych środowiskach, Jak zmniejszyć zagrożenia dla bezpieczeństwa wynikające ze zróżnicowania środowisk, w których utrzymywane są aplikacje, Jak zapewnić najwyższe bezpieczeństwo danych wraz z certyfikatami przy udostępnianiu aplikacji, Jak rozwiązania SaaS mogą zwiększyć poziom ochrony własnych aplikacji, Jak uzyskać większą kontrolę nad kosztami bezpieczeństwa przy wykorzystaniu narzędzi chmurowych. Zapraszamy do wzięcia udziału w dyskusji.

CIONET Round Table: DevOps in practice

Many organisations have made good progress on their Agile Transformation. However, they still feel that more needs to be done to deliver top quality products and services at high velocity. If this sounds familiar, then you are probably embarking on a DevOps implementation journey. But what is the optimal combination of cultural philosophies, practices, and tools that allow you to make sure that your development, operations, quality assurance and security teams are no longer working in silos? During this round table, we will discuss the required changes in culture and mindset to successfully transition to DevOps and how to bring them about. We will also talk about creating outcome focused, purpose driven teams, and building products your customers love. Chris Baynham-Hughes, who heads up the Open Innovation Lab of Red Hat in EMEA will help us to start the conversation.

Transforming Operations Through Digital Low-Code Process Automation

Join us in the opulent Private Dining Room of  the legendary Quo Vadis restaurant for what promises to be an eye-opening evening . Famed for its connections with the likes of Damien Hirst  and Marco Pierre White, Quo Vadis is one of London’s finest without a doubt .       The discussion for the evening  will explore how orgaisations have been applying different techniques to automate their end-to-end processes for many years but have encountered multiple obstacles, such as culture against change, knowledge retained by people, information silo’s, rigid legacy systems, lack of data integration, and minimal skillset. It is now time for a radical new approach. Low-code techniques to help orchestrate people, process, data, systems, and bots, to deliver rapid and effective process automation. In this round table Bizagi will share customer use cases such as DHL Group, BAE Systems, adidas, and Old Mutual, to illustrate their success in implementing low-code process automation platform across their operations: Agility - 95% automation return in billing process Efficiency – 60% reduction in supply chain operation costs Customer Experience – 9x faster customer onboarding Speed – 87% increase on approval processes The speed and agility of operational processes is achieved through low-code digital automation. Process orchestration is of particular importance, as it ensures rapid integration into existing systems, whilst retrieving the relevant data and combining the automation of business processes and people. This evening could revoiutionise how you tackle automation across your enterprise. CIONET & Bizagi invite you to an evening of fine dining, great discussion and superb networking evening at 18.30 on 29th March at Quo Vadis , Alex George, VP Customer Success,  from Bizagi will introduce real life case studies.
