Registration is closed for this event.

Successful companies live in the cloud—full stop. Cloud frameworks and technologies provide a competitive edge—but they also bring security concerns, data challenges, cost considerations, and compounding complexity. You need to have a pragmatic plan in place now to adapt to the cloud and its rapidly evolving complexity—and to provide your teams with the tools and techniques they need to rise to this challenge. But it’s not easy.

Join us on May 18 to hear from some of the brightest minds in the industry and to discover how event-driven integration enables new organization strategies; see how security driven by zero trust and automation will transform your understanding of privacy, identity, and observability; and learn how to enable and nurture developers when experienced cloud developers are hard to find. The event is free, but reservations are required.

Note: Today’s event is a rebroadcast of the May 17 edition of O’Reilly Radar: Innovation in the Cloud.
