EVENT


Join us at AWS Re:Invent 2016 28 November - 2 December at The Venetian in Las Vegas
Amazon Web Services’ annual re:Invent is a can’t miss affair. Over 30,000 professionals from a wide array of businesses and backgrounds are expected to descend on Las Vegas for this year’s event to share ideas, listen and learn. We’re proud to be a Diamond sponsor at this year’s event. Through our long-running partnership with AWS, we’ve seen first-hand the transformational impact cloud solutions bring for our clients. Come and meet our team, hear from our subject matter experts and see how we can help accelerate your journey to the cloud.
over 500+ certified AWS architects 2000 + technologists experienced / trained in AWS technologies. #reInvent

Must Attend
Sessions Several of our own cloud experts will lead re:Invent break-out sessions on a variety of cloud-centric topics: managed services, security, going “serverless” and more. Have a look at what we have lined up:
#1
Accenture Cloud Platform Serverless Journey Tuesday, November 29th, 11:30am – 12:30pm
Accenture Cloud Platform helps customers manage public and private enterprise cloud resources effectively and securely. In this session, learn how we designed and built new core platform capabilities using a serverless, microservices-based architecture that is based on AWS services such as AWS Lambda and Amazon API Gateway. During our journey, we discovered a number of key benefits, including a dramatic increase in developer velocity, a reduction (to almost zero) of reliance on other teams, reduced costs, greater resilience, and scalability. We describe the (wild) successes we’ve had and the challenges we’ve overcome to create an AWS serverless architecture at scale.

Building Enterprise Cloud operations as-a-service with T-Mobile Wednesday, November 30th, 11:30am – 12:30pm
After launching several thousand EC2 instances in the cloud, we've learned that the key to running an IT fleet successfully on AWS is enforcing operational and economic discipline. As AWS service consumption grows, operational costs and overhead shouldn't grow linearly. Instead, IT should encourage new tenants that migrate from data centers to AWS to slowly shift toward a self-service delivery model and adopt the DevOps operations model. Creating and offering an AWS Cloud operations service catalog enables organizations to efficiently take full advantage of AWS' flexibility and modularity. T-Mobile, whose journey to AWS Cloud management started more than 2 years ago, uses a service catalog to enforce operational discipline in the Cloud. Their catalog is custom crafted for each Cloud-based IT workload. This session provides insight into the AWS Cloud operations strategy and its transformation, the creation of a Cloud operations service catalog, and how this approach supports reliable engineering on AWS.

How A Federal Agency Transformed Work and Adopted DevOps with GitHub Thursday, December 1st, 11:30am – 12:30pm
In this session, you’ll hear from GitHub and Accenture Federal Services, a trusted advisor to the US government, on why they have continued to invest in the adoption of and transition to cloud services. After migrating to AWS cloud, one agency deployed GitHub, the cloud-hosted, distributed version control and collaboration platform, as the backbone of its DevOps program.

Now, thousands of users on software development teams at the agency collaborate both internally and with other agencies faster and more efficiently than ever before. Learn how they decreased duplicative work, raised the quality of their code, and greatly increased delivery velocity.

Our Accenture Federal Services speaker will share details on what it’s like to run GitHub Enterprise on AWS for a federal agency, including the unique challenges and solutions that stem from running an appliance in the cloud, and advice for others considering this path.
