Chrysalis = Metamorphosis

The theme for our 2019 conference is chrysalis.

So why Chrysalis? In nature, chrysalis can describe the process of developing, the journey between the cocoon state of a caterpillar through to the transformation of a beautiful butterfly. In the same way, enterprises are undergoing a profound metamorphisis.

For years, experts have been promoting and enterprises have been investing in digital transformation in response to the threat of business disruption and the abundance of technical possibilities. But many of those efforts fall short of expectations, because they address technology issues without caring for larger business issues.

In this session, Karen will describe TechVision’s safe digital transformation reference architecture as a foundation for you to assess the key elements you’ll need to address as you safely execute on a digital strategy.

Solving for security in an agile development world

New development models are integral to most enterprises future-state architectures…but they must be secured and properly orchestrated. This session describes TechVision’s DevSecOps reference architecture and key enterprise planning considerations/business benefits.

Aligning security posture and cloud-native architectures

This session describes new methods, capabilities, and instrumentation to protect business assets in cloud-native environments. Enterprises need to apply DevOps concepts to security, understand the role of a service mesh, and employ detection engineering to secure cloud-native systems.
