Address and Direction


Cloud Native for Enterprise seminar

Container Solutions are proud to host a free knowledge sharing session for technology managers across the globe. This event will give select groups the chance to ask difficult questions about the realities of implementing Cloud Native technologies such as Kubernetes and Docker. World leading experts in Cloud Native will set the scene and offer an open discussion about the challenges that all participants are experiencing.

Technology is often the easy part but migration to a new operational model and mindset can bring a whole host of cultural, ethical and business challenges.

Who Will Benefit?

  • Business leaders who play a strategic role in organisational success and improvement.
  • Those who have some knowledge of cloud and Cloud Native but want to learn more.
  • Those who are geared towards results and have a strong drive to use technology to take their business to the next level.
  • Those who are aware that success is a process and requires a wider vision than simply plugging in a new technology.


Why is automation essential for succeeding in a Cloud Native transformation?

  • Why Cloud Native can be deceptively easy to start but quickly become very difficult to finish.
  • How to get started with automation and what to expect next.
  • How to separate control and communication hierarchies to make sure information flows more freely without destroying the control that regulated industries need.
  • How emergent strategy is used to balance learning with a control during a transition to Cloud Native.
  • How the Container Solutions' Maturity Matrix can be used to drive change across a whole organisation.
  • How technology platforms drive organisational performance and how to succeed with them.
