Breaking the Business Bottleneck: Fixing the Problems (Part 2)

For the most part, we know what IT needs to do become a "tech company": move to a more frequent, usually weekly release cycle, focus on customer-centric design, and rely on cloud platforms to automate infrastructure toil. What does the rest of your organization, outside of IT, need to do?

In part two of this webinar series, we discuss new models and tactics to break the business bottleneck across strategy, finance, and management. Based on case studies and first hand experience you'll be able to start planning the rollout of digital transformation beyond IT.

While this approach has driven meaningful change over the last decade, the growing consumption of cloud-native technology to address the demands of customers, and employees alike, is straining existing IT operating models. What began as a data centre alternative in the 2000s, became the foundation of digital transformation in the 2010s, and is now the engine of innovation for the 2020s and beyond. In response enterprises are seeking new, more contemporary, approaches to IT delivery that can overcome the challenges of increasingly rich but complex cloud environments, be responsive to business change and adapt to new opportunities at scale.

    Join VMware’s James McAfee and guest speaker, Sam Higgins, Principal Analyst at Forrester Research, as they explore the importance of best in class platforms and product management practices as the building blocks to unlock IT value - fast.

    During the session you will learn:
    - Why falling technology-enabled productivity, rising digital sameness and growing technical debt requires a new approach to IT
    - How platform thinking delivers IT value at scale for modern applications from the cloud to the edge
    - What a product-centric culture can offer in terms of best practices for delivering customer-centric solutions and reducing the friction between business and technology teams

    VMware's Dr. Gautham Pallapa, Rick Clark, Henri van den Bulk, Mark Carlson, Carl Coryell-Martin, Bernard Golden, JT Perry
    The global pandemic has forced organizations to simultaneously adjust to the new reality of contactless customer interactions and a completely remote workforce., This contactless, digital-first business model with a remote workforce required them to rethink and reimagine the way that they develop customer-centric features that are market differentiators. Succeeding at this requires a strong alignment between business and technology, that most organizations do not possess.

    In this webinar, the Tanzu Value Advisory (TVA) team discusses how enterprises can enable Business and IT alignment, and share their experiences of effective patterns, in addition to anti-patterns that executives and transformational leaders must avoid for successful business transformation.
  • Get Started Using Distributed Tracing with OpenTelemetry in Tanzu Observability Jun 24 2021 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Mary Chen, Senior Product Marketing Manager, Scott Rogers, Technical Marketing Manager, Sri Harsha Yayi, Product Manager
    When managing a microservices environment, it’s critical for teams including developers, SREs and platform engineers to use trace data to fully understand the complexity for root cause analysis. A self-service model to actively trace and troubleshoot each service while also understanding how services interact is needed to shorten feedback loops to rapidly resolve application performance issues. Without traces, teams go blind into their production environment and incidents often involve many DevOps engineers just to establish a base understanding of what’s going on.

    We’ll show you how to use OpenTelemetry automated instrumentation to add automated tracing to your microservice-based Java application.

    We’ll also demonstrate how to use distributed tracing in Tanzu Observability to:
    - Visualize trace data and service maps with metrics
    - Trace sampling, save traces locally, and more
    - Create alerts and share insights with relevant team members

    Yogi Rampuria, Advisory Platform Architect, APJ, VMware Tanzu & Machi Hoshino, Senior Solutions Engineer, JP, VMware Tanzu
    Today, it has become common practice to use the public cloud as the basis for running applications. With more organisations also leveraging containers in production environments, how can you achieve visibility across your infrastructure and application portfolio? You need something that can "observe everything" and deliver analytics that will help you get to the issue-area quickly.

    This session will cover:
    - An overview of the concept of "observability”, an approach that has been attracting attention in recent years with both application and operations teams
    - How observability enables organisations to monitor real-time everything from full-stack applications to cloud infrastructures, so that you can anticipate possible problems, take corrective action and prevent unexpected disruptions
    - The key features you should look for in an observability solution and how this applies to open-source vs commercial models
    - How you can make open-source tools like Prometheus enterprise ready

  • Cloud, Kubernetes, and Making Infrastructure Transformation Work for You Recorded: May 11 2021 62 mins
    James Watters, CTO, VMware Tanzu & Kit Colbert, CTO, Cloud Platform BU, VMware, Derrick Harris from VMware
    The cloud transformation has been happening for more than a decade, and today it’s running in overdrive. However, the goal posts for what’s cutting-edge continue to move and the list of environments that fall under the “cloud” umbrella continues to expand. Anyone transforming their infrastructure today is staring down a combination of VMs, public cloud(s), private cloud, containers, Kubernetes, edge, and everything in between.

    This bounty of options can seem intimidating but, managed well, it’s actually an opportunity to turn infrastructure into a competitive advantage. Compliance, latency, cost, and other factors can all be addressed by selecting the right platform and architecture for the job. Standardizing on technologies like Kubernetes and the VMware Cloud product lineup means ops teams can manage a wide variety of applications much more efficiently because the infrastructure is doing some of the work for them.

    In this webinar, James Watters and Kit Colbert will discuss a range of topics, including:
    - The benefits of running a standard, modern platform across infrastructure locations.
    - The technical and economic realities of operating public cloud, multi-cloud, and Kubernetes environments.
    - The relationship between VMs, containers, and cloud instances, and how to best utilize them.
    - How a cloud native transformation can help empower developers and create a meaningful connection between infrastructure and business objectives.
