Strategy & Innovation – 2 Nov

Experts from the field share the pros and cons of agile for teams that use cloud technology and learn from Bas Karsemeijer, head of Data & Analytics, how HEMA uses data to deliver an unforgettable customer experience.
9:00 am

CLOUD AND AGILE; CURSE OR BLESSING?

Many say that Agile and Cloud can solve anything. But, will Agile and Cloud reinforce each other in business acceleration? Does Cloud serve Agile or the other way around? Can Cloud and Agile work together, or are they not necessarily related to each other? Does Agile suit everyone, or are there environments where it will do more bad than good? What are the most critical aspects that need to be addressed in almost every organization? Monique Dekker asks Senior Technical Agile Consultant Theo Gerrits for guidance and practical advice. This session benefits management, mid-management, and leadership positions involved with Agile and/or Cloud, who want to scale, have questions about practical implementation, and more. In short, gain the right insights to take the next step towards effectively deploying these modern tools and methods.

THE QUANTITY OF QUALITY: IMAGE RECOGNITION LESSONS FROM THE FLOWER AUCTION

As more and more businesses digitalize, physical products often become represented by their photographs. While advantageous in a lot of ways, this also presents businesses with new kinds of challenges. How to ensure that these materials are of sufficient quality? How to measure image quality use it to motivate users to improve? What visual factors make the product more appealing and sellable? We will consider these and many related questions in this session with the example of the world’s biggest flower auction. It will combine a range of business insights with technical showcases in the domain of Data Science. Key words: Data Science, Image recognition, Image quality, Neural Networks, Ranking algorithms, Quality evaluation, Digitalisation

Security in the cloud – 2 NOV

11:30 pm

Threat detection and response in the cloud

In this session we talk about how to do detection and response in the AWS public cloud and what native AWS services can be used to do this. What options are available and what (if any) 3rd party solutions play a role here? If it was up to us, what are the top use cases a security operations center should monitor in a public cloud environment? Is a traditional SIEM solution still required or can we build a similar function using native AWS services?

Securing your Secrets in the Cloud

Have you spotted access keys in code? Putting it directly in your code might not be a good idea. Maybe you saw that Kubernetes offers secrets for this. Have you found your Kubernetes secrets to be readable by everyone? So where do you put your secrets in a secure way? In this session we will look at various solutions, such as Hashicorp Vault, Kubernetes, and solutions offered by AWS.

European challenges for the coming decades of IT innovation

According to Alexandru Iosup, Professor at the VU, Amsterdam, Europe still lacks long-term, strategic innovation and needs to get in the driver's seat. With the Computer Systems and Network Manifesto, he wants to inform readers about developments in computing, the importance of innovation and provide a clear strategy for the Netherlands to stay relevant in the coming decades. In this session, Alexandru shares his vision and discusses scenarios for European innovation in the field of computer systems and networks.

Cloud Security & MLOps

You’ve been hearing a lot about security best practices, but you’re not convinced they can really make a difference? Do you think your resources are safe only because nobody would notice your random IP address? If so – join my session! I’ll show you real-life attack scenarios to convince you that misconfigurations can have dire consequences.

MLOps implemented - how we combine the cloud and open-source to boost data scientists work

In this talk we share our experiences of the MLOps platform we build for our customers and how they boost the way data scientists work. We show how their projects of ML models training can go from zero to production in much shorter time, while achieving superior performance, high code quality, training repeatability and governance. Also interesting from the deployment perspective, the platform mixes best-of-breed cloud managed services with a small number of powerful open-source components (e.g. Kedro, MLflow, Seldon) to get extra functionality that data scientists and their ML models need. It should be interesting to anyone from data scientists to platform builders or architects.
