    Rashmi Tambe / Sunit Parekh - Multi cloud strategy, a necessary evil for an enterprise

    45 Mins

    As per IDC, 81% of enterprises are using multiple public clouds along with one or more private cloud deployments. Opting for a multi cloud strategy is becoming a necessary requirement for most organization driven by many business imperatives such as: leverage best-of-breed services, address business continuity, avoid vendor lock-in etc. 

    Most enterprises struggle with the complexity of multi cloud strategy when they approach it as a reactive response rather than a strategic initiative. We propose a structured framework for building a successful and long term multi cloud strategy which consists of 3 critical lenses: 1) assess the workload  2) select technology and topology and 3) establish cloud operating model. In this session, we cover this multi cloud strategy framework along with pragmatic tips on working with multi cloud. 

1. What got you started/interested in modern software development methods?

Long back in 2005 I started following and learning about agile methodologies for software development and to learn and become really good at it I joined Thoughtworks and since then I am not only following but also helping large enterprises in adopting it.

2. What do you think is the biggest challenge faced by the software product engineering community today?

Software development is an art and building good quality software requires good engineering practices such a unit testing and TDD, Refactoring and clean code, DDD & event storming... and list goes on. So for me biggest challenge is to manage tech debts that is getting added to the backlog and never looked into.

3. What do you think are the most exciting developments in software product engineering today?

Focus on developer experience is key for technology lead businesses, which enables business for better quality software in quick time.

4. Why did you choose the topic(s) you will be speaking about at the conference?

With cloud adoption being defecto for all organisations, most of the enterprises are by default having hybrid cloud situation and with different business drivers also either adopting or looking into multiple cloud service providers. So it is equally important that they look into complexity and how to embrace and adopt multi cloud in more structured way in the session.

5. What are some of the key takeaways from your session(s) at Agile India?

Clarity on different deployment models of multi cloud options and learn how to approach creating multicloud strategy in the structured way. 

6. Which sessions are you particularly looking forward to attending at Agile India this year?

Not yet decided.

7. Any personal remarks/message you want to share with the software community?

Keep learning and conference are good way to know about trends in software development and learn new stuff.
