About Nordic Cloud Strategy 2020 Conference

Cloud first, agile development, focus on standard solutions, full blown API development, separation of core systems and front-end, automation and a wholehearted focus on new modern cloud solutions as the future front-end.

This is what the plans and the cloud strategy look like for many modern organizations. And for many, it is a strategy that is currently being translated into concrete investments, efforts, and innovations.

At the same time, some financial companies have managed to create new business areas by developing products for other financial companies.

The extensive digitalization combined with an increasingly intense competition in many industries therefore puts entirely new demands on management, the digital organization, and the technology.

Saxo Bank's journey to a cloud first organization

Ashok Kalyanswamy, CIO , Saxo Bank

Saxo Bank is on a journey whic began in 2017, when Ashok Kalyanswamy was given the task of moving Saxo Bank's entire IT infrastructure in the cloud in a few years and making Saxo Bank a cloud first organization. He has so far done so well that in 2019 he was nominated for CIO of the Year 2019.

The procedure is, in short, that Saxo Bank does not think on premise when the bank builds new. Instead, everything should basically be software-defined. This approach has changed the mindset towards software and cloud first.

Hear how this transformation has proceeded so far, what experiences have been made, what impacts it has had on the organization, and what the plans are for the future.

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) - Next-generation cloud and on-premises infrastructure

Peter Scharstein, Master Principal Cloud Architect , Oracle

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) is an IaaS that delivers on-premises high-performance computing power to run Cloud native and execute enterprise company's IT workloads. OCI provides real-time elasticity for enterprise applications by combining Oracle's autonomous services, integrated security, and serverless compute. Available for public cloud.

For on-premises requirements, OCI is available on the new Dedicated Region Cloud@Customer—behind a company’s private firewall and in their data center.

In Gartner's new report: “It’s Time to Include Oracle as a Viable Option When Evaluating Public Cloud Providers” you can get an idea of why to consider Oracle as a cloud infrastructure partner.

How to optimize and adapt your infrastructure in order to kickstart your cloud journey

Tony Franck, EMEA technical expert for business appliations & cloud , Hitachi Vantara

Are you struggling with finding the right infrastructure mix while navigating the cloud first strategies and hybrid and multi-cloud complexities? And are you concerned about securing privacy and compliance? That only means that you are asking all the right questions.

In this presentation Tony will walk through how it is possible to start (or continue) your cloud journey with a scalable and hybrid approach. Looking at all the options of a truly modern datacenter can be the most efficient place for many organizations to focus their efforts: Start fast and easy, scale and grow with simplicity, manage everything from one single simplified portal and at the same time take full control of your costs. Deploy an autonomous hybrid cloud datacenter with fully automated rollout of new VM’s and applications, agile changes and scaling up or down with proven full sw/hw upgrades in a single click, which all makes the modern datacenter as easy as Public Cloud.

The New Normal – Delivering a remote, secure, productive and user friendly workspace with a hybrid multi-cloud design.

Stian Wetterstad, Senior Partner Account Manager , Citrix

Throughout the latest years many organizations have made the move from a traditional on-premises IT infrastructure to a hybrid, or in some cases, a pure cloud service model.

With this change there has been many business benefits and an ease of management for the IT organization. Benefits like agility, flexibility and patch free evergreen solutions.

But there has also been some drawbacks, especially for the end user. Complexity is in many cases higher at the expense of productivity.

How can we provide a secure, productive and user friendly workspace with a hybrid multi-cloud design?

This year we have been through extraordinary times. To ensure the safety of their employees, many organization had to rapidly deploy remote work solutions.

Existing solutions like VPN have been expanded to meet a high demand for remote access.

But is the increasing number of VPN licenses sufficient to ensure a secure and productive workspace going forward?

It has been predicted that over the next years we will see a big change in how we work with more remote workers. This change has now been forced upon us in just months.

The new normal for how we work is here now.

Are you prepared?

Creating the always-on application experience in hybrid clouds

Frank Yue, Principal Application Experience Architect and technology evangelist , Kemp

We build hybrid clouds to ensure availability, scalability, and agility for our applications. The evolution of IT architectures from traditional datacenters to the hybrid cloud has changed when and how technologies are utilized. Load balancing has been a key technology to enable the always on application experience we expect from the cloud. Learn how you can maximize load balancers in your environment, and why not all load balancing solutions are created equal for today's hybrid architectures.

Preventing cloud lock in with modern data architectures

James Powenski, Senior Solutions Engineer , Couchbase

As the number of multi-cloud deployments grows, so too does the need for a single source managed service which is secure and fully automated. Financial services firms demand the capability to deploy data across multiple cloud vendors without being locked in to one provider. This session will discuss the architectural choices available and how they can be used to avoid the problems of cloud provider lock ins.
