We had three speakers from Maersk Corporation, MATRIXX Software, and Tecknuovo joining us at our October Cloud Native London meetup at esynergy. We also had virtual attendees joining us via the YouTube/Twitch livestreams.

We are immensely grateful to Palo Alto Networks, CircleCI, and Sysdig for your generous support and sponsorship.


Kicking off our evening was James Cull from Tecknuovo wrapping up our evening with a talk on Driving Industrialised Enterprise Cloud Adoption (starting at 10:32). His takeaways discussed:

  • How to drive increased cloud adoption within an organisation and help organisations to drive a cloud-first mentality across both business and IT
  • How you can help organisations plan for a move to the cloud, or get greater value out of their existing cloud investment

  • Telecoms has only recently , as part of 5G, adopted Cloud Native technologies
  • There are areas that need some more work for using Cloud Native in Telecoms
