The Band’s Getting Back Together in ‘Music City’: Register Now for Cleo Connect 2018

Knowledge is power when it comes to improving customer and partner relationships, meeting evolving market demands and industry requirements, and pursuing cloud integration initiatives to expand the value of your IT ecosystem.

That’s why Cleo, the global leader in B2B-led cloud integration solutions that enable these modern business needs, is excited to announce that registration is open for its Cleo Connect 2018 customer event at the Gaylord Opryland Resort in Nashville. Cleo Connect is a three-day summit bringing together Cleo executives, advisers, customers, and partners who are shaping the way today’s enterprises create value through strategic integration technology.

Cleo’s annual user conference, which runs Oct. 16-19, provides exclusive access to the latest Cleo software updates, insights on integration use cases, and a strategic roadmap for the Cleo Integration Cloud, the innovative platform enabling value creation at the edge of digital ecosystems by connecting and integrating business partners, applications, and big data through solutions that support business agility.

A welcome reception Oct. 16 kicks off three days of educational opportunities, hands-on experiences, and social events in the “Music City,” including:

  • Technical sessions highlighting tips and best-practices for using Cleo integration products
  • One-on-one workshops with Cleo product, services, and engineering teams
  • Customer round-table perspectives on how real companies use the Cleo Integration Cloud to increase business value
  • Networking opportunities with peers, Cleo executives, and staff

Cleo President and CEO Mahesh Rajasekharan will deliver the keynote address, titled “Creating Value at the Edge of Digital Ecosystems,” on Wednesday, Oct. 17, with sessions continuing through Friday, Oct. 19. Additional agenda highlights include such topics as:

  • “Modernization Starts with Ecosystem Integration”
  • “Best Practices for Migrating to the Cloud”
  • “On-Premise is Dead: Enter the Private Cloud”
  • “B2B Application Integration Connectors: Deriving Business Value from Your Ecosystem”

“Our top priority is ensuring that Cleo’s B2B-led cloud integration offerings consistently empower each customer to achieve their desired business outcomes and create value in new ways,” Rajasekharan said. “In-person collaboration during events like Cleo Connect helps us align our technology to deliver increasingly better results for our customers, and we’re excited to grow these relationships and open new dialogues on issues challenging global businesses today.”

“Too many software companies abandon their customers after the contract is signed, and we believe in the exact opposite approach at Cleo,” said Ken Lyons, Cleo’s senior vice president of worldwide sales. “We’ve shaped Cleo Connect to be an interactive way for our great customers to get advanced training and valuable face time with the technology partner providing their critical enterprise integration solutions. We value the opportunity to further learn about our customers’ businesses and their top-of-mind concerns as they grow.”

Past Cleo Connect attendees echo similar sentiments on the value of the event.

“I cannot recommend Cleo Connect enough for Cleo customers – and prospective customers – to learn more about the company’s latest integration innovations and its overall direction,” said Octapharma USA Director of IT Michael Donham, who participated in last year’s Cleo Connect customer panel. “I’m again looking forward to this year’s event and the great opportunities to plug into such a collaborative community like Cleo, that’s tirelessly working to solve real-world data movement and B2B integration challenges.”

The Cleo Connect 2018 early-bird registration rate of $795 (a 33 percent savings off the regular conference rate) is valid through May 15 and includes all meals and admission to the special event nights.

Today most companies are adopting or evaluating container technology - Docker in particular - to speed up application deployment, drive down cost, ease management and make application delivery more flexible overall. As with most new architectures, this dream takes significant work to become a reality. Even when you do get your application componentized enough and packaged properly, there are still challenges for DevOps teams to making the shift to continuous delivery and achieving that reducti...
Here to help unpack insights into the new era of using containers to gain ease with multi-cloud deployments are our panelists: Matt Baldwin, Founder and CEO at StackPointCloud, based in Seattle; Nic Jackson, Developer Advocate at HashiCorp, based in San Francisco, and Reynold Harbin, Director of Product Marketing at DigitalOcean, based in New York. The discussion is moderated by Dana Gardner, principal analyst at Interarbor Solutions.
Skeuomorphism usually means retaining existing design cues in something new that doesn’t actually need them. However, the concept of skeuomorphism can be thought of as relating more broadly to applying existing patterns to new technologies that, in fact, cry out for new approaches. In his session at DevOps Summit, Gordon Haff, Senior Cloud Strategy Marketing and Evangelism Manager at Red Hat, discussed why containers should be paired with new architectural practices such as microservices rathe...
In 2014, Amazon announced a new form of compute called Lambda. We didn't know it at the time, but this represented a fundamental shift in what we expect from cloud computing. Now, all of the major cloud computing vendors want to take part in this disruptive technology. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, John Jelinek IV, a web developer at Linux Academy, will discuss why major players like AWS, Microsoft Azure, IBM Bluemix, and Google Cloud Platform are all trying to sidestep VMs and containers...
Using serverless computing has a number of obvious benefits over traditional application infrastructure - you pay only for what you use, scale up or down immediately to match supply with demand, and avoid operating any server infrastructure at all. However, implementing maintainable and scalable applications using serverless computing services like AWS Lambda poses a number of challenges. The absence of long-lived, user-managed servers means that states cannot be maintained by the service. Lo...
With the new Kubernetes offering, ClearDATA solves one of the largest challenges in healthcare IT around time-to-deployment. Using ClearDATA's Automated Safeguards for Kubernetes, healthcare organizations have access to the container orchestration to dynamically deploy new containers on demand, monitor the health of each container for threats and seamlessly roll back faulty application updates to a previous version, avoid system-wide downtime and ensure secure continuous access to patient data.
With the rise of Docker, Kubernetes, and other container technologies, the growth of microservices has skyrocketed among dev teams looking to innovate on a faster release cycle. This has enabled teams to finally realize their DevOps goals to ship and iterate quickly in a continuous delivery model. Why containers are growing in popularity is no surprise — they’re extremely easy to spin up or down, but come with an unforeseen issue. However, without the right foresight, DevOps and IT teams may lo...

As you know, enterprise IT conversation over the past year have often centered upon the open-source Kubernetes container orchestration system. In fact, Kubernetes has emerged as the key technology -- and even primary platform -- of cloud migrations for a wide variety of organizations. Kubernetes is critical to forward-looking enterprises that continue to push their IT infrastructures toward maximum functionality, scalability, and flexibility. As they do so, IT professionals are also embr...
Kubernetes is a new and revolutionary open-sourced system for managing containers across multiple hosts in a cluster. Ansible is a simple IT automation tool for just about any requirement for reproducible environments. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, Patrick Galbraith, a principal engineer at HPE, will discuss how to build a fully functional Kubernetes cluster on a number of virtual machines or bare-metal hosts. Also included will be a brief demonstration of running a Galer...
DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...
Cloud-Native thinking and Serverless Computing are now the norm in financial services, manufacturing, telco, healthcare, transportation, energy, media, entertainment, retail and other consumer industries, as well as the public sector. The widespread success of cloud computing is driving the DevOps revolution in enterprise IT. Now as never before, development teams must communicate and collaborate in a dynamic, 24/7/365 environment. There is no time to wait for long development cycles that pro...
Docker is sweeping across startups and enterprises alike, changing the way we build and ship applications. It's the most prominent and widely known software container platform, and it's particularly useful for eliminating common challenges when collaborating on code (like the "it works on my machine" phenomenon that most devs know all too well). With Docker, you can run and manage apps side-by-side - in isolated containers - resulting in better compute density. It's something that many developer...
