Modernising Change for Speed and Scale with Confluent and Kong

Modern applications and platforms espouse the benefits of simplification, scale, and improved cost efficiencies, but often organisations face the challenge in managing significant increases in change volume and the associated cost of this change.

Change is HARD and COMPLEX! Monolithic-scale changes are viewed as a thing of the past, but often are still required with legacy applications and systems. In today’s rapidly changing world, 18-months is often seen as too old and legacy! Modern approaches to application development and platform delivery aim to reduce complexity and simplify change, but the pace of change often results in a higher overall cost of change if your ability to deliver and consume change is unable to keep up with demand.

Effortless and frictionless access to Data and Information is paramount to ensure change can be consumed and delivered at speed. The ability to interact, manipulate, and shape Data, and secure and control actors who interact with my Data are critical in enabling organisations deliver change at speed and scale.
