SKILup Hour:

CI/CD – Rearchitecting for Distributed Computing

SKILup Hours: Educational Webinars for IT Professionals include roundtable discussions that are moderated by industry experts; providing discrete buildable how-to knowledge on topics crossing people, process and technology.

System architectures traditionally followed monolithic patterns but more recently have advanced to patterns that distribute applications in smaller pieces, ie. microservices. These enable teams to build, test and deploy changes at higher velocities especially when using continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD). These loosely coupled systems have more autonomy and fewer dependencies making them more stable and yet they are inherently more complex so require additional management and maintenance techniques and tools.

Join our experts for this SKILup Hour to learn about how to rearchitect your monolithic applications for distributed computing and CI/CD to reach higher software delivery and operations performance.











What Will You


  1. How to rearchitect a monolithic application using distributed computing patterns
  2. How to build a CI/CD pipeline and DevOps toolchains to test and deploy changes in your loosely coupled systems
  3. Why moving to a distributed computing environment will increase complexity and how to use automation to reduce management overheads

Who Should


CIOs, Cloud Architects, Site Reliability Engineers, Platform Engineers, Heads of IT Operations, DevOps and Engineering Leaders, Developers, IT Operations Engineers, Support Analysts, and Release Engineers.
