Job Orchestration Using Microservices: A Ticket to App Modernization (306582)

*Venita Glasfurd, IBM 

Keywords: Data Engineering, Microservices

In a world that is moving to cognitive analytics, there is a need to manage various workflows that are essential to the functioning of an AI solution. What happens behind the scenes to co-ordinate and orchestrate the multitude of jobs that are part of the workflow? How can cloud architectures come to the rescue of building a workflow engine that scales? In this session, you will learn how to model your own microservices and overcome issues faced with monolithic architectures. Recognize how to launch your own “components”, where each component is individually developed, released and deployed. Identify the learnings that unfold as microservices change everything – and nothing at the same time – to get to enterprise class relevance.
