Join us for a brief history of innovation through the lens of IT development and how that history has led to Containerization. Along the journey, we will explore key systems challenges from 20 years ago and the challenges of today: How are these different and what is similar? What is the value of Containerization to Government agencies? Learn why Container adoption is increasing quickly due to the efficiencies it creates and the innovation it enables. Our discussion will conclude with a few examples of why and how organizations are using Containers today.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Discuss the practical application of Containers within their organization.
  2. Share value and impact of Containerization throughout an Organization
  3. Identify a value case for Containers.
