    Step 2.5 on the cloud adoption process
    10:50 - 11:30

    Step 1 on the cloud adoption process is easy – make the decision to take cloud seriously. At first step 2 seems fairly easy as well, as you start to move the low-hanging fruit and easy workloads to cloud – but pretty soon you either run out of simple targets, or just realise that you are not making enough impact to really make a difference. What then?
    1. How WTW decided to accelerate the cloud process so that it really started to make a difference – the Cloud Sprint
    2. The roadblocks and challenges that were encountered
    3. The initial results

    Using Docker to Modernize Traditional (Legacy) Apps
    14:10 - 14:50

    Earlier in the year, Docker announced the Modernize Traditional Applications (MTA) Program to help enterprises make their existing legacy apps more secure, more efficient and portable to hybrid cloud infrastructure. This session covers the importance of “WHY NOW and HOW” to start modernizing traditional applications with Docker Enterprise Edition. Legacy applications often serve critical business needs and have to be maintained for a long time. The maintenance of these applications can become expensive and very time consuming. Some applications may have been written decades ago, grown to millions of lines of code  and the team that built and deployed the app may no longer be at your company. That can pose a challenge for app maintenance, security and support. Docker Enterprise Edition and the Image2Docker Tool presents a unique opportunity to modernize these apps into containers to make them portable, more secure and cost efficient to operate
