PRO WORKSHOP: WebAssembly: The Future of JS and a Multi-Language Web
80% of users are running browsers capable of running languages other than JS in their browser. It’s a new change, but an important one; we’re looking at a future where the web will be built not just on JS, but on C, Rust, even GoLang. Let’s talk about WebAssembly; why it came about, what it’s good at, and why it really doesn’t spell doom for JS but instead allows you to truly enhance web experiences by augmenting JS with the ability to use modules written in other languages that can perform tasks faster or more efficiently. We’ll go over what WebAssembly is, how to build a WebAssembly module, and why this may be a force that will shape not only how we think about JS, but the entire web experience.

OPEN TALK: Fixing Broken Teams - Gaining Throughput on a Budget
Topic

It is not uncommon for organizations, especially ones in the early-stage to make choices that lead to suboptimal processes and team structures. This type of team tends to produce a large amount of technical debt and once the number of customers and/or the codebase gets large enough, its productivity becomes erratic leading to delivery delays and poor quality output.

This talk will introduce a high-level framework for getting a software team back on the right track, by focusing on execution, quality, and ultimately continuous improvement. A combination of theory and real-world examples will be used to show how a software team can gain throughput by fixing fundamental problems and do so without increasing the budget.

Problem

In order to gain customers, launch quickly into a market, or to get an idea ready for investors it is common to use an ad-hoc process and structure. For those of you that have lived in this world, the mantra is “all hands on deck” and “we all do everything!” This philosophy and behavior is necessary to gain traction in the market quickly, but will ultimately lead to problems down the line.

Once the customer base grows and starts demanding more, and the investments start to increase, the team is again forced into a situation where meeting customer demand is more important than fixing the ad-hoc nature of the process. The resulting natural outcome of this is technical debt. Everyone knows they are willingly creating this debt and the reward is considered great enough to continue down this path.

Fast forward to some point in the future. Revenues are healthy and the customer base is established and is no longer limited to early adopters. What happens next? Almost without notice, the customer mindset shifts from “I’m excited to have this product” to “this product is a critical part of my business”. The result is a new focus on timely delivery and quality.

Study Design

This session focuses on the speaker's personal experience and how that shaped the key concepts presented in the talk. The methodology has been applied in multiple organizations ranging from post-startup, to fortune 500 in size.

Takeaways

The session offers insight and tools that can be applied within an engineering leader’s environment to increase the throughput of their organization. By focusing on setting new cultural values, reducing waste, and making improvements in a disciplined and sensible fashion this can be done without any significant change to the team budget. Getting more for the same amount of effort is the end goal.

PRO SESSION: Microservices in Practice with Ballerina, Kubernetes and Istio
Modern applications that we are building increasingly depends on network endpoints. Whether it is data, SaaS apps, APIs, microservices, serverless functions, everything is becoming programmable endpoints. Integration is the discipline of resilience communication between these endpoints.

Ballerina is a new open source, cloud native programming language that is designed to bring code-first agility to the challenge of integrating across endpoints. The Ballerina language has first-class support for services, distributed transactions, circuit-breakers, stream processing, data-access, JSON, XML, gRPC, and many other integration challenges. It is a compiled, transactional, statically and strongly typed programming language with textual and graphical syntaxes.

Ballerina understands the architecture around it - the compiler is environment aware with microservices directly deployable into infrastructures like Kubernetes and Istio Service Mesh.

This session will explore how Ballerina specializes in writing microservices and deploy into Kubernetes and Istio without written YAMLs and dockerfile.

PRO WORKSHOP: Building Engineering Teams That Last
As companies rapidly mature from early stage to growth phase, they must attract and retain talent to stay competitive. However, as smaller teams morph into larger, more layered divisions, they not only change size – their structure evolves. But these growing teams often add rules, managers, meetings, processes, and policies, all aimed at preventing mistakes rather than capturing the best outcomes.

Will Ballard, CTO of GLG (Gerson Lehrman Group, Inc.), has first-hand experience on building engaged engineering and IT teams in fast-growth companies. Shaped by Will’s philosophy of culture-building as career development, the tech organization at GLG has seen a remarkable <1% turnover while doubling in size.

Join Will in this session for his insights on how to develop teams with retained, productive, and empowered employees. Attendees will learn how to prioritize freedom, responsibility, and self-directed development among line managers and direct reports, by removing constraints, eliminating schedules, and removing the middleman between engineers and customers. With nearly 20 years’ experience as a tech executive, Will offers a seasoned perspective and practical takeaways grounded in best practices.

PRO SESSION: Evergreen Development: Recent Tech Trends and Their Implications
Recent innovations in open source software orchestration tools (e.g. Kubernetes, Terraform), and widespread adoption of the SRE model, have democratized a path for reliable online services. We'll explore what these changes are about, how to take advantage of them, and what this means for the shape of existing and new business in the coming years. We'll discuss a development model called evergreen development, which relies on the capabilities these social and technical tools unlock. Evergreen uses simple, proven, and principled methods to reduce attack surfaces organization-wide. Standardized build pipelines, rapidly building immutable images that are automatically pinned to the latest stable version, can turn dependency drift from a hard-to-manage problem into an expected (and easily managed) exception. By defaulting builds to using the latest available version, security patches are more regularly deployed to production. Since the vast majority of exploits are known ones, this common sense approach can mitigate or prevent a wide variety of attacks. We'll also discuss the non-security aspects of evergreen development, and how those might help pioneer this style of development at your organization.

KEYNOTE: Blackbaud -- Be Brave: Lessons from a Total Technology & Culture Transformation
It’s critical that dev leaders continually inspire and better their teams for continued innovation and excellence. Mary Beth Westmoreland did exactly that when she helped lead process and cultural transformations that allowed for the evolution of Blackbaud’s technology strategy from a lagging, on-premises leader to an agile development model with solutions implemented on Blackbaud SKY®, the company's platform for social good cloud innovation, in just eighteen months.  

Mary Beth’s strategy was driven by the mantra “Be Brave.” She understood that bravery leads to innovation, innovation leads to company success, and company success leads to more company success.

Mary Beth will share the keys to managing dev teams to increased innovation and success, including:
-Creating a “safe” environment for productive disagreement
-Giving teams problems to solve, not solutions to implement
-Creating an environment of autonomy, mastery and purpose
-Celebrating failing fast
-Pivoting quickly

She’ll also share the lessons learned along the way, including:
-Ability for a team to release their bits at the end of a sprint is the #1 fundamental you must nail
-Modularity is your friend: Macro Services, Micro Services, Components/Containers
-Microservices are hard:
*You must invest a tremendous amount of energy into your
SDLS
*Unit testing w/ code coverage
*Automated testing
*Automated deployment
*Dependency management
-Non-Functional Requirements are hard: Find a friend doing it right and leverage their work

PRO WORKSHOP: Deliver Results, Not Just Releases: Control & Observability in CD
How do companies like Netflix, LinkedIn, and booking.com crush it year after year? Yes, they release early and often. Look deeper and you'll find that all of these teams also build in fine-grained control and observability of the payloads passing through their CD pipelines, allowing them to ship faster, with greater safety, while focusing on observable customer impact (results), not just releases.

The lessons learned from early implementations of this approach (known as “shift right testing” or “feature experimentation”) have been published, but not widely read. This talk is a condensed summary of a decade’s worth of those lessons, followed by key takeaways that will equip you to achieve similar benefits in your own environment.

When enterprise AI technology is accessible, more companies can benefit from its uses. One powerful example is the use of AI to transcribe conversations from meetings so team members who aren’t present don’t miss any important information or announcements. Other ways AI is being used to improve communications in and outside of the enterprise sector include sentiment analysis, objet affection, and content moderation.

PRO SESSION: Test-Driving Agility into Software
This session will explore how much time and energy we currently waste when writing software, simply to answer two simple questions:

* "Does my code work?"
* "Did I just break something?"

As we explore these pain-points, Test-Driven Development will emerge as a surprisingly efficient workflow putting us in a position to ship code sooner, more often, on a sustained basis.

Most of us are "surprised" by this, as it just seems very counter-intuitive to write a test before even having written any code. Yet, as we explore this workflow, we start uncovering the efficiencies that we gain, and things become fascinating.

As a result, we will show what it "feels" like to write software that responds to change, as a true sensation of agility emerges, driven not by Scrum, but instead, driven by better code.

OPEN TALK: Centralized Data Management for Distributed Microservices
The deployment flexibility and scalability solutions that are available with a microservices architecture are powerful, but if each microservice manages its own data, how can a non-developer make sense of it all? For some applications, the back office administration of data that drives microservices is an afterthought.

In this presentation, we will discuss how Broadleaf Commerce solved the issue for commerce data administration. Using a set of data management services that in the end allows for microservices to be presented in a uniform admin API using meta-data and a rich component library. Users gain the ability to configure microservices data management into a centralized place!

PRO SESSION: Agile Estimation That Works
That dreaded phrase in engineering…“can you provide me with an estimate?” Many of us engineers cringe at the thought of putting a set number of days on a story or ticket. We all know the downfalls of estimation when tied to a story - bloat of the story to include extraneous additions when it’s overestimated and cutting of corners (think testing) when underestimated. That being said, for the product managers, business owners and product owners having a clear roadmap and sense of timeframe and budget is extremely helpful when trying to map out your strategy for product development. This talk will address some techniques your team can implement to provide estimates that don’t get tied to individual stories. The process implements agile methodologies rather than the waterfall techniques that are often tied to estimation processes. The goal of the talk will be to provide the audience with practices they can bring back to their team that help with transparency in scope and streamlined development. As the COO of a software consultancy based in NYC, I work closely with our clients and the engineering team to map out a process that offers flexibility and transparency. As such we’ve worked to develop a product discovery, estimation process, and re-estimation process that helps to guide each project we’re on.

OPEN TALK: The OS for AI: How Serverless Computing Enables the Next Gen of ML
Machine Learning has been advancing rapidly, but only a few contributors are focusing on the infrastructure and scaling challenges that come with it. When you have thousands of model versions, each written in any mix of frameworks (Python/R/Java/Ruby, PyTorch/SciKit/Caffe/Tensorflow etc), how do you efficiently deploy them as elastic, scalable, secure APIs with 10ms of latency and GPU access?

We’ve built, deployed, and scaled thousands of algorithms and machine learning models, using every kind of framework. We’ve seen many of the challenges faced in this area, and in this talk I’ll share some insights into the problems you’re likely to face, and how to approach solving them.

In brief, we’ll examine the need for, and implementations of, a complete “Operating System for AI”: a common interface for different algorithms to be used and combined, and a general architecture for serverless machine learning which is discoverable, versioned, scalable and sharable.

PRO WORKSHOP: Third Party JavaScript: Or, How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Being Blamed for Everyone Else's Bad Web Design
Third party JavaScript is in many ways the wild west of the internet -- a vast landscape where anything goes and best practices are (unfortunately) just a suggestion. Dealing with polluted globals, overwritten native API's, woefully unoptimized scripts, unscrupulous CSS rules, and competition for every last resource are just some of the issues you can run into when your code is designed to be integrated into others' websites. With the right tools, however, anyone can become a confident citizen of this lawless landscape and make sure that their code is insulated, self-sufficient, performant, and resistant to even the worst technical contexts the internet can conjure up. Whether you're a front or back end engineer, and whether your code is designed to run on pages you can't control or you're an architect of your own sites, this talk will help you learn how to be a responsible developer and build a better internet.

PRO SESSION: ServiceMesh - the Endgame of Microservice Implementation Nightmare
Microservices architecture (MSA) has been widely adopted in recent years due to its significant benefits. However, it is equally important to build services that can isolate failures, self-healing, secure service-service communication along with improved tracing and monitoring capabilities. Imagine the effort required to enable these features for dozens of microservice (small application) and hundreds of microservice (enterprise-grade application), it is a humongous effort.

In this talk, Service mesh concept is covered that details how to abstract routing, security and observability implementation from individual services and make it part of a dedicated infrastructure layer. Further, the session explores an open source, cloud agnostic, batteries-included service mesh implementation named Istio. With Istio, we demonstrate how microservice can leverage built-in routing capabilities (circuit-breaker, retry, fault injection, blue-green and canary deployment), securing service communication via access controls and in-depth telemetry support for metrics, monitoring and traces with real application use cases. At last, quick recap of service mesh implementations, its maturity and industry adoption will be shared.

PRO SESSION: Why Traditional Developer Onboarding Is Failing Us and How We Can Improve It
As a consulting Product Manager, I have watched many software teams succeed and fail, and have spent a good portion of my recent career trying to understand the factors that contribute to each outcome. One of my biggest breakthroughs in creating happy and successful software teams was to dedicate more time to thoughtful, product and user onboarding for developers. Companies tend to onboard developers based on a stereotype— the hyper-logical, introverted, individual who’s ideal day is one where they sit at a computer and write as much code as possible. However, optimizing towards getting individuals shipping code as quickly as possible does a great disservice to our products and teams.  In this talk I will discuss (a) How we traditionally onboard developers based on a stereotypical idea of what they want and need out of their jobs, (b) Specific tactics for inserting empathy and context into the developer onboarding experience, and lastly (c) how this benefits both our products and teams.

PRO WORKSHOP: Radical Meetings: Liberating Structures for Engineering Teams
Liberating Structures is a growing collection of 33+ alternative frameworks for facilitating meetings, conversations, and gatherings.  Professional facilitators use these as a more inclusive, engaging, and fun alternative to the usual ‘microstructures’ that define most of our gatherings in the workplace: presentations, managed discussions, status reports, open discussions, and brainstorming.  By removing the constraints imposed on potential contributors  by these various microstructures and adding novel lanes of participation, Liberating Structures empower teams to discover, ideate, and discuss important problems in new ways. In this talk, we’ll learn about (and practice) a few frameworks that can breathe new life to the usual menu of sprint rituals.  Attendees will walk away inspired to increase inclusion, engage team members, and build shared clarity around problems while having fun.

FEATURED PRO SESSION: Building Enterprise Grade, High Transaction Rate, Resilient APIs
This presentation takes you through the Journey of API Lifecycle, covering the following topics- Evolution, Backward Compatibility, Monitoring and Transformation of APIs. It comes from a first hand experience of building an API stack that a multi billion dollar enterprise bets on.

APIs built around your company's core business functionality will last forever. Customers who have integrated with the legacy XML / SOAP APIs usually do not invest in new integration unless they want new features. On the other hand, you as an API Producer need to stay on top of technology to attract and ease the new developer integration. You need to keep up with latest technology in all areas including error handling, security, and API protocols such as Restful and JSON. You may have to maintain different flavors of the APIs to keep both existing and new customers happy. But at the same time you have to keep in mind the cost of maintenance of the multiple flavor APIs and need to prevent duplicate code by building the protocol/security layer on top of the common code. This presentation talks about the evolution of the APIs with examples of supporting multiple protocol APIs.

When your company's core business APIs are integrated by large and critical customer base, it is crucial to be sensitive and backward compatible to customer's integration as the new features get rolled out. This talk covers in detail, the approach towards backward compatibility of an API with respect to changes to request, changes to response and changes to validation rules / business logic. In this presentation we will extensively dive into the different backward compatibility strategy that can be applied to REST / JSON , SOAP and plain XML APIs and examine the differences.

When your APIs are serving around half a billion transactions per day, providing a gateway to your company's core business, it is very critical to extensively monitor your APIs and be proactive about all production issues. You can not lose your APIs even for a fraction of a minute. This talk covers the challenges of monitoring and how you can develop a robust monitoring approach for the APIS. We will also dive into the journey of transformation of API development into the world of agile, DevOps and containerization - all being seamless in continuing to serve millions of customer transactions.

The most important thing I’ve learned as a professional developer is how to write easy-to-test code, and code is easy to test when you break up complex pieces into smaller units. Now what happens if we break up complicated services the same way we break up complicated blocks of code? Let’s take what makes code easy to unit test and apply it to service design.

Whether you want to accelerate time to market, reduce bugs, or make it easier to add features and iterate -- with the Reconciliation Pattern (used by Kubernetes and React) I’ll show you how you can break up complex workloads into smaller easy to test pieces at the services layer & walk you through a real-world example of how we’ve successfully deployed this pattern for services at WP Engine.

API & Microservices
The future of applications is collaborative, intelligent, autonomous and stateful. So why are we still building stateless, request-driven REST applications? This session presents a new model for building scalable, autonomous applications using stateful Web Agents and streaming APIs.

In order to conquer the massive volumes of streaming data being created at the edge, it’s critical to build applications which are optimized for learning and deriving insights locally, without relying on the cloud. Using Swim, developers and data scientists can build and analyze stateful models of the real-world, enabling applications to analyze, learn and deliver insights from data streams.

Stateful Web Agents make it possible to build models of even the most complex real-world systems from streaming data.  Essentially, a model is a distributed graph of concurrent web agents – each acting as a stateful “digital twin” that processes streaming data from a real-world source.  Web agents link to one another to represent relationships discovered in the data, enabling them to share state and collaborate to compute insights. Web agents stream their outputs to users and applications in real-time.

Web agents help solve challenges of model building, data reduction, cleaning and labeling, analysis, learning and prediction: They continuously process streaming data, update their state, compute and stream insights over their links, making the graph a live, stateful, computational model. This enables developers and data scientists to run Machine Learning libraries on top of streaming data to identify real-time insights and self-train models on-the-fly. The Swim library and several example applications are available as open source software, maintained by the Swim community. Come see how easy it is to build ultra-low latency, massively distributed streaming applications without ever depending on a database, message broker or app server.

OPEN TALK: Log Better
Abstract
Sure, we’re told actionable, parsable logs are important. But what does that mean? How has that guidance changed? Experiment with different log formats, see how machines parse logs, and discuss best practices for logging. After all, a good log helps the next person, and that might even be you.
Description
Logging is deceptively simple. You import a library, pass strings to it, and BAM you have logs. However, do you know how to write machine-parsable logs? Do you know all of the different log levels and why you need them? What does current logging best practices look like? Logging is an underutilized tool in the developer’s toolbox, and it is often misunderstood as just another unnecessary debugging tool. In reality, logging is a boon to the people who will be working on a system later down the line, and making fantastic logs really is a team sport.
For the hands-on portions of this workshop, we’ll learn and practice writing good logs, and we’ll view our practice logs. We’ll see how different logs appear in a parsing system, and we’ll experiment with different formats. Finally, we’ll see how to translate those best practices into code with a basic hello-world Python application. You just need a laptop, a terminal of some sort (anything from basic terminal to Powershell is fine), and the ability to connect to the conference wifi.
Note: You do not need to buy into LogDNA for this workshop; I just happen to work there :)

The Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) is the most widely used blockchain smart contract execution engine. It is core to the Ethereum protocol, which is now a $20 billion dollar ecosystem. From the developer point of view, the EVM enables cloud-native microservices on decentralized networks in the form of smart contract applications. The next generation of EVM is going to be based on the WebAssembly runtime, which supports mainstream programming languages and compile time / runtime optimizations. The next-gen EVM benefits the WebAssembly community, as it brings in many blockchain innovations, such as deterministic behavior, trustless consensus, digital currency infrastructure, formal verification, and zero knowledge computing. Subsequently, WebAssembly is positioned to become a popular execution engine for microservices in enterprise data centers, partially replacing the JVM, the JS VM, and containers like Docker.

In this talk, we will discuss the current state and future plans of the EVM and WebAssembly. We will give a live demo to show how you can deploy a decentralized microservice and a web frontend in 5 minutes. We will then discuss the future of the EVM and WebAssembly in enterprise IT.

PRO SESSION: AI to Drive Intelligent Customer Interactions & Reach Your Contact Center's Full Potential
With each new year, artificial intelligence (AI) creeps higher on enterprises’ list of priorities, thanks to the promise of many benefits such as automating processes and enhancing the customer experience with more intelligent interactions. Certainly, with AI, the types of digital transformation that seemed too far-fetched or futuristic just a few years ago are within reach today. It’s becoming clear that communications is at the core of business’ digital transformation, and programmable technology is the key. Programmability offers the flexibility and agility needed to enable the implementation of intelligent communications tools, customized to meet the individual needs of each business and their employees. To meet this growing need for tools that enable digital transformation, providers must innovate to offer enterprises unprecedented capabilities to customize their business communications applications. In this presentation, Peter Fabian at Vonage, will discuss how enterprises with limited machine learning expertise can leverage simple, secure and flexible solutions to deploy intelligent solutions in their contact centers. He’ll demonstrate in real time how true programmability has the power to enhance UC and contact center applications, allowing enterprises to adapt to customer demands and generate new insights to better serve and delight customers, improving the overall customer journey. By enabling AI-based tools, such as programmable building blocks, chatbots, open source skills-based routing, and real-time sentiment analysis, intelligent communications are helping companies to completely transform the way they communicate, how they operate, and how they connect with customers.

OPEN TALK: How Developers Can Become the New Roboticists
The world of robots has been dominated by a tiny group of people called roboticists. These minds are the only ones that have been able to leverage robots to solve problems either in the home or at work. That is, until now. Misty Robotics is developing a first-of-its-kind programmable robot to "democratize" robots-- move them out of the world of "roboticist" and into the world of "Javascript and Python," so developers can invent thousands of applicable skills for everyday life.

In this session, Chris Meyer, Head of Community Experience at Misty Robotics, will explore how the future of robotics begins with a developer platform and what it will take to get there. He will share some topics that Misty’s community of developers are currently exploring in-depth, including personality and autonomous AI.

PRO SESSION: What's Possible with Twilio... Build the Perfect Communication Experience into Your Application
Many IVRs expect too much from customers—they lack customizability and require your customers to patiently learn how to use the IVR. What if you could replace this with a natural conversational IVR? What if you could add security and personalized customer data and deploy this using multiple channels? We'll show you how to build the perfect IVR for your business using Twilio Studio and Autopilot.

In VR content is king. Volumetric video is a solution to get photo realistic people, objects, and environments into immersive experience for a profound psychological effect on users. The currently data transfer methods have slow processing and turn around times, but with 5G this can be sped up especially for transfer and onsite testing of mobile rigs. This makes volumetric content creation more attainable.

PRO WORKSHOP: Infrastructure as Code (IAC) Workshop
The idea behind infrastructure as code (IAC) is that you write and execute code to define, deploy, and update your infrastructure. This represents an important shift in mindset where you treat all aspects of operations as software—even those aspects that represent hardware (e.g., setting up physical servers).

Goals of this workshop:


- learn about general information on Infrastructure as Code (IAC)
- hands-on workshop using terraform v0.12 with Introductory to AWS cloud services

Please read instructions on https://bit.ly/2BUZtIV GitHub to set up your machine before the workshop.

PRO SESSION: Operationalizing AI for the Enterprise
Businesses today are struggling to make sense of the vast amounts of data and business signals that surround them. They have too much data and too little insight, have poor linkage between industry-specific insights discovery and business action, and scarce learnings from actions taken.

In this session, Matt Sanchez, Founder and CTO of CognitiveScale -- a company that was recently named a 2018 Technology Pioneer by the World Economic Forum -- will discuss how software development teams can be more agile and bring business experts deeper into the development of more repeatable AI tooling and methods. He will also explain how to radically simplify the AI lifecycle by bridging the gaps between data science workflows and software systems development workflows. Ultimately, this will allow for AI systems to be deployed across the enterprise in a more practical, scalable and responsible manner to increase revenues, drive new efficiencies and accelerate time to business value.

PRO SESSION: Facing the Challenges of Hiring, Innovation, and Collaboration as a VC-Backed Startup
In the past two years, Cover's engineering team has grown from a single person to over 30 people.  Anand Dhillon (Cover's CTO and co-founder) knows better than anyone the challenges that come along with scaling a VC-backed business, but he has narrowed down some best practices for the following: intentional hiring, for both skill and culture fit; fostering collaboration across all teams (sales, marketing, product, design, etc.); and encouraging innovation by prioritizing continuous learning by emphasizing the value of trial and error.

This session will discuss these best practices in depth, and allow the audience to learn from Anand's wealth of experience as a startup founder, skilled engineer and team leader.

PRO SESSION: High Availability Horror Stories and How to Avoid Them with MongoDB
True tales of tribulations and tragedy from the industry front lines. Learn about common mistakes and less obvious pitfalls with serious consequences. We will share what we have learned from being the data platform of choice of some of the world’s most data-intensive applications. We have been there, seen it ALL, and have the JIRAs to prove it!

Have you sharded too early? Or too late?
Is poor (or lack of) schema design driving up your IOPS costs and killing performance?
Are slow reads costing you customers?
Has lack of serverless led you to overprovision or worse - underprovision?

In this talk, we will offer you strategies and considerations for before you deploy, as well as advice for maintaining robust, rapidly scalable applications. Even if you are already teetering on the edge of an availability abyss, don’t despair. We also offer last minute lifelines to save the day.

PRO WORKSHOP: Antipatterns in Scaling Enterprise AI
Enterprises are clamoring to implement AI strategies, recognizing the multi-billion dollar impact that a successful implementation could have on their business. Yet, the value being delivered from expensive AI investments is falling just about as quickly as AI is falling off the infamous Hype Cycle cliff (Gartner). With Enterprise AI spending about to double in the next 2 years to over $50B, it is critical to develop the culture, processes, and infrastructure that will allow your AI strategy to thrive. In this talk, Molecula’s Director of Product, Sarah King, will discuss 5 antipatterns to consider when implementing your Enterprise AI strategy in order to maximize the value delivered from your investment.
