Session Name: Kubernetes at Wiley - the first year
"Provisioning the first Kubernetes cluster is easy, but adopting it as a platform in the cloud in a global enterprise that tries simultaneously to become agile while migrating to the cloud and making its first steps with containers might be a challenge.
Working with global teams coming from different cultural backgrounds compounds the challenge. This is a journey of patience, empathy, education and transformation where fundamental questions like who owns the infrastructure needed to be answered first before more complex challenges could be tackled - frequent daily deployments, HA Service Meshes on k8s, CI/CD on k8s, Data Analytics on k8s, Monitoring platforms on k8s etc.,
Every organization has a different experience, but Wiley's path could be described as Infra-as-code came first, followed by collaboration over Git workflows, and innovation arriving eventually by empowered individuals and teams."
