The IAM role chaos: The pitfalls of setting up access management in the cloud
Marion Bruns, Software Developer, ThoughtWorks Germany
Public cloud providers offer comprehensive IAM tools, which enables you to easily define and apply granular access permissions to entities and resources in the cloud. In spite of these tools access management can become complex as soon the number of systems and the infrastructure are growing and cross-functional teams take over accountability for implementing and delivering services alongside their infrastructure. How to organise access control? How to manage access permissions for deployment pipelines for services and infrastructure code? There is not one concept for access management, but there are measures and tools to avoid running into a mess, which is almost impossible to refactor.

Infrastructure as product: Commoditising the cloud with platform thinking
Max Griffiths, Infrastructure Consultant, ThoughtWorks UK
Public cloud offerings have become large and complex, and keeping ahead for them means pushing out more features than the competition. Over time this has led to a vast array of options for consumers to decipher: companies, engineering teams, and solo app developers alike need to build more expertise whilst attempting to achieve the benefits cloud promises. A common step is to put a team around it, but a DevOps team is widely regarded as an anti-pattern. Is a Platform Engineering team different? Over the last 15 years Max has helped organisations large and small make decisions that maximise the benefits of public cloud. Investing in public cloud means more than just migrating from on-premise. By drawing on patterns from platform building, Developer Experience, Conway's Law, and product focused teams, this talk will provide some examples of guardrails that keep you successful whilst on your cloud adoption journey.
