“Most enterprises find their technology strategy is now their business strategy. They must provide compelling digital services to attract and retain customers. Enterprises are looking to microservices to develop the applications that underpin these services. But most struggle to find the right balance of development and delivery across a mix of legacy, monolithic applications and newer, open-sourced based microservices environments,” said Rob Whiteley, CMO of NGINX, Inc. “At NGINX Conf 2018, all sessions are geared toward helping attendees identify where they are — and more importantly where they should be — along each step of this journey and how NGINX’s technology help achieve success.”
