Addressing Critical Shortcomings of ETL Tools for Better Data Analytics
Addressing Critical Shortcomings of ETL Tools for Better Data Analytics

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.

Extract, transform and load (ETL) tools like AWC Glue bring much needed functionality. This tool enables new approaches to pulling, processing and pushing data from source to target, and introduces concepts such as performing data transformation tasks using SparkSQL scripts in Apache spark environment. However, there are shortcomings with AWS Glue, leading to a number of challenges and questions:

Where are the necessary coding techniques when it comes to dealing with specific data types and many such technical aspects of traditional ETL tools?

How can data analysts rely on the Glue-Dynamic frame concept for some of the key design aspects when it comes to incremental loads design and data conversion process?

How can accurate reporting be achieved when the data processing step truncates decimals points, creating huge data discrepancies?

At Infostretch, we believe these challenges can be handled by utilizing specific database level functions. In this session, we will showcase real-life experience with such deal-breaking scenarios, and demonstrate how to mitigate these issues without jeopardizing reporting accuracy, compromising on quality, or endlessly waiting for new releases.

Attendees will learn how to overcome the critical shortcomings of the AWS Glue ETL tool to achieve success:

How to use specific database level functions without jeopardizing quality

Address issue of truncating decimals to produce accurate reports

Ensure source system KPIs match up with target system KPIs for complete business insights.

Cloud Native Programming with Docker, Kubernetes, and Ballerina
Cloud Native Programming with Docker, Kubernetes, and Ballerina

Docker and Kubernetes are key elements of modern cloud native deployment automations. After building your microservices, common practice is to create docker images and create YAML files to automate the deployment with Docker and Kubernetes. Writing these YAMLs, Dockerfile descriptors are really painful and error prone.Ballerina is a new cloud-native programing language which understands the architecture around it - the compiler is environment aware of microservices directly deployable into infrastructures like Docker and Kubernetes.

This session will explore Ballerina features, development, and deployment automation by deploy microservice into Kubernetes without written YAMLs and dockerfile

Microservice Forensics: Investigating Problems in Production
Microservice Forensics: Investigating Problems in Production

When you’re operating multiple services in production, building out forensics tools such as monitoring and observability becomes essential. Unfortunately, it is a real challenge balancing priorities between building new features and tools to help pinpoint root causes. Linkerd provides many of the tools you need to tame the chaos of operating microservices in a cloud native world.

Because Linkerd is a transparent proxy that runs alongside your application, there are no code changes required. It even comes with Prometheus to store the metrics for you and pre-built Grafana dashboards to show exactly what is important for your services - success rate, latency, and throughput.

In this session, we’ll explain what Linkerd provides for you, demo the installation of Linkerd on Kubernetes and debug a real world problem. We will also dig into what functionality you can build on top of the tools provided by Linkerd such as alerting and autoscaling.

Should You Go ‘Serverless’? The Pros and Cons
Should You Go ‘Serverless’? The Pros and Cons

In this presentation, to setup the context I will start with introducing what is Serverless architecture and how it is different from the way we were using cloud in the past, how serverless offerings from various cloud providers is positioned to become the most used service of these providers going forward in the coming years.

Then I will be talking about the Pros & Cons of Serverless architecture and which application use cases types are ideal for taking full advantages of Serverless from my practical experience using serverless architecture in products which we developed for some of our big client in last couple of years. I will be further talking about Pros & Cons of going Serverless from business, developers and user’s perspective.

My presentation will be an interactive session of aprox. 30 min’s (based on available time). The use-cases I am taking in this presentation is a very common one to make sure that I connect with the audience very well and which will result in a very positive Q&A session that can be limited to next 5 to 10 in’s based on the availability of time. The audience will able to learn what is Serverless Architecture, its Pros & Cons and in which use cases they should adopt serverless approach and be empowered to make an informed choice while starting a new product development project.

Knative in the Developer's Serverless Life
Knative in the Developer's Serverless Life

Knative allows developers not only to address the challenges of using managed services, but also they can jump into the serverless world easier without specific expertise of Linux containers, Kubernetes, or cloud infrastructure platform. But what does this really look like if you're, say, a Java developer? What's the full developer experience?In this session, I will walk you through the beauty of Knative, via a live demo, in terms of developing the modern app on Spring Boot, building Linux containers, deploying it superfast, and scaling down to zero automatically along with workloads. In the end, you will feel better how cool Knative is for developers to make it more comfortable, easier, and quicker to run serverless cloud-native apps.

Monitoring Kubernetes vs. Serverless-Based Applications
Monitoring Kubernetes vs. Serverless-Based Applications

The software we write does not always work as smoothly as we would like. In order to know if something went wrong, understand the root cause and fix the problem, we need to monitor our system and get alerts whenever issues pop up. There are many useful tools and practices for Kubernetes based applications. As we adopt serverless architecture can we continue to use the same practice? Unfortunately, the answer is no.

In this session, we will discuss:
- The differences between monitoring Kubernetes and serverless based applications
- Best practices for serverless monitoring
- Methods to efficiently troubleshoot serverless based applications

Join our session and start enjoying the great benefits of serverless computing.
