AWS & Kong Immersion Day – Hands-On Workshop

Digital transformation is built on APIs. Financial organizations use APIs to modernize access to legacy systems, liberate siloed data, and break down monolithic applications into smaller, easier to manage components in order to rapidly increase their pace of innovation and deliver new digital experiences. Paramount to successful modernization is an API-first strategy that leverages cloud-native technologies to achieve security, automation, and performance at scale.

In this Hands-On workshop, Eric Baran, Principal Sales Leader – DevOps – Global Financial Services at AWS, Sanjay Dandeker, Principal Solutions Architect – Global Financial Services at AWS, and Greg Peranich, Sr. Solutions Engineer at Kong will demonstrate the ways Konnect can help your organization adopt a federated API management model throughout their lifecycle, and show how the API Gateway pattern can be used for modernization with Kong to:

  • Refactor-Ready Migrations - Break down monoliths into services or build new applications with distributed architectures to accelerate your journey to the cloud, microservices, Kubernetes, and service mesh.
  • Secure and Govern APIs and Services - Provide consistent security, governance, and compliance across APIs and services.
  • Comprehensive View of Consumption Patterns for Developers - Provide an internal developer platform based on reusable deployment models.

Come and see why top financial organizations like Vanguard and ANZ have chosen Kong for their full-lifecycle API Management needs.

Attendees will follow the AWS Setup, Kong Konnect, Kong Konnect Service Hub, Kong Konnect Runtime Manager, Kong Plugins, and Monitoring.

*This workshop requires a free trial Kong Konnect Plus subscription and an AWS account where there is an IAM user/identity that has proper permissions to set up the necessary AWS components to work through the workshop, as well as introductory knowledge in Kubernetes. The facilitators will provide temporary AWS accounts to be used for the duration of the workshop, so that attendees can get hands-on experience. The facilitators will also walk attendees through Kong Konnect sign up.
