IBM and Maersk: Secure, Scalable, AI-Ready Containers

Cloud Platform and Hosting

Join Jason McGee (IBM Fellow, VP, and CTO) and our featured customer Maersk discussing how they modernized Maersk's business with IBM Cloud Container Service. In this keynote, Jason brings his know-how about enterprises: their legacy needs and their future journey, encompassing security, simplified management, and interoperable environments. You'll learn from Maersk how they modernized onto the cloud and also extended their value, using Docker containers, microservices, and Kubernetes. Jason's demo shows the modernization of a traditional Java app onto public cloud containers and goes one step more—to extend that Java app with AI APIs.
