Innovation Brunch: Application modernization in the age of AI and cloud

Tuesday, 25 June 2024

8:30 - 13:30

Art & Event Gallery Černá Labuť, Na Poříčí 1067, Praha 1

Let us cordially invite you to an event hosted by our member Etnetera Group, during which you will find out how to modernize existing applications by moving them to the cloud, rewriting them to new technologies, or redesigning them using modern technologies.

Come see how to identify and most importantly implement the required update using Microsoft Azure, AI and other modern trends. We will share practical successful customer experiences and discuss the economics of using FinOps.

Etnetera Group is a family of technological and creative companies working together under one roof in Prague, Czech Republic. They are guiding companies in their digital transformation.


Please note that the event will be held in the Czech and Slovak languages.


1. How to identify potential and design a path to modernisation

The journey to a modernized system involves not only upgrading to new technologies, but also a new IT architecture, optimizing functionalities and integrating with modern digital tools. This process can include migrating to the cloud, moving to microservices, or leveraging AI and machine learning to improve application performance.We will also demonstrate Microsoft Cast, a tool that addresses application readiness for modernization or migration to the cloud.

2. Design system: efficient design and development of applications

Global data shows that successful players, from large corporations to start-ups, can effectively maintain and enhance their products through design systems, without visual identity consistency issues. It also saves significant costs over time for potential redesigns. We'll show why you should also invest in a design system and how to get started with it even in the case of a greenfield project without a big investment in the form of a demo of Etnetera's Design System Kit (EDS kit for short).

Michal Měcháček, Etnetera Flow

3. Artificial intelligence as a helping hand for modernisation

A live demonstration of how to talk to your own data using AI in an app that can be built and deployed in minutes.

Peter Valuš, Microsoft

4. AI case study: automated video translations in MS Azure

Applying AI in MS Azure in practice. Together, we will look at how a service for video translations, running large language models with compliance in mind, and a smart querying system over custom data (RAG) can be implemented in Azure.

Matouš Jezerský, Etnetera Activate

5. Success in practice: case study of e-shop

Challenges, experiences and unexpected benefits that can bring complex modernization and moving from on-premise solutions to the cloud.

Ondřej Levý, Etnetera Core

6. Observability

In the cloud, it's easy to lose track of what's going on in an application at first. Observability is a way to keep an overview, get information in one place and "observe". We'll show you what you can see, how to arrange alerting (reporting problems), and as a bonus include the users' view: how fast everything is running for them, or how many errors they've encountered.

Martin Kačer, Etnetera Core

7. Financial optimization with MS Azure: FinOps in action

Mastering the discipline of FinOps in your organization. How to do it and why it delivers much more than just cost savings to customers.

Jindřich Jašek & Daniel Jasník, Microsoft
