AZConf, known as the A-to-Z Conference, is a common platform where visionary speakers and tech enthusiasts globally unite. With a mission to explore, educate, and envision the future of technology, this conference zeroes in on two domains: Cloud Computing and Generative AI. This event serves as a common ground for tech aficionados, providing a nexus to connect, exchange ideas, gain insights, and foster collaboration.
This year’s edition of AZConf unfolded took place on 17th and 18th November at IIT Madras Research Park in Chennai. The opening note, by Ilyas F, the Senior Technical Program, set the stage for a journey into the forefront. Vanitha Venugopal, the CEO of iTNT Hub & Head of Incubation, took the stage with a keynote.
A group of enthusiastic techies from Suyati Technologies actively participated in this grand assembly, marking their presence in Asia’s Largest Cloud and AI conference. The first day delved into crucial topics like the Evolution of Cloud Native Architecture with GenAI, Empowering Bharat’s E-commerce Landscape with AI, Architecture Patterns for Gen AI Applications, Considerations for LLMOps, and Pushing the Limits of Generative AI using Azure OpenAI for Retail Store Planogram Design.
The second day started off with a warm welcome by Karthikeyan VK, CTO, PROIndia, and a keynote by Sivarajah Ramanathan, Mission Director & CEO at Tamil Nadu Startup and Innovation Mission. Sivarajah’s call to connect dots for innovation, inspired by the legendary Steve Jobs, resonated deeply, emphasizing the transformation from digital slaves to digital masters. Deepak Rajendran, Influencer Programs Lead at Microsoft, delivered closing note of the entire event.
In a session titled ‘Accelerating Digital Transformation using Cloud & AI,’ various strategies such as microservices, event-driven architecture, low-code platforms, and LLMs were discussed as means to expedite digital transformation. Simultaneously, the session on ‘Architecting Multi-Cloud Ready Applications’ provided insights into designing cloud-native applications using Azure offerings, ensuring adaptability across multiple cloud environments. Another session, ‘Build Event Driven Architectures on AWS,’ explored the concept of event-driven architectures and AWS services to build resilient distributed applications.
