Sheraton Pittsburgh - Pittsburgh, PA

SoftServe is proudly sponsoring and speaking at the annual SEI Architecture Technology User Network Conference (SATURN).

The SATURN conference brings together an international audience of software architects, industry thought leaders, developers, technical managers, and researchers. The goal of the conference is for these professionals to share ideas, insights, and experiences about effective architecture-centric practices for developing and maintaining software-intensive systems.



Tuesday, May 7, 4:00—4:30pm

Legacy to Cloud-Native Modernization in GCP

Speaker: Andriy Shapochka

Wednesday, May 8, 4:45—6:15pm

Smart Decisions: An Architecture Design Game for IoT Solutions

During this session, SoftServe will introduce and demonstrate ‘Smart Decisions for IoT’, a game that simulates the architecture design process of a solution in the Internet of Things (IoT) domain. The game is inspired by Attribute-Driven Design (ADD), and previous versions of the game in the big data and machine learning (ML) domains. Players learn to apply the ‘Smart Decision’ approach to architecture design while they get more familiar with architectural considerations for IoT system design.

Speakers: Yaroslav Pidstryhach, Serge Haziyev, Rick Kazman, and Shaun Green

Thursday, May 9, 1:00—1:45pm

Architecting to Support Machine Learning

This discussion will address the need for architecture to support ML, from a theoretical and practical point of view. Our goal is to help software architects to design systems that support ML. This is done by identifying common architecture design considerations for various phases of data processing, training, and model serving.

Speakers: Iurii Milovanov, Rick Kazman, and Humberto Cervantes
