DevSum 2024

I am speaking at DevSum 2024 in Stockholm on May 16-17, 2024.

My session this time is a “lessons learned” topic, and I am very excited to talk about it. Currently, I am helping public sector customers with their approach to cloud. There are, as I am sure you expect multiple interesting challenges with moving something of this size, this heavily regulated, and with considerable legacy IT and applications. It is challenging and rewarding to be a part of large transformation stories and there are many things to consider in public sector that are not of equal importance in the private sector.


DevSum has a 20th anniversary this year, which is an impressive feat by Cornerstone the organizer. The conference is always very well organized and it draws a big crowd from near and far. The speaker lineup this year is, as every year, excellent! It will be an awesome show!


My session: Lessons learned from public sector cloud implementations

“It is time to talk about the specific challenges on the cloudy road ahead! It may feel intimidating, daunting, with a real risk of missing the target or not gaining the full benefit of the cloud-move. The cloud promises; Agile/fast, secure, compliant, and pay-per-use. Not to mention all those new AI services – they are all in the cloud. No cloud, no AI!

Right now, the Swedish public sector is in fact moving to the cloud. For many years, the situation was rather locked by compliance, security, and data sovereignty matters.

Over a decade after the introduction of cloud computing, the public sector in Sweden is finally beginning to migrate services that contain citizen data and/or are classified as nationally critical infrastructure to the cloud.

Among the challenges associated with adopting a cloud approach are governance, managing partner and supplier relationships, ensuring security and compliance, transitioning skills, planning for change, and developing a proper strategy. Attend this session for a run-down of the bold steps that will set you on a straighter path directly to the cloud!”
