Transformation, agilitet och Kubernetes i fokus hos Mirantis

Intervju Erik Branten Mirantis

I en serie av intervjuer träffar vår Sales Manager Diego Villaman nyckelpersoner hos våra partners för att höra mer om deras syn på IT-trender, deras strategiska initiativ i Sverige och samarbetet med Conoa. Idag träffar vi Erik Branten, Regional Manager Scandinavia & BeNeLux på Mirantis. Vi satte oss ner för att höra mer om Mirantis planer för året och hur de ser på samarbetet med Conoa. Erik har spenderat mycket tid tillsammans med oss i Sverige, och han har plockat upp väl valda ord på svenska. Men för enkelhetens skull vi tar intervjun på engelska.

What major IT trends will we talk most about this year?
– At Mirantis we help organizations to transform and become more agile. Having the right resources is becoming increasingly difficult. As a company you need to work in the most efficient way with the resources you have. That will mean focus on the key tasks that can differentiate yourself from the competition. As Mirantis we believe more and more conversations will be around offloading certain work..

What will be Mirantis most important strategic investment in the Swedish market in 2022?
– With the fight for talent, companies need to focus on the key differentiators and use their staff for exactly that. We can help our customers blitz-scale their digital initiatives, at a fraction of their  current cost, while giving them maximum flexibility for the future. Together with Conoa we will empower them to use tomorrow’s technology today.

Which products will you focus on 2022 together with Conoa?
– Next to the market leading offerings you already know from Mirantis like MKE (formally known as Docker Enterprise), Lens (most used K8S IDE) and K0s (frictionless K8s), we will be able to run your complete container operations, build you an on-premise cloud and we will be able to build and run your CI/CD pipeline (regardless of the K8s distribution you are using) with guaranteed outcomes.

Give us the elevator pitch for the one of your products or solutions that you think is most useful in an enterprise environment from day 1.
– Most companies are reserving their best people just to keep the infrastructure running. What if we can bring these people right at the application development teams, speeding up your Time to Market. Mirantis can fill the gap and keep your cluster up and running according to best practices (MKE OpsCare plus) and/or help your development team with container security best practices, cost insights and CI/CD pipeline infrastructure (DevOpsCare on ANY k8s distribution).

Where can we find more information about that product?
– You find all info you need at mirantis.com

Anything else you want to tell us while we have you on the line?
– Did you know we have a couple of the largest K8S and OpenStack implementations in both Sweden and the world? Organizations like VISA, PayPal and some large organizations in Scandinavia rely on Mirantis to run their critical workloads on our platform.

Vi tackar Erik för intervjun och ser fram emot att tillsammans med Mirantis fortsätta hjälpa några av Norden största bolag med Kubernetes, och med Swarm, som fortfarande lever i allra högsta grad.
