To thrive in the digital era, businesses must act on opportunities and solve problems more quickly than ever before. They must innovate relentlessly and respond to customers, partners, and employees at light speed. Agility is the name of the game.
Increasingly, applications are the vehicles through which critical needs are addressed, and in this digital economy the key to increasing business agility is no secret: enterprises must deliver applications faster.
Winning businesses today are taking a new, cloud native approach to application delivery that involves:
- Packaging code in portable and efficient containers
- Embracing iterative and integrated agile and DevOps practices
- Implementing flexible, evolvable microservice-based application architectures
- Leveraging powerful application automation platforms, such as Kubernetes and Cloud Foundry
- Deploying to an open and flexible software-defined infrastructure
The results are truly astounding: as cycle times shrink, innovation accelerates, course corrections are made faster, new capabilities arrive sooner. Business succeeds.
