Today’s most disruptive companies are using a new breed of business applications—cloud-native applications—to differentiate themselves and accelerate their growth. They are building these applications to run on the cloud, taking advantage of the speed, scale, and flexibility that are hallmarks of that environment. Those early movers who have adopted a cloud-native strategy are achieving phenomenal growth as a result and accelerating their transformation for the digital age.
But undertaking the move to a cloud-native culture can seem daunting, especially if you’re a large organization with lots of legacy technology in your estate, and a culture of waterfall development. It demands an investment not only in technology, but in people, skills, culture and new ways of working to transform the organization. Many CIOs are faced with the challenges of driving the transformation of their business, leading to a host of common questions; how do you move mission-critical applications while the business is still running? How do you make sure you get maximum value from the technology straight away? How can you retrain people to think and deliver applications and services in a new way?
