Technology has fundamentally changed the way we live and the way we work. Enterprises have shifted from the question of “How can my company take advantage of the cloud?” to “What is cloud-native, and why do I need it?” in just a few short years. At the same time, they find themselves wondering, “What role does open source software play in this?” Perhaps most importantly, as software overtakes the business world, they ask, “How do I keep my technology team happy?” The answer to all of these questions is one word: flexibility.
Open source software offers flexibility, and the opportunity for broad collaboration. When combined with cloud-native application architectures and continuous delivery practices, large-scale transformation happens across every industry. In this talk, Abby Kearns will walk us through the cloud-native explosion, why it matters to enterprises, the flexibility it delivers and the role that open source software, platforms and ecosystems play in developing software at scale.
