The importance of delivering cloud-native offerings

Industry analysts informally advise business leaders by providing perspective on technology trends within a larger context. Like a healthy open source community (that evolves core projects to benefit foundational needs with broad relevance), a good industry analyst cuts through market spin to advocate for an understanding that enables clear decision-making.

Gartner analyst Craig Lowery covers cloud technology. The title of his recent white paper states his point of view on cloud-native development in the form of an imperative: Why You Must Begin Delivering Cloud-Native Offerings Today, Not Tomorrow.

Adopting and practicing cloud-native development
