Leading organizations around the globe are realizing that cloud native has moved from a buzzword to a business imperative. But many are left wondering: How do I get there? What does it mean for IT? What is this “cloud native” thing? Doesn’t using containers get me there?

Going cloud native means rethinking how we organize and deliver software. It means changing the structure of our organizations. It requires platform-level thinking about how IT supports application teams. Most importantly, it requires focusing on time-to-business value. Chip Childers discusses what it means to be truly “cloud native,” why your organization needs to make the change, and why Cloud Foundry is the right platform for cloud-native applications.

This session is sponsored by Cloud Foundry.
