Cloud native is more than a tool set. It’s a full architecture, a philosophical approach for building applications that take full advantage of cloud computing. Going cloud native requires an organization to shift not only its tech stack but also its culture and processes. These human-centered changes can be the most difficult aspect of a transformation and many migrations stumble, or even fail, by making common mistakes rooted in cognitive bias. Patterns can help them avoid these pitfalls.

Pini Reznik shares a story of a typical enterprise as it undertakes a cloud migration and, in the process, shows the differences between waterfall, agile, and cloud native approaches. The story, drawn from real-world migration projects, demonstrates a transformation design and reveals related patterns as it progresses, including failures along the way. By the end a full pattern language is established. Pini’s story is based on experiences gained through five years of consulting in cloud native and 20 years of overall IT experience.
