Leveraging the power of open source to fuel cloud innovation

Innovation is the lifeblood of information technology—especially in cloud. However, it can be expensive, time-consuming, and unproductive for companies to tackle cloud innovation in their own silos. In this episode of the podcast, David Linthicum talks with Priyanka Sharma, GM of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) about how they’re leveraging the power of open source to boost cloud innovation and make cloud computing ubiquitous. Priyanka talks about CNCF’s accomplishments as well as the exciting projects they have in the works now—and those that they are looking forward to working on. She also invites innovators to come aboard CNCF with their ideas and let the open source community help bring them to life.
