Digital transformation requires a cloud-native mindset

Part of the Architecting the Cloud podcast series

Despite the strong imperative to digitally transform, many companies still struggle with it. One strategy is to adopt a cloud-native mindset that leverages AIOps and shifts DevOps bottlenecks left to re-think software development, delivery, and deployment in a cloud-native world.

Accelerating digital transformation by adopting a cloud-native philosophy

There’s little doubt that the future is digital, and that future is now. Companies who don’t transform risk being left behind by their competitors. However, traditional approaches to software development are not effective in a digital world where everything runs at the speed of the cloud. In this episode of the podcast, Mike Kavis and guest, Andreas Grabner of Dynatrace, discuss how companies can change their approach to software development and delivery to speed digital transformation. Andreas’s advice for companies is to leverage AIOps to automate much of IT operations and shift DevOps bottlenecks left to enable organizations to re-think how they provide solutions for a cloud-native world, and develop, deliver, and operate in a cloud-native way.

Every organization...that is transforming into a true digital business, that wants to leverage cloud-native technology, that wants to enable cloud-native development teams to use cloud-native technology...needs to re-think how to develop, how to deploy, and how to operate.

Andreas Grabner has 20+ years of experience as a software developer, tester, and architect and is an advocate for high-performing cloud scale applications. He is a regular contributor to the DevOps community and a frequent speaker at technology conferences.
