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.

Our goal is to support modernization of software by utilizing container-based technologies so that people can build loosely-coupled resilient systems and do it in a secure fashion.Priyanka Sharma is the general manager of the CNCF. She is a long-time open source leader with wide knowledge and connections in the industry, and she works closely with business and technology leadership of the CNCF to continue building the cloud native ecosystem.

Digital transformation requires a cloud native mindset

Despite the strong imperative to digitally transform, many companies still struggle. One strategy is to adopt a cloud native mindset to re-think software development, delivery, and deployment.
