Developing a product mindset to build apps at the pace of cloud

Though the concept of a “product mindset” isn’t new, over the past decade—with the ascendance of cloud—it has really started to gain traction as a better way to build cloud apps, or any app or system. In this podcast, David Linthicum talks with Twilio’s Anthony Lazaro about what a product mindset is, how companies can leverage it to build apps that generate high ROI for the organization, and how to develop a product mindset and culture to build apps at the pace of cloud.


In order to get the ROI out of your investments, you need really strong, sound product principles and culture on your teams that are building.

Anthony Lazaro is a principal product manager at Twilio with 10+ years experience in developing, launching, and scaling technology products. Anthony has led teams across product, marketing, and business operations.
