Scaling cloud innovation to the enterprise with agile pods

Part of the For Cloud Professionals podcast series

Traditional software delivery methods don't work well at the speed of cloud, so many companies are turning to agile, pod-based development teams to speed their journey to cloud–and to help them continue to innovate at scale once they get there.

Pods are here, and they're building better cloud apps faster

As many companies are learning, developing cloud apps using traditional methods doesn’t work very well, because those methods just don’t move at the speed of cloud. In this episode, David Linthicum and guests, Deloitte’s Rajeev Vasudeva and HashedIn by Deloitte's Himanshu Varshney, discuss Deloitte’s recent acquisition of HashedIn. The trio focus on how HashedIn’s pod-based, agile development methodology—coupled with Deloitte’s digital transformation experience—can help companies speed their cloud journey with pod-based, agile delivery, a process he calls applied innovation. Himanshu also shares his take on what he thinks the very bright future of pod-based, agile software delivery holds as more companies adopt it.

Disclaimer: As referenced in this podcast, “Amazon” refers to AWS (Amazon Web Services) and “Google” refers to GCP (Google Cloud Platform).

You have to go to a different model of delivery, kind of industrialize it, and that's what the pod-based delivery does.

Himanshu Varshney, CEO and co-founder of HashedIn Technologies, now HashedIn by Deloitte, has 17+ years experience in the software industry. He wears multiple hats at HashedIn, primarily leading sales, marketing, and operations. In addition, he helps out with the delivery and HR functions.

Rajeev Vasudeva is a managing director at Deloitte Consulting and leads the native cloud development capability across all industries and sectors. Rajeev is a “serial capability-builder” with a long track record of creating capabilities from initial idea to incubation to scale-up.
