Cloud native

Leveraging the cloud in software development

Adoption of cloud services is a huge global IT trend. Typically, all the new “as-a-service” products utilized by businesses and the public sector are built on the cloud.


New software development is increasingly cloud native. We define cloud native software development as the development of software that explicitly targets the cloud. It makes use of managed services and new compute platforms offered by cloud providers and combines them with a new, more dynamic approach to development and operations enabled by the cloud.
