The Coming of the Modern Enterprise IT Platform
By Derek Collison, CEO and Founder of Apcera
The modern Enterprise IT platform is not what it used to be. The advent of cloud-based technology has forced a shift in the IT landscape. Developers who are building Enterprise IT applications need to get their apps to market with the latest and greatest features, as quickly and efficiently as possible, without sacrificing the security and stability their users expect. IT decision-makers want rapid innovation but aren't willing to sacrifice safety to get it.
Enterprises need a platform that is developer-friendly, incorporates DevOps, and provides control and visibility for IT operations through a policy-driven architecture. Unfortunately, this platform doesn't exist. Today, you can only find pieces of this puzzle and those pieces don't fit well together.
Derek has worked on scalable, distributed systems for the majority of his career, both at traditional enterprises and at Google. He believes we have to think differently to approach this unique problem. Come hear his thoughts on the right way to tackle this challenge and how he's been implementing his solutions at Apcera.
