Being an IT leader today can be overwhelming. You’re probably being bombarded with the latest technology fashions and paradigms, from microservices and containers to AI and low-code to reactive and serverless. With this backdrop, it can be easy to lose focus of what you need to do: deliver business value.
When faced with a crowded technology landscape, many business leaders use “first principles” to make decisions that drive their business. A first principle is a basic assumption that cannot be distilled any further. We can apply this notion to technical paradigms, including the 12-factor app, a methodology for building modern, cloud native software.
In this webinar, Rachel Stephens, industry analyst at RedMonk, will discuss how to apply first principles to software delivery and application modernization, and what we mean when we say the one-factor app. Join the conversation along with James Watters, VP of Strategy at VMware, Padmaja Vrudhula, Senior Director of Product at VMware, and JT Perry, Vice President Business Transformation at Premera Blue Cross as they discuss:
- What first principles thinking is
- Applying first principles to an automated software delivery model
- Change in management philosophies
- What we mean by the one-factor app
- The minimum viable approach to containers
- Moving from software inventory to software manifests
- The convergence of heterogeneous systems administration approaches
