Companies need to transform themselves into software companies and must be able to leverage cloud-native software development and delivery best practices if they are to add value to their products and services, outcompete their rivals and satisfy their customers in today’s digital world.
In order to make this transition, enterprises need to maximise the lifetime value of their developers by lowering acquisition costs and increasing productivity and retention rates. This will be particularly challenging in a market where the right skills are scarce and expensive, and the most-qualified developers are often sought-after creatives with low boredom thresholds and a strong sense of their own value. Providing developers with a congenial working environment where they feel productive and fulfilled is a paramount concern for companies, but at the same time, businesses need to enforce corporate policies and best practices without appearing to constrain developer autonomy.
This paper discusses the concept of an accelerated microservices development platform, explains why such a platform is critical to a company’s cloud-native software delivery and identifies the features that enterprises should look for when selecting a platform.
