In the preceding chapters, we learned about what makes a cloud native architecture unique and different from previous patterns of building IT systems. In our view, cloud native is not strictly limited to architectural decisions made relating to core technology components of a given system. In order to receive the biggest benefits, operations must evolve alongside our cloud technology adoption. Without a cloud native organization, most of the benefits of the cloud will go waste.
In this chapter, we will learn about how to build an effective organization that can design, build, and maintain a cloud native environment. It is a combination of processes, people, and tools that come together to realize the full potential of cloud native development (CND).
By the end of this chapter, you will understand the following:
- How the cloud has driven changes in what an average technology professional is supposed to do
- What a successful cloud native organization looks like...
