Building a Cloud Ecosystem Architecture
The Cloud Zone is brought to you in partnership with Mendix. Better understand the aPaaS landscape and how the right platform can accelerate your software delivery cadence and capacity with the Gartner 2015 Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Application Platform as a Service.
InfoQ has posted the presentation video for my Building a Cloud Ecosystem Architecture presentation.
The abstract for the presentation:
Offering a business capability as a one-size-fits-one solution is a typical IT solution trap. One-size-fits-one solutions do not exhibit the adaptability or agility required to fulfill new business opportunities. Teams are intrigued by the cloud’s promise to create a one-size-fits-ALL solution. Implementing Cloud architecture concepts to build an ecosystem platform and a vertical Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) will accelerate the IT team’s ability to deliver solutions that support business growth objectives. A cloud ecosystem platform enables teams to deploy context-aware solutions, rapidly provision 3rd party application projects, automate governance approval tasks, ensure regulatory compliance, monetize user interactions, and host applications that seamlessly extend the user experience. By hosting all business partners as tenant applications within a multi-tenant environment, the ecosystem environment more readily aggregate and share business information.
In this session, Chris will describe:
• Why ecosystem platforms and tenant personalization increase business agility.
• When to extend the user experience by architecting multi-tenant, context-aware cloud applications and APIs.
• How frameworks and containers are evolving to deliver a multi-tenant environment from data to screen.
• How a vertical Platform-as-a-Service ensures regulatory compliance, automates governance approval tasks, and more readily shares business information and capabilities.
