Announcing Legacy Application Modernization Live Workshops

It is an exciting (and stressful) time to work in IT. The IT organization is challenged to maintain the existing applications and infrastructure that power the business, and is pressured to adopt modern, cloud-based technologies to deliver scale and agility, or cut costs.

The journey to the cloud (and cloud-native technologies, like containers) is the biggest transformation in IT since virtualization—and is far greater in scope and magnitude. Migrating existing workloads to the cloud is complex and can disrupt the business if not treated carefully. This is where Apcera comes in.

The Big and the Small of IoT

The world of the Internet of Things (IoT) is commonly described within a swirl of superlatives: ”billions of devices,” “brand new business models,” “the destruction of business as we know it,” and the list goes on. Such a technological revolution seems too big to be tamed. So how is a cloud platform developer to approach and assimilate such a beast?

Our customers have posed this same question to us here at Apcera. Interestingly, some of these customers already have pretty specific desires or “proof points” in mind as they approach the whole concept of purpose-built IoT.

Why Apcera & Why Now?

You might be wondering, "what is Apcera doing that Mark found so interesting?” Those of you who have been participating in the industry with me, following my twitter feed or reading my blogs will know that I’ve had a fascination with the strategic business value of cloud for many years now. Some of you who were paying closer attention might have noticed that I was a very early adopter of the idea that enterprises would end up needing to manage a heterogeneous application delivery environment (aka hybrid). In fact, I’ve been thinking hybrid since 2009.

Building a Trusted Fabric for Containers with Kubernetes

As you may have read, Apcera will be integrating with Kubernetes to provide a trusted fabric for containers. This is a BIG DEAL for us and a big bet on the future of cloud computing. It comes after I joined the Governing Board of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation - the recently new custodian of Kubernetes - to become more personally involved in the project.

Here’s the backstory.
