The IT Executive’s Guide to Cloud Native Applications

Maximizing Cloud ROI with Reactive Microservices and Real-Time Streaming Data


Technical level: Introductory

Have you migrated application workloads to the cloud only to see promised business outcomes fall short? According to a McKinsey study, around 80% of enterprises say their application modernization efforts have failed or haven’t lived up to the hype.

While people, processes, and policies all impact success, a big roadblock remains companies who invest solely in cloud infrastructure. What’s also required is a focus on building cloud native applications that contain a streaming, data-centric application architecture powered by reactive microservices.

In these curated resources from Lightbend and 451 Research, you’ll explore the business benefits that come with developing real-time cloud native applications on top of cloud infrastructure. You’ll also discover:

  • Why cloud native applications drive enterprise transformation
  • How reactive microservices can reduce IT costs
