Why: Although cloud platforms like Cloud Foundry have greatly simplified application deployment and management, developing cloud-native apps is still challenging and time-consuming. With business demand for app development growing five times faster than IT capacity to deliver, enterprise IT teams must embrace new approaches to increase their application development velocity.
