Today, the world revolves around developers. Digital businesses are becoming a significant part of the landscape. Traditional business thrives on its responsiveness to customers and how it handles business data. People used to talk about the Era of Information Technology, however now we’re in the Era of the Developer.
Fast-moving businesses recognize the need to give developers the tools, platforms, and application services developers require to get things done. Equally important is getting obstructions out of the way of developers and allowing them to move fast. What do developers need to be successful in this modern world? They need self-service, on-demand capabilities, immediate scale, and little to no operations. Simply put, developers want to write code – and do so in a manner that lets them focus on writing code without having to manage tools and infrastructure. The overhead of managing infrastructure or dealing with a mismatch between development and production systems, steals precious cycles from a developer’s main driver – writing code.
