Jason Bloomberg Interview on Cloud Trends

Cloud trends: Microservices and HPC

We chat again with Jason Bloomberg, a leading industry analyst and expert on achieving digital transformation by architecting business agility in the enterprise. He writes for ForbesWiredTechBeacon, and his biweekly newsletter, the Cortex. As president of Intellyx, he advises business executives on their digital transformation initiatives and delivers training on Agile Architecture. His latest book is The Agile Architecture Revolution. Check out his first interview on Agile trends here.

People have found that Web services are too heavyweight, and we don’t want middleware driving our architecture. Instead, developers want lightweight, RESTful interfaces as part of a distributed cloud-friendly infrastructure. The overall business benefit is increased agility from having software that’s more flexible. The monolithic applications of the past are extremely inflexible, making it difficult to leverage change for business advantage.
