RECENT CLOUD COMPUTING QUOTE:

"OutSystems is an "agile" company. This means that we never do anything in a big bang and go about every new project or initiative in increments, learning in the process and creating check points where we make constant go/no-go decisions. At these decision points we acknowledge that we have either failed (and we try to learn with the process and fail softly), cutting our losses fast or we decide we should continue investing and carry on to the next iteration.

The practice of product innovation is deeply ingrained in the DNA in of OutSystems but as we grow and scale the focus of our creativity and innovation has increasingly been directed at both product and process innovation. The great minds we have in the company are being channeled at creating new more efficient ways of delivering projects, training our ecosystem of partners, customers and fans and selling faster, better and with less overhead."

In his keynote at 19th Cloud Expo, Sheng Liang, co-founder and CEO of Rancher Labs, discussed the technological advances and new business opportunities created by the rapid adoption of containers. With the success of Amazon Web Services (AWS) and various open source technologies used to build private clouds, cloud computing has become an essential component of IT strategy. However, users continue to face challenges in implementing clouds, as older technologies evolve and newer ones like Docker containers gain prominence. He explored these challenges and how to address them, while considering how containers will influence the direction of cloud computing.
