In part one of this blog post, we discussed the elements that make up the cloud-native development approach and how DevOps and cloud development work together. This shows how business development and operations teams have an ongoing framework where DevOps processes and cloud development form a natural alliance.
Standardizing cloud services for unified development, testing, and operations environments work in tandem with standardized, repeatable, and automated DevOps of cloud-native development. This dramatically shortens deployment cycles within the CI/CD pipeline, which delivers the following results:
The combined results from cloud-native app development and DevOps practices lead to a unified environment and collaboration between dev, testing, and ops. This gives businesses anywhere access and standardization that delivers applications that fail less often and recover quickly.
With networks, servers, operating systems, and everything else defined as code, developers can focus on delivering apps that can transform the way your business operates, competes, and grows. But this is only the beginning of the business benefits of cloud-native app development.
Cloud-native app development gives businesses the power of massive scalability, flexibility, and resiliency in a distributed platform that minimizes risk while maximizing innovation. That translates to very real business benefits that affect small businesses to global enterprises across every industry.

These are a few examples of the benefits that cloud-native app development can foster across a handful of the many industries. But realizing these benefits can be challenging for a small business to the largest enterprise. Having a partner with the right expertise can pave the way for implementation and business outcome success.
Despite cloud-native development’s many benefits 85 percent of enterprises have yet to fully adopt it, according to the Canonical 2021 Kubernetes and Cloud-Native Operations Report.

That’s because DevOps processes and cloud-native architectures and introduction involve some significant changes in business culture, team structures, and roles. Getting past these self-imposed barriers often requires skilled and experienced support for knowledge transfer, rollout, and management within an organization. Many developers and operations teams have not previously built cloud-native applications, so they will need:
