What is Cloud Native Application Development?
The cloud is clearly a transformational platform for software and technology delivery, but to fully to take advantage of it, we need to modernise and architect our applications to take advantage of the scalability and elasticity features it offers.
Cloud Native Application Development is an software architecture approach that uses 12 factor principles to ensure it is easy to change, scale and run under a Continuous Delivery model.
Delivery of high quality, high agility applications
We help our clients design, build, deploy and run cloud native application platforms, which drive real business value and competitive advantage.
Our Cloud Native Application Development services include:
- Development of greenfield cloud native applications built on containers and microservices
- Architectural reviews and design
- Migration from legacy applications to cloud native architectures
In order to help our customers deliver cloud native applications, we also help our clients adopt modern DevOps best practices – introducing high degrees of automation on the path to production, microservice architecture, and leveraging container technology, such as Docker.
Our enterprise vision
Cloud native applications are typically constructed as microservices, which are easier to change and iterate on in order to build better digital experiences for customers.
Cloud native applications are also inherently more robust and scalable, and can be used to develop systems which perform with low latency under high and variable degrees of load.
Finally, cloud native applications are of course delivered in the cloud, where we can fully automate and software define more of the stack to in combined infrastructure and application pipelines.
With these changes are in place, the ROI of applications is multiplied as the organisation can iterate and innovate to a much greater degree.
Dual delivery and upskilling approach
We can and have taken primary responsibility for delivering cloud native applications, however, we like to work in partnership with our clients as a combined team.
This co-delivery model enables us to help deliver on your strategic projects whilst upskilling and coaching your teams on these practices.
Replacing Titanic Releases With 10,000 Speedboats Through Continuous Delivery
Continuous Delivery is about replacing those Titanic releases with 10,000 speedboats to ship our change across the ocean into production. This strategy gets the same amount of change across the ocean, perhaps even in the same calendar time, but in 10,000 small batches instead of 1 big one.Read More

The faster you can deliver high-quality software updates based on rapid business feedback, the better your applications will be and the more easily you can set yourself apart in a busy marketplace.
This briefing goes into detail on how to achieve this by creating a constant throughput of incremental releases for rapid software iteration, based on Continuous Delivery practices.
