            ABOUT THIS BOOK 

   A Practical Guide to Microservices and Containers

   Legacy infrastructures simply cannot handle the workloads or             power the applications that will drive business decisively forward in     the years ahead.  New infrastructure, new thinking and new               approaches are in the offing, all driven by the mantra 'transform or     die.'
   This book is meant for IT architects; developers and development       managers; platform architects; cloud specialists; and big data             specialists.  For you, the goal is to help create a sense of urgency     you can present to your CXOs and others whose buy-in is needed     to make essential infrastructure investments along the journey to       digital transformation.


In this book, you’ll learn:

  • What is digital transformation and why the urgency today?
  • Typical problems facing enterprise IT on the road to digital transformation.
  • The critical role that data, application, and infrastructure agility play in a successful digital transformation.
  • The role that microservices, containers, and the cloud play in modern data architecture.
  • How to get buy-in and develop the business case for a modern data architecture.
