In the second of our series of Container World speaker prediction, Jason McGee, IBM Fellow, VP and CTO, IBM Cloud Platform, shares his predictions. Jason is currently responsible for the IBM Cloud foundational developer services, including Containers and Schematics.
Microservices architectures built on containers and serverless computing have revolutionized the speed at which apps can be built and how they connect into the most competitive technologies today: AI, blockchain and machine learning. In 2018, we will see the adoption of these technologies reach a tipping point.
They will move from early adoption to becoming the de-facto standard for complex and production-ready apps across industries and companies of all sizes.
This shift is being driven by new tools that emerged in 2017 – like Grafeas, Istio and Composer – that enable developers to more securely manage and coordinate the many moving parts created by building with containers, serverless and microservices.
These tools are enabling greater visibility for the developer including who is working with data, what's being changed, and who has access, leading to better security. The result will be an uptick in the development of mature apps that can span and operate across multiple systems, teams and data streams.
