How do you talk to a CIO (and his team!) that wants to modernize his apps and explore cloud native application development? Their challenge is how to keep innovating when, according to Gartner, only 11% of their budget goes to true innovation and creation of new apps, that they can use for modern approaches and application environments. In addition, they can’t always find reliable vendors that supply them with enterprise-grade support, supported standards, or technology with wide market adoption; which they need to thrive in the fast evolving business world. In this session we will offer our vision for modern application development and how to deal with that sales conversation, and introduce you to RHOAR (Red Hat OpenShift Application Runtimes), the upcoming cloud-native development offering by Red Hat, offering a curated and enterprise-grade supported selection of the most popular runtimes, including Java EE, SpringBoot, Microprofile, Node.js and Vert.x.
