Welcome to another VSHN.timer! Every Monday, 5 links related to Kubernetes, OpenShift, CI / CD, and DevOps; all stuff coming out of our own chat system, making us think, laugh, or simply work better.
This week we’re going to talk about how businesses adapt to the new landscape of Cloud-Native computing.
1. Some organizations still have many doubts and reserves regarding Cloud-Native technologies, while their competition embraces them and thrives. For Lee Atchison at InfoWorld, such hesitations are a matter of life and death nowadays.
2. Some organizations have embraced Cloud-Native technologies completely. Des Field Corbett, CIO at Allianz Direct, explains how their company has increased turnover and agility in spite of astonishingly rigid regulatory and legal frameworks.
3. This year Heroku celebrates its 15th anniversary. Long hailed for its innovative developer experience, it has fallen behind in various ways. Matt Rickard analyzes the reasons why Heroku failed.
4. The most critical system, yet the most complex to automate and operate in any cloud-enabled organization is billing, without any doubt. What are the challenges there? Lago, the maker of the Open-Source Stripe Billing Alternative, explains it all.
5. The VSHN.timer project of the week is swiss-qr-bill-server, an HTTP Server to generate a Swiss QR-Bill and optionally attach it to an existing PDF, by our neighbors at Pingen, creators of the powerful Swiss Online Postal Service.
