Cloud Foundry has become the industry standard platform for cloud applications. IBM, HPE, Pivotal, SAP, and many others contribute to this multi-cloud open source project to enable continuous delivery for all companies.
All teams will henceforth expose their data
and functionality through service interfaces.
Teams must communicate with each other through these interfaces. There will be no other form of inter-process communication
allowed: no direct linking, no direct reads of another team’s data store, no shared-memory model, no back-doors whatsoever. The
only communication allowed is via service interface calls over the network. It doesn’t matter what technology they use. All service
interfaces, without exception, must be designed from the ground up to be externalizable. That is to say, the team must plan and
design to be able to expose the interface to developers in the outside world. No exceptions.
Anyone who doesn’t do this will be
fired. Thank you; have a nice day!
