Container technology promises to help enterprises modernize legacy apps & create cloud-native apps for today’s fast growing digital economy. But, the container ecosystem, built around open src, is still relatively new & evolving at a breakneck pace. CIOs/CTOs today face the need to develop & implement a container strategy, knowing the risks of deploying a still immature technology into production environments that require 0 downtime.

This panel will bring together stakeholders from enterprise IT & open src cloud vendors to discuss the role of open src container technologies in their cloud strategies. Panelists will recount challenges & pitfalls faced in deploying containers in production environments & highlight gaps before containers are fully “enterprise ready", & best practices. Panelists will offer their views on the near future of containers as an enabler of the enterprise cloud.
