This week we spoke with Chip Childers, technology chief of staff at the Cloud Foundry Foundation, about the technical and architectural decisions that help define the modern enterprise. Cloud Foundry Foundation is the independent organization that oversees the development and adoption of the Cloud Foundry platform, and it’s a sponsor of The New Stack.
More than half of the Fortune 500 uses Cloud Foundry, so the Cloud Foundry Foundation depends on the enterprise using, contributing to, and advancing its open source projects. Childers works closely with developers and CIOs at all of the foundation’s member companies, and so he has a deep understanding of what it is that a modern enterprise needs in order to succeed in today’s rapidly changing technology landscape. In a recent post for The New Stack, he wrote that “Modern enterprises ... think critically about what they should build themselves and what they should source from somewhere else.”
