Cloud-native Application Development and Delivery Platform

Drive team productivity and accelerate innovation.

Get started in the Developer Sandbox

Why use a cloud-native application platform? 

With an application platform, you can spend less time dealing with operational tasks and more time building applications. A cloud-native application platform empowers development teams to adopt innovative cloud architectures including APIs, event-driven processing, and AI/ML. It enables:

  • Common pattern foundations for scalable application connectivity.
  • Accelerated delivery with frameworks, runtimes, and managed services.
  • Developer choice in languages and tools.
  • Secure supply chain for building, deploying, and running applications.
  • Developer productivity through a self-service experience that abstracts away the technical details of containers and Kubernetes.
  • Policy-driven control over deployment, operation, and security.
