Definition: Modern Application Development

Modern application development is the rapid creation, maintenance, and management of applications that can run across complex hybrid cloud environments without modification. This approach lets organizations get the most from innovative technologies like containers and microservices and game-changing practices like agile, DevOps, and continuous integration and deployment (CI/CD).
