Beyond Source Code
Just as DevOps transformed operations, just as IoT is transforming communications, Microservices will transform programming. And the key to automating powerful blocks of programming is declarative, model-based rapid application development tooling.
DevOps showed us how to increase speed, improve reliability, and reduce cost while still delivering quality. We learned how to identify key operations, automate them, and turn these automations into powerful building blocks for managing infrastructure and deploying applications. This new operations model will be essential in supporting the expected tens of billions of new devices that will make up the Internet of Things — sensors, relays, and hardware agents that will monitor and enable the next phase of our connected world. And RAD tooling will be the key to programming this new connected world.
