The Cloud Agnostic Approach: An Interview with Perficient Latin America

The strong intersection between DevOps and cloud computing is allowing businesses to scale faster, bring products and services to the market more rapidly, and even leverage big data in innovative ways. Perficient Latin America's Director of Engineering, Sebastian Velez Ruiz, sat down with Clutch, a recognized B2B portal that analyzes and catalogs over 7,000 agencies worldwide, to talk about DevOps, a cloud agnostic strategy and how companies can start leveraging the cloud to drive new business opportunities.

Velez stressed the importance of understanding DevOps as a mindset that encourages innovation and accelerated development cycles. DevOps is strongly tied to the cloud because the cloud makes the application of DevOps principles quick and efficient. However, before jumping into any cloud strategy, Velez suggests carefully analyzing which of your products is a fit for the cloud and leveraging past experiences or research. You'll also need to be ready for challenges that will arise, as implementing a cloud strategy is not a simple task. It is important to note that risks can be mitigated by using a cloud vendor.

To help guide businesses as they select the most appropriate cloud strategy, Velez highlighted the cloud agnostic model, which allows you to deploy to different vendors as needed. This model provides added flexibility and independence for businesses and means they can choose the best services from each vendor.
