These findings indicate a rapid shift to digital transformation via Cloud Foundry.”

Cloud Foundry has been developed through the collective effort of EMC, HPE, IBM, VMware, SAP and worldwide leaders in manufacturing, telecommunications and financial services. Only Cloud Foundry delivers the velocity needed to develop apps at the speed of business.
