Figuring out how much cloud computing a customer has adopted can present a daunting task. That’s because platforms and services may not be uniform or widespread throughout the organization. That leaves gaps and creates any number of disparities. Along those lines, understanding how best to guide that end user toward greater cloud maturity requires as much information as possible — and not simply about the cloud assets themselves.
To that end, members of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) will show managed service providers, system integrators and other cloud-centered channel partners ways to navigate clients’ cloud environments and take them to the next level. The session, “A Field Guide to the Cloud: The Cloud Native Maturity Model,” will take place at the 2023 Channel Partners Conference & Expo and MSP Summit. Robbie Glenn, technology architecture delivery manager at Accenture, Simon Forster, co-founder of consultancy Stackegy, and Danielle Cook, vice president of Kubernetes software provider Fairwinds, will team up to lead attendees on the aforementioned journey.

The event also features more than 375 ICT companies in the massive expo hall. Register now for the world’s largest independent channel event, May 1-4, at the Venetian in Las Vegas.]
As part of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation, Glenn, Forster and Cook each hold expertise in developing frameworks that gauge organizations’ progress toward cloud-native models. Channel partners looking to emulate those capabilities will want to “A Field Guide to the Cloud” for pointers.
