  • Topic 3 – Do platforms actually help companies build applications “faster”, or are they mostly there to automate the infrastructure and services under a platform?
  • Topic 4 – We read a whitepaper talking about how Apprenda helped a customer migrate 70+ applications to the platform in a really short period of time. What do these migrations look like?
