Revolutionize enterprise shared services using Apprenda with upstream Kubernetes


“50% of large organizations are planning to or already are using containers”

Accelerating Digitalization

Containers have become a standard tool for developers. Recent analysis from 451 Research indicates that 50% of large organizations are planning to or already are using containers. All indications therefore point to containers being here to stay.

With current popular use cases taking a project-centric approach to containers and orchestration, and significant numbers of projects taking place simultaneously within large organizations, a familiar problem is coming into focus for central IT organizations: control.

This paper highlights the value of enterprise controls to a true open source container platform via a selection of core capabilities that revolutionize a shared services model.

Revolutionizing Shared Services

Historically, such a platform would have come with compromises. Control would have been sacrificed for agility, or agility would have been traded for openness. However, those trade-offs no longer apply since some container platforms, such as Apprenda, have been able to integrate upstream open source Kubernetes into its container platform, thus delivering openness, agility and control.

This paper covers core themes of enterprise value including:

  • Service Operator Models featuring CaaS & DBaaS
  • Governance, Risk & Compliance
  • Mixed-Era Application Support
  • Openness & Extensibility


Apprenda Cloud Platform empowers enterprise IT to create a Kubernetes-enabled shared service on the infrastructures of their choice and offer it to developers across business units.
