About this Episode

About three-and-a-half years ago, Cloud Technology Partners (CTP) started working with HPE as change agents to help in how they used and consumed information technology. In one of the use cases, they were asked to work with an HPE team of about 450 developers who were using a particular waterfall method, said Robert Christiansen, vice president of Global Cloud Delivery at CTP in an interview for The New Stack Makers.

Christiansen said CTP started discussing how an approach using more modern development practices could make them more agile and adapt to market changes faster. Last year, HPE acquired CTP, wedding the two companies to further develop[ the hybrid cloud business.

How companies develop services and internally build that capability becomes a key factor.
