Why thinking like a designer is key for cloud applications

convcloud5.jpgAn interesting concept came up during today’s #convcloud Twitter chat (Thursdays at 1 pm Eastern, if you’re interested in joining): “flat-packing IT.”


If you Google “flat pack” you’ll find a lot of results centered around ready-to-assemble furniture. As one site put it, “Flat pack is really a philosophy of manufacture and delivery that does not compromise the resulting product.”


What does this mean for IT? As HP Software VP and evangelist Paul Muller (on Twitter as @xthestreams) tweeted “the problem with current app delivery is that each build is treated as a bespoke thing.” Instead, Muller tweeted, “think like a designer.”
