You've probably heard about "Cloud-Ready" Next Gen Apps, but do you really understand what that means? "Cloud" means many different things to many different people, and some Cloud methodologies don't fit well into typical IBM i development; but there are also unquestioned advantages to Cloud-enablement that you can take advantage of today!

This session will help you understand all of the cloud-related terms like "Public Cloud", "Hybrid Cloud", "Containers", "Virtual Machines", IaaS/PaaS/XaaS etc. and clarify on-prem vs distributed advantages and disadvantages.

Learning Objectives:
1. Learn what NextGen Apps actually are
2. Learn what "the Cloud" actually is
3. Understand Cloud terminology
4. Understand advantages (and disadvantages) to different cloud methodologies
