Application code and its lifecycle now underpin not just the application but all aspects of modern IT.
Modern public cloud platforms like Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform and others are fundamentally changing how applications and the infrastructure they consume are architected.

This paper will explore the background to infrastructure and application maintenance. Also, it will introduce a number of cloud management patterns that help organisations transform the speed and quality of their application development while also reducing their costs and driving efficiency.
