Docker is a technology that has the potential to transform the business of delivering software applications across a variety of industries. Not only that, but it will also greatly change the way that businesses view their enterprise architecture as it relates to their business strategy. With a fully dockerized application deployment environment, companies will be able to iterate, deliver, test, and QA their software products at a speed like never before.
Without the use of Docker, software development can quickly become a quagmire of different software and hardware specifications that need to be followed to the T. Adhering to these specifications itself becomes a huge strain on your organization’s software developer’s time as they try to navigate all the different version of frameworks they’re using, what OS needs to be run for what, where the database is located – in a nutshell, as your software team grows, the complexity of the underlying technology stack they use will also grow and sooner or later they will face “The Matrix of Hell”:
Ideally, with a proper Docker deployment, your software team will no longer run into the “but in runs on my machine” problem and thus able to free up valuable resources to work on more pressing development issues.
