The Cloud Native
Maturity Matrix

Everything you need to know


A tool to help map your Cloud Native journey

What is the Cloud Native Maturity Matrix?


The Cloud Native Maturity Matrix is a tool created by Container Solutions to help organisations visualise their current state, the state of Cloud Native maturity, and the gaps they must cross to achieve it. The Maturity Matrix is produced for clients that invite us to conduct a Cloud Native Assessment (CNA). During a three-day CNA, our experts determine not only the technology the company uses, but also its internal processes and culture, its goals, and how they all fit together.

The Maturity Matrix plots an organisation’s current state across nine categories, including: Culture, Product or Service Design, Team, Process, Architecture, Maintenance, Delivery, Provisioning, Security, and Infrastructure. The tool, and CNA process that produces it, are part of the first step of in Container Solutions' four-step process for Cloud Native transformation: Think, Design, Build, Run.

Map Your Transformation

Container Solutions has devised a set of patterns that make it easier for developers, managers, and executives to discuss, learn, and apply the best practices in Cloud Native. These are high-level patterns for strategy and risk reduction, intended to guide decision making—patterns for transforming your organization and culture to this new way of thinking and working.

To help your organisation start thinking about its challenges and opportunities, talk to us about booking a session playing the Cloud Native Transformation Game with our experts. The game uses cards featuring many of the patterns you’ll find in Container Solutions’ new book, Cloud Native Transformation: Practical Patterns for Innovation,  published by O’Reilly. For a limited time, you can download the whole book, free, here
