HCL Software’s cloud-first architecture and deployment make your cloud native journey easy. Unlock the full potential of your software by the technical experts who have created the solution. 

Our technology choices are guided by the Cloud Native Computing Foundation’s definition of cloud native. We enable our software with core cloud native technologies: containers with Kubernetes orchestration and Helm packaging. Request routing, access control and monitoring are provided by broadly adopted open-source solutions: Ambassador, Key cloak, Prometheus and Grafana. A dashboard application provides consistent access to the underlying Kubernetes resources, product log files and more, making it easy to get started with Kubernetes regardless of which cloud provider is used. We develop and deliver our offerings using cloud native practices, including dev/ops and CI/CD, so evolving our software into a rapidly delivered, cloud-ready portfolio of products with consistent install, monitoring and update characteristics.
