It would first be helpful to understand the architecture of the application that is leveraging containers and if it makes sense to leverage an orchestration solution such as Kubernetes.

While there is a lot to go through… I think about the pipeline that lets the team continuously improve production performance.

Some basics… start with hardened images; how do you tackle vulnerability scanning for container images; what are your security sensors & telemetry; team thoughts on registry monitors; asset management and reporting for deployed containers; finally think about the org structure to support the reliability & performance — and how you’re going to improve each of these things by at least small percentages all the time.

You definitely should look for a management tool to help remove the risks associated with the volume. is one such example.

Without a doubt - Technical Debt! It's a ball and chain that creates an ever increasing drag on any organization, stifles innovation, and prevents transformation.
