Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) has announced Intuit, the makers of TurboTax, QuickBooks, and Mint, as its gold member.
Intuit originally joined CNCF in January 2018 as a silver End User member, and is an active member of the CNCF End User Community. The company leverages numerous CNCF projects in production including Kubernetes, Prometheus, Fluentd, Jaeger, and Open Policy Agent, to build a modern development platform to accelerate productivity.
“End users like Intuit are invaluable to the open source ecosystem. They bring a unique perspective to project development and provide the necessary feedback to developers that is vital to the success of a project,” said Priyanka Sharma, general manager of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation.
The Intuit Developer Platform group maintains a number of open source projects including CNCF incubating project Argo, a widely used workflow engine, and continuous deployment Kubernetes tool that was brought in from the company’s 2018 acquisition of Applatix.
With a strong investment in supporting and growing the cloud native community, Intuit also serves as a founding member of the GraphQL Foundation. Intuit was the recipient of the CNCF Top End User Award at KubeCon + CloudNativeCon EU in May 2019.
