“There remains a confusion between Docker the company and Docker the technology. I like how the chart (right) maps out potential areas in the Docker ecosystem. There’s clearly a lot of places for companies to monetize the technology; however, it’s not as clear if the company will be able to secede lucrative regions, like orchestration, to become a competitive landscape.”

Pretty good piece from Harzog:
Management frameworks are dead because they have been unable to keep up with the pace of innovation in the enterprise computing industry. Management frameworks will be replaced by ecosystems of cooperating vendors that each reuse each others unique data through a common big data back end. Splunk is the first (but not the last) vendor to offer such a back end and to pursue such an ecosystem strategy.
From what I can tell, you could slot Boundary in as a hub there too.
