It considers Git as the single source of information and pushes all the data to Kubernetes Clusters, so there is no drift between the desired and current state. This approach is developer-friendly because they are already familiar with the tools to pull or push changes for application deployments and managing Kubernetes operations.

As we are making the transition towards Cloud where the majority of the things are API driven and mostly infrastructure can be provisioned within a few hours compared to the traditional approach explained above.
