At the end of each of our webinars, we hold a Q&A session where the audience can ask questions that arose from the webinar content. This blog series highlights some of those questions to expose them to a wider audience.
This week the questions come from the webinar, Beyond Cloud Automation - Reshaping Your Cloud Strategy, where Forrester Principal Analyst Dave Bartoletti and Embotics CTO Scott Davis discussed key trends in Hybrid cloud computing, and how they could impact your business strategy.

Business today is increasingly digital; organizations across a wide range of industries – from financial services to ecommerce – are providing software-based core capabilities and services to customers. And to effectively compete, businesses need to be able to deliver these software features, services and solutions far more rapidly than ever before, while maintaining high quality and preserving a rich user experience.

Service oriented architectures (SOAs) have been around since the 1990s, providing an alternative to monolithic applications – essentially collections of coarse grained components that communicated with each other. But, while SOAs used to serve as a revolutionary approach to solving the architectural problems challenging businesses, it’s simply no longer the case in today’s business landscape.
As many readers in this space are aware, Embotics made a pretty big announcement this summer. We’re ready to declare the death of the old way of managing cloud environments - CMP 1.0 - and move on to building the future cloud management platform – one that is designed for microservices, DevOps and hybrid IT. We’re calling it CMP 2.0, and it’s got everyone at Embotics excited about the future of our company and our industry.
With the growth in cloud and mobile technologies, there’s a new player in town when it comes to application development: microservices. You’ve probably seen microservices, containers and serverless computing mentioned across the news these past few months – and the reason is not surprising. Microservices architecture has the potential to seriously disrupt the way enterprise IT develops applications in the future.
The world of applications is currently undergoing a fundamental shift, and the changes in the landscape are dramatic. DevOps, the cloud, platform-as-a-service and microservices are aggressively speeding up the pace for innovative companies to create, deliver and refine new services.

With the explosive growth of the cloud, big data analytics and SaaS-based business applications and services, we’ve seen the underlying application architecture transform. Applications today are no longer limited by the infrastructure they run on. Instead, they can control their fundamental infrastructure technologies, turning them into services to be harnessed on demand and programmatically during application execution. Key to exploiting “Infrastructure as Code”, modern applications are being constructed out of a collection of autonomous, independent building blocks dedicated to a single function each, called Microservices. Uber, Amazon, Netflix, Ebay and Twitter have all publicly embraced this type of approach to building and delivering their services. So why are so many organizations turning to microservices in the cloud era?
