Here in 2019, there can be no mistaking the fact that cloud growth is explosive.
Coupled with similar growth in big data analytics and the adoption Saas-based business application and services, the industry has been making dramatic leaps and bounds in the right direction in terms of transforming the underlying application architecture.
However: it will be vital for enterprise IT organizations to continue to adapt to the new realities of modern application architectures in the coming months and years in order to remain competitive.
But what are those realities that we need to adapt to? We have a few thoughts on the trends enterprises need to look for – and adapt to:
- The continued rise of machine learning: Machine learning algorithms have established a foothold in most organizations, but they will play an even big part at the latter half of the year, especially when it comes to remediation and predictions of failures
- The multi-cloud horse is out of the barn: In the early days of cloud computing, simplicity was a key selling point, but that’s no longer the case. As enterprises have increasingly turned to cloud-based services, it’s become clear that multi-cloud environments are just as complex – if not more so – as their on premise predecessors. Multi-cloud is here to stay, and organizations are not going to go back to a single cloud any time soon.
- DevSecOps becomes a requirement: As more and more organizations realize that traditional security practices simply won’t scale across complex multi-cloud environments, the need to bake in security best practices into the development process will become increasingly paramount. Get ready to do a whole lot of “shifting left.”
- Shadow IT is not going anywhere: For years, enterprise users have been going around IT to ensure they’ve got the tools they need to do their jobs effectively and efficiently. No matter how well enterprises adapt and provide much-needed tools, employees will continue to go rogue and bring the solutions they like inside the network perimeter. We won’t put an end to Shadow IT, but it’s up to IT organizations to do their best to help rogue departments be more agile and cost-effective. That’s the only way to change their minds about shadow IT.
