What You’ll Hear.

Cloud is often viewed as the infrastructure of choice and cloud-native as the application modernization destination of choice. The truth is that both present a complex reality for organizations worldwide. While using multiple clouds and cloud-native application ensures choice and flexibility, it also creates operational challenges. A 451 study shows that 46% of all workloads will run on-premises predominantly using “refractor and shift” or “modernized” approach. So, how do you run traditional applications in a hybrid, multi-cloud environment? How do you find the right balance between cost savings and investments in modern platforms to support application modernization? By 2025, more than 85% of global organizations will be running containerized applications in production, which is a significant increase from fewer than 35% in 2019. In the second in a series of discussions on modernizing the digital core we discuss: • The use of hybrid- and multi-cloud strategies to modernize the data center. • An existing need for cloud-native applications using containers and microservices.
