Cloud-native IT set for strategic dominance

Cloud-native technologies are set to dominate enterprise IT strategies, a leading analyst firm has predicted.

 

As part of the Gartner IT Symposium/Xpo EMEA, analysts from the independent consulting firm have been outlining how cloud will become the pervasive style of computing in the near future.

 

“There is no business strategy without a cloud strategy,” said Milind Govekar, distinguished vice president at Gartner. “The adoption and interest in public cloud continues unabated as organizations pursue a ‘cloud first’ policy for onboarding new workloads. Cloud has enabled new digital experiences such as mobile payment systems where banks have invested in start-ups, energy companies using cloud to improve their customers’ retail experiences or car companies launching new personalization services for customer’s safety and infotainment.”

 

In 2022, said Gartner, global cloud revenue is expected to total $474 billion, up from $408 billion in 2021. Over the next few years, Gartner analysts estimate cloud revenue will surpass non-cloud revenue for relevant enterprise IT markets.

 

Gartner analysts also said that more than 85% of organizations will embrace a cloud-first principle by 2025 and will not be able to fully execute on their digital strategies without the use of cloud-native architectures and technologies.

 

“Adopting cloud-native platforms means that digital or product teams will use architectural principles and capabilities to take advantage of the inherent capabilities within the cloud environment,” said Govekar. “New workloads deployed in a cloud-native environment will be pervasive, not just popular and anything non-cloud will be considered legacy.”

 

By 2025, Gartner estimates that over 95% of new digital workloads will be deployed on cloud-native platforms, up from 30% in 2021. As the operating model changes, the organization will turn to a product-orientated operating model where the entire value stream of the business and IT will have to be aligned by products. This will create new roles and responsibilities, such as site reliability engineers, product managers or communities of practices.

 

This event will be essential for anyone researching the latest developments in cloud and other technologies.
