Cloud-native applications: the opportunities not to be missed for forward-looking enterprises

Kirey Group


    Simplification, agility, and speed: the unstoppable growth of the cloud

    Over the past two years, the market has experienced an incredible acceleration, prompting enterprises to rethink infrastructure and technology processes by putting simplification, agility, and speed at the top of the priority list. The answer to this need is the adoption of cloud infrastructure and cloud-native application portfolio renewal, which facilitate application creation and development, integration with third-party services, resource optimization, and time-to-market.

    The numbers on cloud growth certify the success of this approach: by the end of 2022, the cloud market in Italy is estimated to reach 3.84 billion euros, according to the Cloud Transformation Observatory of the School of Management of the Politecnico di Milano.


    Multicloud, composable enterprise, microservices, and Kubernetes: the cornerstones of the cloud-native approach

    In the report "Emerging Technologies: Kubernetes and the Battle for Cloud-Native Infrastructure", Gartner© identifies several trends destined to mark the present and future of organizations that want to take advantage of the potential of the cloud.

    The first trend is multicloud, or distributed cloud, which is the adoption of information architectures that allow infrastructure from different public and private clouds to be used simultaneously, to get the best from each provider in terms of performance, service continuity, systems scalability and regulatory compliance.

    Moreover, Gartner© identifies the enterprise of the future as a composable enterprise, a company that can adapt to market change through an agile and flexible organization. For the IT area, this translates into the evolution of application and data management, no longer divided into monolithic silos, but interconnected and able to adapt quickly to new business needs. This process is facilitated by the collaboration of the company's different business lines with the IT area, including development. All this is made possible by the development of microservice architectures first and foremost, which profess complete decoupling precisely between each microservice.

    Finally, among the media that enable optimal infrastructure management, Gartner© points to the emergence of Kubernetes, which could be used by 85 percent of enterprises for container-based management of complex application environments within the next three years. This open-source orchestrator makes it possible to create a containerized infrastructure for production environments and improve the productivity of development teams through the automation of deployment tasks and resource management.
