Migration en masse to the cloud, but further steps need to be taken
In recent years, especially the last three years, businesses have switched en masse to the cloud. Transitioning from moving a few applications from on-premises to the cloud to complete adoption of a cloud-first mindset: the steps taken vary in scope and impact.
According to Gartner, spending on public cloud services will grow 20.7% by 2023.
The common denominator in all these initiatives is that further steps are necessary. Even if you already have all your applications running in the cloud. Because that alone does not automatically make your application landscape scalable, reliable and secure. Often, for example, there is still a software monolith in the background or applications are running on a Virtual Machine (VM). If you do take those next steps, it will benefit your organization in three ways:
- Maneuverability and speed.
- Efficiency and cost savings
- Security and compliance.
