How are you identifying and embracing new technologies to enable digital change?

While using multiple clouds and cloud-native applications ensures choice and flexibility, it’s also creating making more work for the CIO by introducing new layers of operational complexity. And yet, the demand for modernization continues.

A 451 study predicted that 46% of all workloads will soon run on-premises predominantly using “refractor and shift” or “modernized” approach.

To optimize your cloud first strategy for resiliency, consistency, application modernization and cloud-native innovation, you need to streamline processes, and build a hybrid or multi-cloud strategy that uses modern tools to specifically meet your individual challenges.

Containerization is one method many CIOs are turning to for its portability, agility and rapid delivery. In fact, in 2025, more than 85% of global organizations will be running containerized applications, which is a significant increase from fewer than 35% in 2019.

But then, 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?
