“The term ‘cloud native’ came into vogue with the arrival of Kubernetes and the 2015 establishment of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation to nurture the Kubernetes ecosystem. But although Kubernetes and containers are important cloud native elements, they aren’t essential to this new way of building software, experts say. And applications don’t have to be fully cloud native to deliver substantial new business benefits.
‘It’s about being laser-focused on addressing and solving business pain points, which are often centered around the speed and agility required to get new products and services into the market,’ said Rajeev Kaul, global managing director of cloud native engineering at Accenture Plc.”

“Cloud services, knowledge management and self-service adoption makes remote ITSM easier, according to ManageEngine, the enterprise IT management division of Zoho Corporation and the developers of ServiceDesk Plus, the flagship ITSM suite used by more than 100,000 service desks worldwide.
As employees began working beyond the corporate perimeter, the data and tools local to their network became out of reach. Therefore, a majority (78%) of IT professionals overcame this hurdle by transitioning to cloud services.”
‘The pandemic has brought IT organizations to the front line from the back office overnight,’ said Rajesh Ganesan, Vice President at ManageEngine. ‘How well a business has performed in the last few months has a lot to do with how well its IT organization has been able to enable remote work, and this trend will only intensify. As businesses strive to survive, compete and eventually lead in these tough times, closing the technology gaps highlighted in the survey will be a priority. We understand this shift and are adding capabilities to our product line to help empower our customers.’”

“Cloud computing’s inherent flexibility and scalability has led to nine in 10 enterprises laying out plans to migrate workloads off-premise by 2022.
The coronavirus outbreak has expediated this movement as businesses were driven to adopt cloud-inspired solutions (such as public, private, or multicloud) to help mitigate the pandemic-induced disruption. Cloud has become an asset to boost work efficiency and, for some, a lifeline for business continuity – investments in cloud IT infrastructure are set to climb to reach US$100 billion by 2024.”
