Technology has always been an enabler in challenging the status-quo but turbulent market shifts have accelerated the journey to becoming digital businesses for traditional enterprises.

There are many forcing functions but enterprises are striving for the intelligence that can be gained by ever increasing data proliferation to find better ways to engage with customers while thwarting the challenges posed by disruptive new entrants.

Speed winsWe all have seen the disruption in last few years that new entrants have created in different markets and while technology is the driver if we peel the onion one layer, we find the key is their ability to deliver software applications at speed unmatched by traditional incumbents. We have seen disruption even in the industries that have higher barriers to entry.

It is imperative to lay the right infrastructure foundation giving you the agility and speed for your digital business.

Choose Containerized Infrastructure and Cloud-Native Architecture to gain speed

Directly or indirectly, containers enable several key tenants of digital transformation. Portability across different platforms by standardizing packaging of applications reduces friction in deployments. It also accelerates adoption of DevOps, which is key in delivering applications faster. The rise of microservices architectures has further propelled container adoption. Containers are at the center of technology and process evolution that digital companies have embraced. While the benefits of containers are clear, the production deployment has lagged. Lack of unified security, networking, monitoring, observability and management across hybrid deployments are often cited as primary inhibitors to broader adoption.
