Overview

IDC predicts that by 2024, net-new production-grade cloud-native apps will increase to 70% from 10% of all apps in 2020, due to adoption of technologies such as microservices, containers, dynamic orchestration, and DevOps.
This race to develop digital products and services with digital-native speed and scale is to meet organizations' goals to become "digital innovation factories". The COVID-19 pandemic has further accelerated this digital journey as businesses prepare to build resilience and adaptability.

The future cloud-native apps and services will be at the core of every industry's digital value proposition. A large number of these applications are developed and deployed in containers, use Kubernetes orchestration environments, and consume external API-fronted services.

Containers are appealing because they help enterprises:

• Develop software faster to improve time to market and compete with digital disruptors
• Modernize application design by using microservices and DevOps methodologies to suit the cloud world
• Build in the cloud and deploy on premises by making applications portable as multicloud and hybrid cloud become the norm.

But containers and cloud-native application development represents a paradigm shift in IT operations and organizations need new skills to deploy, manage, and scale container-based applications and services.

Without standardized container management via a unified Kubernetes control plane, organizations will not be able to eliminate management complexities, ensure hybrid cloud mobility, or deliver containers at the speed of developers.
A unified management plane for VMs and containers can help drive unified policies, optimize operations, and improve resilience.

With developers now testing containers for "lift and shift" classic three-tier web applications and Java applications, a sizable chunk of container applications will need enterprise-grade security, reliability, container lifecycle management and support for smooth operations.  An open, standardised Kubernetes management plane for all container environments on-premises, public cloud or in hybrid environments can eliminate management overheads.

It will also help organizations integrate their legacy VM environments, modern hyperconverged container environment and future edge container environments into a single platform.

Interest in containers and container management platforms are clearly shifting to the next level. Join IDC and SUSE in this webinar Wednesday October 20th at 10.30am to make container strategy core to your digital innovation. It will explore how a unified, agnostic container management platform can ensure that hybrid cloud and cloud-native objectives are met and how it can help deliver business value in the digital economy.
