IDC TechBrief: Containers
This IDC TechBrief provides IT and business executives with an executive snapshot on container technology, with specific analysis on container benefits, risks, adoption rates, success factors, select products, metrics, and investment requirements. The graphics should be used in business proposals, marketing, use cases, and IT strategy and planning documents.
"IT executives should be considering the use of containers in at least experimental or pilot projects as quickly as circumstances permit," said Al Gillen, GVP, Software Development and Open Source, at IDC. "As adoption continues to increase, and it will, we advise executives that they should use metrics such as time to market, speed, agility, and cost savings to measure their progress and business outcomes."
