Cloud-native technologies will continue to power digital transformation strategies, says a new report from Forrester. According to the report, by the end of 2021, 60 percent of companies will leverage containers on public cloud platforms, while 25 percent of developers will leverage serverless architecture.
What Is Cloud-Native?
If you’re new to the term, cloud-native refers to the building and running applications that live in the public cloud as opposed to on-premises data centers. The “native” aspect comes from the origin of these applications as uniquely cloud-based and optimized for cloud computing.
Cloud-native technologies are typically containerized and based on microservices, and are designed to run on distributed cloud computing platforms. They are designed to be highly scalable, resilient, and easy to manage.
Top 3 Benefits Of Cloud-Native Communications & Collaboration
Wondering whether your business should be taking advantage of cloud-native communications and collaboration tools? Here are some of the benefits to consider.
By deploying powerful cloud-native services, your business can easily unify voice, chat, mobile, and other mission-critical operations across the entire enterprise. These technologies empower your business to operate as seamlessly in the cloud as though you were back in the office. This is especially useful in today’s remote work setting, with your employees most likely spread out and telecommuting from home offices with varying internet connections, equipment, and security. With cloud-native tools, you can create a cohesive, secure, and cost-effective communications environment for everyone.
A robust cloud-native communications and collaboration system increases productivity in a few different ways. First and foremost, it reduces app overload by keeping communications centralized and prevents employees from having to move back and forth between programs.
As a result, your company will experience less downtime and fewer productivity gaps. Native cloud applications that come with full business continuity and disaster recovery features ensure further protection from lost productivity.
