When any organization starts planning for cloud-native applications, it is important to consider
the entire time span: from selecting a development platform until an application is truly production-grade and ready for delivery in the cloud. It can be a long journey, with many decisions
along the way that can help or hinder progress.
For example, at the beginning of a move to cloud-native development, it is easy for inefficiencies
to occur if developers begin selecting tools and frameworks before they know where the application will be deployed. While enterprise developers want choice of runtimes, frameworks, and
languages, organizations need standards that address the entire application life cycle in order
to reduce operational costs, decrease risks, and meet compliance requirements. Organizations
also want to avoid lock-in, whether it is to a single provider of cloud infrastructure or the latest

An introduction to the Forrester analyst report: How to Capture the Benefits of Microservice Design
There has always been a relationship between an application and the platform and services which
run it. For a long time, that relationship was very tight and encompassed a lot of areas related to the
application design, from the language the application could be written in to administrative behaviors
like monitoring and logging, even things like transaction management, frontend UI development, or
In a sense, the application platform was just another design consideration for the application. A few
years ago, as significant changes in platform technology like cloud, containers, and virtual machines
started rolling out, the primary emphasis for CTOs and application architects was on how to move to
those platforms. The platform choice was a major part of the application. The focus was — one way or
another — getting into “the cloud.”
There’s been a shift in customers’ pri
In today’s increasingly mobile world, Energy workers require instant communication and access to data intelligence wherever the job
may take them. From the oil rig to the electric grid and everywhere in between, having the right data, in the right hands, at the right time,
no matter the environment or device of choice — is simply non-negotiable. Organizations across various Energy segments — oil & gas,
electric utilities, water utilities, and mining — are currently juggling a mix of communication devices and are hindered by gaps in coverage,
poor battery life and fragile equipment that cannot withstand harsh environmental conditions.
Yet, citizens rely on their homes being heated in the winter, on clean running water, and on lights that turn on when they flip the switch.
Meeting these expectations requires reliable, clear voice and data communications for Energy workers day-in and day-out. So oil & gas
workers can communicate safely in hazardous environments. So precious resources are

In our developing digital economy, IT is a strategic asset. By effectively leveraging data, businesses become more operationally efficient, create more differentiated customer experiences, and develop new products and business models. However, unlocking those benefits requires a higher degree of execution by IT. Simply keeping pace with demand is no longer good enough; IT needs to help drive the business’s digital pursuits. The increased pressure on IT has amplified complexity, as well—66% of IT decision makers surveyed by ESG say IT is more complex than it was just two years ago.1
Demands being placed on IT are scaling relentlessly, and the tools IT teams use are in a constant state of evolution. Integrating and optimizing those new infrastructure technologies while managing existing investments is a perpetual burden. IT organizations, therefore, have two choices: either increase their personnel and budgets enough to survive the evolution with just traditional tools, or redirect those
