Too often, the debate about IT is dominated by a narrow focus on near-term objectives: shrill cries claim that the business will stop (or fail) if a feature isn’t added to the ecommerce site, if the mobility platform isn’t improved, if the network and compute back end aren’t upgraded, if storage and database performance isn’t accelerated. Often, these changes are truly essential, and demand immediate attention. However, midmarket firms can’t assemble a meaningful strategy from point responses to near-term issues. Increasingly, midmarket enterprises are finding that continued operational success requires an “agile-cloud” – an agility-oriented, cloud-based IT strategy that addresses the three core changes faced by midmarket firms: the changing nature of business infrastructure, the accelerating pace of change in business, and the expanding scope of IT.

Driven by the acute imperative of digital transformation, enterprises and other organizations are adopting multicloud strategies as springboards to increase business agility and competitive differentiation. At the same time, monolithic application development is being superseded by microservices, which entail the decomposition of previously complex applications into independent, modular processes that communicate with each other using language-agnostic APIs.
Flexible infrastructure choices and application architectures are changing the way that modern enterprises run their computing.
Enterprises have become application-centric, investing significant effort and resources on continuous delivery goals and DevOps
practices to achieve automation of routine IT and operations tasks. With application owners seeking public-cloud-like simplicity
and agility in their own data centers, IT teams are under pressure to reduce wait times to provision applications and updates.
"For existing applications to gain the agility, scalability, resilience, and cost benefits of cloud computing, organizations need to adopt cloud-native architectures. By making this switch, you’ll be better suited to scale more quickly, so you can help meet your ever-changing user demands. The challenge is how to make this transition to a cloud-native architecture, quickly and easily.
