In today’s fast-paced business landscape, organizations must be sufficiently agile and flexible to meet the evolving needs of their customers. However, many still rely on legacy applications that can struggle to handle the demands of modern-day business requirements. This can create significant challenges for IT departments that are tasked with maintaining business operations while transitioning to more modern approaches that drive their organizations forward. To overcome these challenges, organizations are increasingly turning to a “cloud-first” strategy for their digital transformation initiatives. This approach involves prioritizing cloud-based, developer-friendly solutions over traditional on-premises software and infrastructure, allowing organizations to leverage the scalability, flexibility, and cost-effectiveness of cloud computing to improve their operations, increase agility, and meet the needs of their customers more effectively.

To assess the landscape for cloud-native applications and methodologies, Enterprise Strategy Group surveyed 378 IT and DevOps/AppDev professionals in North America (US and Canada) responsible for evaluating, purchasing, building, and managing application infrastructure in their organization.
