Complexity gives way to simplicity and flexibility
ORGANISATIONS ARE OVERHAULING THEIR IT LANDSCAPES BY COMBINING OPEN source, open standards, virtualisation, and containerisation. Moreover, they are leveraging automation aggressively, taking steps to couple existing and new platforms more loosely, and often embracing a ‘cloud first’ mind-set.
