Cloud-native has already emerged as the dominant architecture for new and modernized applications. We’ve seen a massive adoption of containers, microservices and Kubernetes in recent years and we’ll undoubtedly see even more in 2023.
Now is the time to look beyond Kubernetes, focus on the next generation of cloud-native tools and infrastructure and explore ways to reduce complexity, optimize costs and improve enterprise readiness to build mission-critical cloud-native applications.
As part of the cloud-native evolution, lighter-weight variations of Kubernetes are going mainstream, forward-thinking organizations are leveraging AI to build smart applications and new use cases are pushing cloud-native technologies to the edge to drive innovation.
We’re also starting to see more investment into cloud security and observability-driven design and integrating OpenTelemetry within applications that provide input to operations and security.
