The digital shift has taken place, up in the clouds, and the cloud and digital-native ecosystems that thrive on DevOps and FinOps are disrupting the business world. A recent analysis by McKinsey of the global value of cloud, including digitisation, digitalisation, and cloud-native architecture, found that the total value is $873 billion. IT cost optimisation improvements equal $155 billion, digitisation of core operations sits at $311 billion, and business resilience and risk reduction at $407 billion. The firm also found that the cloud was capable of generating $3 trillion in ebitda value by 2030.

Forrester’s analysis of the leading trends shaping the organisation found that cloudnative is important to strategic success. And a piece-by-piece approach to cloud adoption and integration within the enterprise isn’t delivering. The business needs an ecosystem that’s capable of pulling all the digital threads together using a platform-based approach that’s capable of ongoing modernisation. As the firm puts it: “Yesterday’s cloud deployments are already legacy and organisations must adapt.”
