ESG Research Report: Observability from Code to Cloud

Abstract:

Organizations continue to try to strike the balance between cloud-native and legacy infrastructure. Whether organizations take a “cloud-first” or a “cloud-when-it-makes-sense” approach to their digital transformation initiatives, the number and variety of infrastructure options and locations continue to expand. Specifically, IT operations teams continue to strive to improve collaboration with developers on building modern application architectures and establishing the related processes. As companies accelerate or embark on their digital transformation journeys, what is the expected role of ITSM in enabling businesses to realize the benefits of automation, observability, intelligence, and optimization?

To gain insight into these trends, ESG surveyed 357 IT, DevOps, and application development professionals at organizations in North America (US and Canada) responsible for evaluating, purchasing, managing, and building application infrastructure.

ESG Complete Survey Results: Distributed Cloud Series: Cloud-native Applications

Abstract:

ESG conducted a comprehensive online survey of IT professionals from private- and public-sector organizations in North America (United States and Canada) between December 6, 2021 and December 17, 2021. To qualify for this survey, respondents were required to be IT, DevOps, and application development professionals responsible for evaluating, purchasing, managing, and building application infrastructure.

This Complete Survey Results presentation focuses on cloud-native application trends, including bridging the gap between container development, Kubernetes, and IT operations through CI/CD pipelines, as well as building, maintaining, and operating a developer-ready infrastructure without impacting developer velocity.

ESG Research Report: Cloud-native Applications

Abstract:

Today’s businesses are evolving rapidly to meet the demands of their customers, but traditional and heritage applications often do not meet the requirements. IT organizations are trying to keep their businesses running while migrating to new, modern approaches to advance the business into the future. Many organizations are taking a “cloud-first” approach to their digital transformation initiatives, which requires building, maintaining, and operating a developer-ready infrastructure without impacting developer velocity.

To understand cloud-native application trends, including bridging the gap between container development, Kubernetes, and IT operations through CI/CD pipelines, ESG surveyed 387 IT professionals at organizations in North America (US and Canada) responsible for evaluating, purchasing, managing, and building application infrastructure.

ESG Brief: SASE: A Managed Service Opportunity

Abstract:

Secure access service edge (SASE) frameworks are increasingly gaining interest with enterprise customers. The deployment of these services presents an opportunity to switch from perpetual licensing or even subscription licensing to delivering SASE as a managed service. The success of SD-WAN, a major component of a SASE framework, is certainly a driver for consuming SASE as a managed service as well. Organizations need to understand how managed service providers are delivering SASE, especially the ability to manage on-premises and cloud offerings.

ESG Brief: Cloud-native Application Trends

Abstract:

Organizations that currently develop and deploy cloud-native applications use DevOps and agile development processes significantly more than those that don't, suggesting that being cloud-native is as much about iterative methodologies as it is about technology. An organization's use of cloud-native applications and adoption of iterative methodologies, including low code/no code, also strongly correlate to its digital transformation maturity.
