Outsystems report identifies challenges and costs for architecting cloud infrastructure
Outsystems has released its latest report outlining the true costs for enterprises architecting their cloud infrastructures, and develop cloud-native apps.
The latest Cloud Native Development Report looks at the complexities and risks of jumping to cloud-native development, including the myriad options – such as Kubernetes, containers, microservices – available to cloud architects.
Gartner and IDC predict that 90-95% of apps will be cloud-native by 2025 and that nearly two-thirds of enterprises will become prolific software producers that deploy code daily.
Complexity over containerisation and Kubernetes – which is fast becoming the container orchestration platform of choice for enterpises – means that building and scaling cloud native systems is increasingly costly for organisations.
Kubernetes is an open-source container orchestration system for automating software deployment, scaling, and management.
Outsystems offers US-based insurance firm Atom as an example. The $3 billion revenue firm has an annual IT budget of $190 million, and began a project ot modernise its portfolio of applications. Despite its large IT developer team, Atom lacked in-house cloud-native expertise.
The report also outlines a number of key risk factors that could disrupt the deployment timeline, and warns this could lead to increased costs.
These risk factors include:
– Cloud costs
– Other variables
To find out more about how to mitigate these costs, or to learn how you can develop cloud-native applications easier and at a lower cost, check out the latest report from OutSystems.
