How to move important business applications to the cloud faster.

When it comes to managing business software applications, there are lots of good reasons to move to the cloud, and many enterprises are committed to it. But how can you move such important infrastructure without making major compromises? Enterprises need the best of both cloud and on-premises worlds—modernization combined with a breadth of capabilities, reliability, performance, and customization of proven applications. 

Cloud native applications are optimized for containerized deployment on any Kubernetes platform. These cloud capabilities drive significant benefits in terms of faster software updates, scalability, application performance, and reduced maintenance costs.

A major challenge still remains, however—how can vendors further simplify and reduce the risks of making such a move without increasing IT budgets that come with additional and complex migration projects? And, especially with mission critical applications, how do you sustain it over time?
