How—and why—do enterprises adopt cloud native technologies?

To better understand these trends, Lightbend has released its third survey analysis that paints a picture of enterprises in the midst of rapid technological change and faced with big decisions about their futures.

Our survey of over 1,000 developers, architects, and IT leaders shows that enterprises are grappling with these issues as they rapidly adopt new cloud technologies. But disagreements remain between developers and management around what the highest priorities are—or should be—for cloud native migrations.

Download this report to explore insights that reveal:

  • Management tends to have a clearer view of “cloud native” than developers
  • Microservices and containers are key to cloud portability and performance
  • Enterprises are torn between automation and configurability
  • Developers and executives don’t always prioritize the same things

$1 was donated for each completed survey which resulted in over $1,000 to the Center for Disaster Philanthropy, a non-profit organization that mobilizes a full range of resources that strengthen the ability of communities to withstand disasters and recover equitably.
