In a report titled “Forecast Analysis: Enterprise Application Software, Worldwide, 2Q15 Update,” Gartner analysts highlighted the increasing trend of application modernization among enterprises. According to a recent survey, 45% of respondents stated that modernization of installed on-premises core enterprise applications is one of the top five priorities.
Gartner also predicted that by 2020, 75% of enterprise applications will follow the model of build instead of buy. This is an indication of organizations moving towards developing cloud-native, Software as a Service (SaaS) applications instead of buying shrink-wrapped or packaged applications.
The road to cloud-native computing
The recently formed Cloud Native Computing Foundation has almost every platform company except Microsoft. VMware and Pivotal are trying to stay relevant in the era of post-virtualization. Both VMware and Microsoft have significant investments in hypervisors and virtualization technology; interestingly, both have a similar approach to embrace and extend containerization.
At the recently held VMworld 2015 conference, VMware unveiled a set of new technologies that will enable customers to adopt the cloud-native paradigm while easily extending the legacy applications to containers. While Microsoft is pushing Windows Containers and Hyper-V Containers, VMware is betting on vSphere Integrated Containers and Photon Platform.
