The cloud market is moving to simplify cloud services adoption

  • Serverless has yet to establish itself as organizational maturity dilutes the value proposition
  • The rise of the service mesh

  • Leading public CSPs adopt different strategies for edge computing
  • Edge cloud is not a single technology, but a combination of related technologies that work together

Multicloud and hybrid-cloud management is the layer of operational control
