The Future Of A Secure Multi Cloud Strategy Will Be Powered By Modern Applications​

In March of 2022, VMware commissioned Forrester Consulting to evaluate companies’ current multicloud strategies, how they are evolving, and how application modernization and containers can help. To explore this topic, Forrester conducted an online survey with 616 global IT decision-makers who are responsible for their organizations’ cloud strategy. 

We found that most respondents currently have a decentralized and ad hoc approach to multicloud strategy, but that will drastically change over the next 12 months. We also found that respondents are turning to application modernization (and increased container use) in order to leverage the scalability of their applications across larger environments.

Here are some key findings in the analyst report:

  • Respondents struggle to modernize and centralize their multicloud strategies.
  • Multicloud strategies must pivot to accommodate personnel challenges.
  • Application modernization and Kubernetes round out a holistic multicloud strategy.
