Organizations will obviously make hard decisions first about why it might make sense for them to makes the jump to the cloud — especially when porting data and infrastructure to a microservices and Kubernetes environments. Famous use-case scenarios aside, from Netflix to Airbnb, many small- to medium-size organizations stand to benefit in different ways, depending on what they do.
Typical concerns and needs organizations look for include compliance, data protection, and especially, how the cloud can specifically further their business goals — which can obviously vary, depending on the organization. Examples of what the cloud and cloud native platforms can do for organizations were the subject of a podcast Alex Williams, founder and editor-in-chief, of The New Stack recently hosted with Zara Nanu, CEO at Gapsquare, and Kenny Gorman, CEO of Eventador. Bob Quillin, vice president, Oracle Cloud developer relations, was also on hand to describe what his customers have been telling him about what they need.
