What Cloud Natives Can Teach the Rest of Us

Cloud-native companies have several advantages over their traditional counterparts, not the least of which is an absence of legacy technology. The flexible nature of the cloud enables nimbler business strategies and operations that result in faster innovation, if not disruption.Meanwhile, the incumbents are trying to keep up with the accelerating pace of change. While most companies have adopted the cloud to some extent, the migration tends to be slower and more painful than anticipated because cloud migration is not just about technology. It also takes cultural adjustment, process change, structural modifications and a shift in mindset. The [cloud-native] business managers from the CEO on down have an attitude and perspective that their technology architecture is, in fact, their business architecture," said Stephen Elliot, program vice president, Management Software and DevOps at IDC.
