Transformation in the Age of the 3rd Platform: The Role of Cloud Architecture

December 2, 2016

IDC Technology Spotlight

Cloud, as one of the key transformative forces of the 3rd Platform, is impacting all areas of IT supply and delivery. Organizations across industries are projected to shift steadily toward cloud-first strategies to enable digital transformation, drawing on the huge increase in the number and diversity of services available in the market. This IDC Technology Spotlight examines the role of cloud architectures in the form of platform-as-a-service (PaaS) technologies provisioned publicly or made available for on-premise enterprise operation in the increasingly more sophisticated processes of application development, deployment, and life cycle management. The paper highlights technology available from Pivotal that is designed for the development and management of cloud-native applications.
