Traditionally, organizations have been forced to adapt their applications and operating processes to public cloud models in order to recognize the full benefits. This led to mixed results as legacy applications struggle to align fully to cloud models, particularly when using lift-and-shift migration methodologies.

Because of this, the balance of power is shifting from cloud providers to customers seeking value from solutions that include both centralized and distributed cloud models. The “internet of things,” edge computing, 5G, hybrid work requirements and other use cases are driving this shift.

Gartner expects that cloud will not only be a technological approach for delivering infrastructure and applications, but will also serve as the key driver of information technology modernization and business innovation when and where the customer requires it.
