Tech & Work
After moving traditional workloads to public cloud, most customers realize they must replace many of them with cloud-native alternatives to reap the full benefits. Technology product management leaders must deliver cloud-native offerings now to capture business opportunities and avoid irrelevancy.Cloud-native solutions require skill sets that most vendors of cloud-related services do not possess in quantity.
Customers with older workloads in public cloud are transforming to cloud-native architectures faster than anticipated, straining vendor resources.
The market is beginning to de-emphasize cloud-based solutions built with traditional, monolithic (Mode 1) software architectures.
Technology product management leaders building and marketing cloud-based solutions must:
Invest in acquiring cloud-native skills at scale by developing and onboarding talent.

Position your products and services for the "cloud-native wave" that follows the "lift-and-shift" migration phase.
