Cloud provider trends for 2022

Amir Rapson shares his predictions for 2022 about cloud providers looking for faster solutions for modernization.

Cloud Providers Look to Offer Faster Solutions for Modernization in 2022

In 2022, we’ll see a growing emphasis from cloud providers on everything “beyond the low hanging fruit” for cloud migration. The cloud journey is being treated more holistically. Migration to the cloud is not considered the last step, containerization is not a goal in itself, and modernization is what everyone is ultimately after. Another element is the breadth of the cloud migration, which aims to include all possible workloads. For example, AWS’ launch of their Mainframe Modernization Service is a great sign and a step in the right direction that will be followed by others. The cloud is maturing, and cloud providers will be looking to offer better and faster solutions for modernization, and everything that comes after “lift and shift”.

Companies Who Don’t Modernize Will Be Outpaced by Disruptive Startups

With more capital in the market and higher valuations of start-ups, these smaller, leaner companies in 2022 will be more aggressive, innovate faster, and can disrupt any market. Next year, incumbents will be forced to restore their innovation capabilities, and become faster in order to keep their leads. A significant portion of that will involve getting rid of the technical debt burden, reducing their legacy, and modernizing their infrastructure.
