Why Read This Report

Given a world where infrastructure is now software based (including containers, composable infrastructure, and more), administrators need skill sets common among application developers. While some infrastructure and operations (I&O) professionals have started this journey, many are still in early stages. This report offers guidance to administrators who are learning to manage infrastructure-as-code (IaC) and examines what application developers can learn from tried-and-tested admin practices. This is an update of a previously published report; Forrester reviews and revises it periodically for continued relevance and accuracy.
