Why Read This Report

For digital business models to evolve and succeed, infrastructure and operations (I&O) teams must disrupt their traditional infrastructure architecture strategies with infrastructure-as-code (IaC). This includes investing in not only hybrid cloud but also containers, composable infrastructure, and the automation to support these workloads, no matter where they live. "Unicorns" such as Amazon, Facebook, and Google have long relied on IaC for production. As we hurtle toward ubiquitous internet-of-things (IoT) and edge computing, a holistic strategy for IaC becomes more important to enterprises than ever. This is an update of a previously published report; Forrester reviews and revises it periodically for continued relevance and accuracy.
