The broad adoption of cloud technology has fueled large-scale digital transformation initiatives and changed the landscape of almost every industry.

By developing and deploying collections of components across a hyper-agile content services platform architecture, organizations can take advantage of container technology and consolidate data and content access. This cloud-native architecture is ideal for rapidly releasing innovative products and services and adapting swiftly to changes in the market.

Gartner foresees cloud application services (SaaS) rising from $94.8 billion in 2019 to $143.7 billion by 2022. Cloud application infrastructure services (PaaS) are also projected to show strong growth, from $19 billion in 2019 to $31.8 billion in 2022. Sid Nag, research vice president at Gartner, commenting on the anticipated growth, said

As cloud continues to become mainstream within most organizations, technology product managers for cloud related service offerings will need to focus on delivering solutions that combine experience and execution with hyperscale providers’ offerings. This complementary approach will drive both transformation and optimization of an organization’s infrastructure and operations.

Despite the many benefits that cloud technology offers, migrating business operations and content to the cloud can seem like a daunting project, especially trying to find a platform that combines rich functionality with extensive flexibility. A platform that provides straightforward setup and ease of use is another important factor.

Many organizations—especially businesses with high-volume data and content requirements, such as financial services — find that a cloud-native content services platform (CSP) delivers a higher level of flexibility than other cloud-only solutions, providing a modern, future-proof architecture and a framework for the rapid development and deployment of applications.

An Optimal Platform for Flexibility and Agility

Flexibility and agility are defining characteristics of a modern CSP architecture. Capabilities—such as fluid elasticity and extensive configurability—enable quick adaptation to rapidly changing workloads and responsive adjustment to varying business conditions.

Compute, memory, and storage demands are provisioned within a virtualized environment to accommodate needs as they arise. This inherent flexibility also makes it easy for organizations to design, develop, and deploy new cloud-based services and introduce innovative solutions to customers and clients.

Although the advantages of a cloud-native platform are evident, organizations often struggle with misconceptions around security, high-availability, functionality, and scale.
