Digital transformation is a priority for enterprises looking to increase business agility by automating operations, delivering rich customer experiences, and launching new products and services. Today, building and sustaining a competitive advantage is linked not to size or strength but to the ability to change — to move quickly, adapt, and seize opportunities.
To be successful, organizations need to modernize the applications that their business depends on. The process replaces older technology stacks with cloud-native ones, which enable applications to be more scalable, fault-tolerant, and secure than their traditional counterparts.
