F5 State of Application Services Research Highlights Key Opportunities to Scale and Accelerate Digital Transformation
Sixth Annual Report Finds IT and Business Process Automation Growing With Multi- and Hybrid-Cloud Architectures
F5 Networks announced the availability of its 2020 State of Application Services report. This year’s survey showed that many organizations are starting to realize the benefits of increased scale and velocity of application deployment in their businesses. This value, however, can bring significant complexity as organizations maintain legacy infrastructure while increasingly relying on multiple public and private clouds, implement modern application architectures, and face an evolving and sophisticated threat landscape.
“Applications are not just the most valuable asset in the modern enterprise, they are the vehicle organizations rely on to deliver differentiated digital experiences to their customers”
At the same time, organizations are adopting more application services designed to accelerate deployment in public cloud and container-native environments, like service mesh and ingress control. Survey data indicates this trend will accelerate as organizations become proficient in harnessing the data their application ecosystem delivers—creating advanced analytics capabilities and better business outcomes.
