Infrastructure is becoming increasingly involved in unprecedented areas of the modern enterprise. The focus of Infrastructure leaders is evolving far beyond technology elements like data centres, colocation and the cloud to include more about how an organisations infrastructure can support and enable business strategy. 

The impacts in the near future will be Serverless Computing, Artificial Intelligence, Network Agility, Death of the Data Centre, Edge Computing, Digital Diversity Management, Talent Management and Global Infrastructure. Nearly two-thirds of CTO’s say a lack of talent holds their organisation back, according to a survey from KPMG. This is never truer than the demand for Microsoft Azure, AWS, IBM Cloud and Google Cloud.


Severless Computing

Serverless Computing

Investigate ‘function platform as a service’(FPaaS), a software architecture that could preclude infrastructure management. It allows functions to run without having to explicitly provision or manage infrastructure. Without replacing containers or virtual machines, this can support utility logic, unpredictable demand and event-driven requirements.

Talent Management

Talent Management

Historically, Infrastructure were organised vertically, around a specific stack, Organisations still need depth of technical expertise, but better collaboration horizontally across teams too. Try to drive people beyond their stack and challenge them. IT Leaders must hack their culture and get those people out of their bubble.

Paid Qualifications

Paid Qualifications

Engineers and Infrastructure professionals like nothing more than getting some new badges! Upskill your workers and offer paid qualifications – this will keep your talent happy and ensure they develop with you and do not sit stagnant.

Infrastructure Observations

2020 accelerated remote work, expedited the migration to cloud and turned DevOps from best practice to essential function. “Hybrid” is the deployment norm as companies modernise their stack with cloud-native technologies, but realise that not everything can move off-premises. The winners of 2022 will be companies who embrace hybrid across their operations and products.
Migrating from monolithic to microservice and containerised architecutre will be a must for all the companies on their Digital Transformation journey. It's no longer an option. This is where the adoption of Kubernetes will be on the rise and when organisations will adopt multi-cloud, Terraform will be the ultimate choice to automate Infrastructre.
DataOps is on the rise. COVID has played a role, with WFH driving consumption of digital content, demanding a new level of automation for self-scaling, self-healing systems to meet demand. DevOps are developing Logging,
Monitoring, and Alerting systems – applying machine learning to predict incidents or outages, forecast capacity and improve planning.
