Solstice 2019 Cloud-Native Trends

Every year, cloud-native experts at Solstice track industry and market patterns specific to important technology innovation. We then analyze and project the trends we see forming in the field and outline how they will inform our perspective in the coming year.

Last year we identified six trends that we defined as emerging within the cloud community. While we saw those trends as early predictions, last year’s cloud-native trends lived up to their billing as projections at the beginning of 2018 yet subsequently matured to wider adopted principles later in the year.

This year is no different. The next set of trends sheds light on key technologies every executive should be paying attention to along with important advances in methodology. Once again we are excited to share this report, and hope that it either validates the path you are on or inspires another perspective as you weigh your investments in 2019.
