If you haven't already standardized and modernized your core business infrastructure, doing so now will help increase efficiency and cost savings that can help fund your cloud-native application initiative. How? By eliminating layers of complexity that drive up labor costs, downtime, training, and operational overhead. That complexity is largely caused by the growing number of configurations, operating systems and versions, and management tools found in the average datacenter.
By standardizing your operating environment, you dramatically reduce the number of variations in core technologies. This streamlines IT maintenance, support, and management, resulting in lower operating expenses through improved IT efficiency and productivity. And when you standardize on open source technologies, you can significantly reduce IT capital expenses while improving interoperability, reliability, and security, too.
Adding some additional cloud-like capabilities could further optimize the infrastructure supporting your production applications:
