After the long generation of standalone to client/server, the trend for cloud and serverless computing is picking up and gaining momentum. The serverless world is being sold for more economic, efficiency and cost savings.
Traditionally software developers do not just focus their time on programming, but also need to take care of what is happening on the backend. Serverless immediate benefits are free software developers from performing no programming tasks. Serverless architecture is the future or not, we just need to see what is going on now and what has been adopted and what has been phased out by enterprises. For it to work, we need event-driven programming that one. Second, it will be what cloud service providers (CSP) who will keep persuading you to adopt, because they can sell function-as-a-service (FaaS) and charge models.
Enterprises regardless of size need to evaluate whether to follow and change while currently everything is working just fine. Eventually technology remains just invented to exist business, and it should be the business that evaluates for its own whether or not adopt for another round of the change or stick to current and existing road map to be.
Backend technology adoption is just one one aspect for the business, for the very fundamental bottomline, regardless of business you are in, whether multinational corporation to government agencies, is to know your customer you are serving. If you are purely for upgrade and migrate to follow others who did it, for sure you are not able to get any business return to it. Better stead mobilizing the resources you have and focus on the product improvement and customer services to make sure customers who used your product and services, continue to be happy to do business with you. Technology change is an endless journey, once you know where you are going and knowing how to align it with the business in hand or empowering you to do business you are attempting to be in, that is the business technology that every enterprise should have in mind.
Remember, serverless may not be for any business to get the most from it. You need to evaluate your business. Same goes for whatever proposed new technology, they are invented to solve some of the existing business technology, but may or may not be applicable to you after all.
Technology vendors will keep pushing what they want you to upgrade, migrate and so on, because that is their business. Once you know how to balance the changes in the market and evaluate it with your own goals and road map, that should be the way to make technology work for your business, not let endless technology drive you instead.
