All the new enterprise application development will adapt the modern best practice of DevSecOps and shift away from legacy virtual machines (VM) and toward much more cloud native containers and Kubernetes container orchestration. It is the mega trends, where one wave of technology nurtures a better one. History repeats it over and over again.
The future now is multi-cloud, which also means container intensive and it is based on Kubernetes orchestration, aka K8s. IBM bought RedHat a few years back. Almost all the vendors focus on cloud native products offering.
The last wave of private, public and hybrid cloud is over. Where the market now accepts multi-cloud, to avoid single cloud service providers locked-in. OpenStack for private cloud will continue to stay, with more new improvements on how to cater for running containers on top. With the world moving toward cloud and cloud native, so do the impact on the programming languages, where a new generation that is cloud native and cross platform will rise and eventually replace the last generation of programming language.
Unlike humans, where we always talked about multitasking, but in reality that is task-switching. Unlike computer which can really concurrent and multi instance operate and perform multitasking, as more enterprise adopt the new generation and new wave of best practice, include development of cloud native applications, setup for the seamless integration, delivery and automation of DevSecOps and value stream management (VSM), the productivity throughput we can expect is start at 100x faster than the previous generation.
Just like all the subject matters, you need to unlearn from the past, adopt the new learning, competency and capability for compete in the next wave of the world, as it transit toward fourth industrial revolution (4IR) industry 4.0, and you need to proactive adapt emerging technologies so you are operate based on that next waves of technologies to compete in the future.
