5 advantages of using cloud-native architecture in your business.

Mar 24, 2021

1. Better customer experience.

Building a great customer experience requires you to ship new features faster and keep iterating continuously. API-based integration is the predominant way to connect huge-sized enterprise data stores with small front-end apps. This gives companies the benefit of not having to abandon their decades of investment in legacy platforms, and instead breathe new life into those systems by extending their usage with mobile and web applications.

2. Improve your timings.

The faster your company can conceive, build, and ship more value to its customers, the more likely it is to succeed and avoid disruption in today’s rapidly changing world. Whether it’s with build automation, test automation, or deployment automation, the software delivery pipeline has become faster and more predicable.

3. Increasing flexibility.

A well-architected, cloud-native system is truly independent of its operating environment. When your services have been modularised, deployed on containers and run on open-source technologies, your investment in the cloud is ready to shift and adapt to a rapidly changing market. Moving to the cloud is already a significant change from traditional systems, but innovations and disruptions will continue to emerge. Cloud development needs to be seen as a constant iterative process always adapting to changes in both the company and the cloud platform.

4. Access to new tools and services.

In the cloud, you only pay for what you use and don’t have to buy anything upfront. Also, in a cloud-native architecture you can try new instance types, databases and tools – whatever you need with minimal cost, risk, and effort. Cloud Providers operate at insane economies of scale, which means you can access cutting-edge infrastructure for your company and you can take advantage of tools at a fraction of what it would cost to deploy these in your own data center. Exactly what you need for rapid innovation and experimentation.

5. Having the best partners to accomplish it.

Unlocking the real benefits of cloud requires more than just the lift-and- shift of your IT estate to a cloud provider. To deliver real business value, to improve the agility of the business, and to lower the cost of IT, requires a different mindset.
