In a post-pandemic world marked by economic shifts, geopolitical complexities, and talent shortages, businesses face the challenge of sustaining and expanding their application portfolios. Extensive investments have been made, with many applications slated for long-term use. However, in the face of rapid change and heightened customer expectations, the question arises: How can companies effectively secure, maintain, and scale their applications to align with evolving business needs?

With more than 50% of developers operating outside the tech sector, there is a growing need for a cloud solution that seamlessly caters to their innovative app-building capabilities. These developers may lack expertise in cloud-native skillsets, emphasizing the necessity for a solution that effortlessly "just works" straight out of the box.
