How Cloud Native is beneficial for your business

23 Aug, 2022

Covid19 pandemic rapidly changed the scenarios worldwide. One of the necessities which became more prominent was the trend of cloud computing. Due to the maximum of operations going online and remote working. In the past two years, companies are massively shifting their operations to the cloud and that has increased the adaption of cloud-native applications. Some of the benefits of adopting cloud technology are better efficiency, reduced cost, scalability, and saving time.

What is cloud-native?

According to Cloud Native Foundation, cloud-native technologies empower organizations to build and run scalable applications in dynamic environments. Cloud-native is a new approach used for building and maintaining software applications using cloud computing. The applications are wholly based on cloud architecture. It reaps the maximum benefit of cloud computing. The focus is on speed and agility for applications built with cloud-native. Unlike traditional applications, cloud-native applications don’t require any downtime for updation or repair. The full potential of 5G applications can be utilized by cloud natives.

Benefits of cloud-native for your business-

Speed

The most important advantage of cloud-native is its speed. Since everything is on a single platform response time is less. The application is divided into many microservices which are independently deployable services. So in case of a bug or error, it is easier and faster to fix the issue. Also, cloud-native applications use containers and containers are pieces of execution codes. Once the container is deployed it continues to do the same job without any change. Cloud-native applications have flexible architecture therefore adapting to the business needs is also a quick process.

Cost effective

In the case of the cloud-native applications being built over a single platform, there is no requirement for coordination between different platforms. The applications built on cloud-native architecture have significantly low costs for maintenance, development, and repair. There are already developed services available on the cloud, which can be reused by the developers reducing the cost of the application. In the case of cloud-native applications, it is a serverless and open source system that enables to pay as per use, reducing the cost considerably.

Customer experience

The end user expectation is a critical part that is taken into consideration, while application development. The concerns and feedback of the customer can be easily incorporated as updation is less time-consuming. The response time is also less which provides the customer continuous service with minimum disruption. The focus is on user experience and the maximum users are mobile users therefore the cloud-native application priority is on mobile from the development. Cloud-native applications provide scope for continuous improvement based on customer feedback. They provide a consistent experience to the user across public, private, and hybrid clouds.

Scalability

When the application is based on the cloud, it eliminates the need for hardware solutions. This provides the possibility for the developers to scale the application as and when required. Depending on the growth of the business, the application can be extended without any hassle. The other advantage is there is no disruption during the scale development process. Since microservices are running independently of each other. The resource allocation will be done as per the requirement.

Troubleshooting

When applications are down due to some error it creates a disruption. In the case of cloud-native applications, it becomes very easy to locate the error due to codes separately stored in microservices separately for different operations. After the problem is located it can be fixed in isolation without hampering other microservices. This makes troubleshooting in cloud-native applications quickly and without any downtime, which was not a possibility in traditional applications.

Cloud native-based applications offer other benefits like security, flexibility, reusability, and real-time analytics. Depending on the varied requirement of the industry, organizations have adapted these applications. The healthcare industry deals with a huge amount of data storage and data assessment. This is easily managed by cloud-native applications. Similarly, the cloud-native application enables collaboration and integration of different departments in logistic and supply chain management. The IT partner of your company assesses the requirements and useability of these applications for the business and guides you through them.
