Hybrid & Multi-Cloud, Automation, & Platform Engineering: The Wave of the Future

The report highlights the rise of hybrid and multi-cloud infrastructure, with networking set to play a key part in enabling the evolution. For organizations to deploy their networking infrastructure quickly and efficiently in a complex cloud environment, there is a growing need for solutions that can seamlessly connect different environments and enable automation and orchestration.

In networking, key developments that will support the shift to hybrid and multi-cloud architectures include increased API use, the adoption of low-code programming approaches, and efforts to implement Network as a Service (NaaS) capabilities to accelerate and streamline how internal services are consumed. As a result, both infrastructure as code (IaC) and platform engineering practices are key priorities going forward.
