From time to time, we invite industry thought leaders to share their opinions and insights on current technology trends on the IBM Systems IT Infrastructure blog. The opinions in these posts are their own, and do not necessarily reflect the views of IBM. Gartner forecasts worldwide public cloud revenue will grow 17 percent in 2020. While it’s clear that cloud is still being rapidly adopted, on premises and private cloud are growing as well. My team and I see this on a daily basis as we visit with enterprise clients. To quantify this information and measure its impact, IBM recently commissioned Forrester Consulting to evaluate how organizations develop and implement their IT infrastructure strategies. Forrester conducted an online survey of 350 global enterprise IT decision makers across industries to explore this topic.

DevOps aims to foster that collaboration, as well as improve application deployment times and quality. To succeed with DevOps, however, IT teams must be open to change. "DevOps is a culture different from traditional corporate cultures and requires a change in mindset, processes, and tools," writes Mikael Krief in the book Learning DevOps: The complete guide to accelerate collaboration with Jenkins, Kubernetes, Terraform and Azure DevOps.

In the end, what enterprises really want is a way to run any application on any cloud at any time. And Equinix, which operates one of the largest networks of datacenters on the planet, is hoping to make that happen. Over the past two decades, Equinix has steadily expanded the number of its facilities and its global reach to where it now has more than 200 facilities in more than 55 markets around the world. The company also has adapted to the rise of public clouds and other trends that are reshaping the IT industry.
