Quadrant Knowledge Solutions defines CNADS as “the services that consist of solutions and methodologies for creating, deploying, and managing applications that are cloud-native, agile, low cost, and highly scalable while prioritizing security measures and compliance. These services leverage technologies such as containers and microservices to provide scalability and security throughout the software development lifecycle (SDLC) and integrate DevOps practices to automate processes and reduce time-to-market, and scalability ensuring applications can efficiently handle varying workloads. These services enhance software development and deployment cycles, deployment frequency, and the quality and relevance of software releases to enable better alignment with business objectives. Thus, organizations attain effective legacy modernization, operational efficiency, superior customer experience, scalability, and flexibility which are necessary for adapting to evolving changes across multi-cloud environments in the cloud-native market.”

Traditionally, applications were developed through monolithic approach in which they were created in a rigid technology stack that limited the scope of upgradation, scalability, integrations, and development agility. This resulted in longer development cycles and difficulty in adapting to the changing business needs. The cloud-native approach to application development introduces flexibility for the developers to select, replace, upgrade, and remove different elements of an application individually. This ensures the creation of adaptable applications that can be upgraded according to the business requirements. The shift to cloud-native development not only enhances productivity, but also ensures that developers can dedicate their efforts to innovation rather than operational intricacies.
