Business agility is required to enable aggressive digital transformation efforts to engage more deeply with customers and create disruptive business opportunities. Enterprises are investing in DevOps and multicloud architectures to support business agility but continue to emphasize the need for security and compliance. Enterprise IT buyers demand that vendors support multicloud portability, harness open source innovation, and enable agile business operations in a secure and cost-effective manner.
