My opinion is that this quote from Gartner will be key in filtering the companies that will succeed or fail at the end of 2021 :
Organizations are often dragged down by “organizational debt,” which includes technical, process, data, architecture, talent, security and social debt. Collectively this debt affects value proposition and brand. The cause is an extensive and expensive set of business processes underpinned by a patchwork of technologies that are often not optimized, lean, connected or consistent.
Below my favorite quotes from the materials above:
“Organizations will realize that the monolith never died, and microservices were never a solution for every problem. “
“Organizations that don’t embrace these new DevOps practices will risk becoming irrelevant in a post-COVID-19, digital-heavy world.”New Relic
“Organizations that are prepared to pivot and adapt will weather all types of disruptions.”
“Hyperautomation is irreversible and inevitable. Everything that can and should be automated will be automated.”Gartner
