Posted in Insights


The early days of 2019 are perfect for planning, scheming, dreaming—and predicting.

  2. Serverless Technologies. More applications that used to run on virtual servers will transition to serverless technologies to meet increasing client demands. We'll see a rise in the adoption of container-based production environments, which will thin out in number as a handful take the lead in their appropriate niche.
