As Container Adoption Grows, ROI Soon Follows

The majority of organizations are either using container technologies today or plan to do so soon, according to a recent survey from NetEnrich. Simply stated, containers enclose pieces of code in a layer of software that can be transported easily between computers. Many companies are motivated to invest in these solutions due to the anticipated budget savings, as most IT pros expect that containers will produce double-digit percentage savings on tech costs. Survey respondents also indicate that containers will improve IT infrastructure flexibility while increasing speed and productivity on the part of code developers. "Container adoption is on the rise and leading to cost savings and efficiency gains for many IT organizations," said Chris Joseph, vice president of product management and marketing at NetEnrich. "However, companies are still grappling with issues such as integration, security and management when it comes to container tech. This will likely continue until the skillsets of internal IT staff catch up to the market. In the meantime, companies are benefiting from the support of outside consultants and service providers." An estimated 200 IT pros took part in the research.
