A Forrester Consulting thought leadership paper commissioned by Capgemini and Red Hat

Achieve efficiency, agility, and sustainability with containerized applications.

Amid today’s relentless pace of enterprise evolution, innovation is not just a priority; it’s a survival imperative. Technology-enabled innovation is at the top of many organizations’ 2023 agenda. The cloud is no longer just an alternative data center — adoption of cloud-native technologies is critical to organizational success.

Stepping onto the center stage of this technological revolution is containerization. It’s not just a buzzword; it’s a paradigm shift. From orchestrating complex systems to propelling agile-plus-DevOps practices, containerization is supercharging businesses, pushing the boundaries of what’s possible.

With IT operations contributing an average of 26% to organizational scope 1 and 2 emissions, sustainability is no longer a nice to-have — it’s mission-critical.1 By boosting energy efficiency and extending infrastructure lifespan, containerization is primed to redefine the concept of a sustainable cloud strategy. The connection may not be obvious, but it’s profound — and it’s high time we explored it.

Red Hat and Capgemini commissioned Forrester consulting to explore the layers of the containerization landscape, illuminating the path to a future where innovation, efficiency, and sustainability reign supreme. In this study, Forrester surveyed 212 IT decision-makers at large organizations in North America and Europe to explore this topic. The study data show how partnerships can be critical to enabling such efforts.
