Unified Hybrid Cloud Will Be Key to Successful Digital Transformation
Organizations of all types are committed to the potential of cloud to transform how they do business, with adoption of external cloud services nearly ubiquitous at this point. However, the realities and challenges of cloud execution see most businesses choosing not to go ‘all in’ on public cloud and instead turning to hybrid cloud strategies to get the most from their IT operations. The requirements of the specific applications define the value they receive from both on-premises and off-premises environments.
For hybrid cloud deployments to successfully support both next-generation and more traditional application architectures, they must be built to provide consistency across APIs, management, orchestration, a common data layer and other components, both on- and off-premises. Meeting the architectural challenges for successful ‘unified’ hybrid cloud is the next big cloud challenge facing businesses.
