Gartner predicts that we will see 75% of mid-size and large organizations adopt a multicloud or hybrid IT strategy this year.
Cloud-based applications are increasing rapidly as enterprises adopt software-as-a-service (SaaS) and cloud-native principles to accelerate digital business. Enterprises are already looking to integrate artificial intelligence (AI), the Internet of Things (IoT) and edge computing to push the second-generation digital business forward and use innovation to drive real competitive advantage.
The issue is that many enterprises still don’t understand how to operate their multicloud estates in a way that fosters both agility for value creation and operational efficiency!
Cloud has the scope to increase business flexibility and, if properly managed, even reduce costs and operational expenses through more granular consumption models. At the same time, the introduction of DevOps best practices can work to optimize software development, deployment and operations – increasing the product quality for end users. A multicloud adoption and management plan, however, is critical to optimally address business flexibility and stay competitive.
A trusted partner can help an enterprise identify bottlenecks and advise on the best approach to support business outcomes within the flexibility of a cloud-native mindset.
