Hybrid Cloud: The sooner the better
Implementing a hybrid cloud solution can spark both excitement and criticism amongst an organization, raising as many questions as it often answers. Companies will focus on how using the cloud will deliver increased agility, efficiency and productivity; but predicting the answers provided to clients is ever-changing depending on which Cloud Solution Provider is asked. As a result, many CIOs are grappling with complex 10-year roadmaps, and missing out on the ‘quick wins’ a hybrid cloud solution could deliver in the interim. Making small shifts to cloud solutions can be taken that will deliver immediate benefits and a much more manageable roadmap.
The future of how companies operate have and will continue to be significantly impacted by the introduction of cloud solutions like SaaS, as it creates a long-list of services that will spark true change in the universal acceptance of the cloud. The biggest change will be in the IT department; its role will change from that of a system builder to a broker of cloud solutions that empowers the rest of the company. This transition will usher in a new generation of IT, the full impact of which will be felt within the next five years. The only real certainty is the architecture of the future will look very different to how it appears today. In the meantime, the best and first step an organization can take to prepare for this change is to begin the adoption of a hybrid cloud solution that will help it optimize and cope with its legacy investments, while enabling agility for future projects.
