If you have read the first article in our series on Hybrid Cloud, you already know that Hybrid Cloud is an immensely popular solution for enterprises who are having a hard time choosing between an on-premises solution and a Cloud native one. And Hybrid Cloud is getting even more popular as companies realize that the Cloud is an essential part of future IT.
You might have read somewhere that Hybrid Cloud can be a best-of-both-worlds solution for companies hesitant to embrace a fully Cloud Native environment. The Economic Times, for instance, describe Hybrid Cloud as the ideal future product for business leaders who want to keep up with the times: “Hybrid cloud is the right ecosystem for business leaders seeking to keep their critical data protected, as they achieve business agility and leverage cost-saving efficiencies”.
Maybe you already know that today a lot of the IT innovation goes through Cloud. In fact, Gartner in their ebook “Top Strategic Technology Trends for 2022” predict that by “2025, cloud-native platforms will serve as the foundation for more than 95% of new digital initiatives – up from less than 40% in 2021”. It follows that at this point, not falling behind your competitors requires some amount of Cloud fluency – and a Hybrid solution can provide a good starting point.
This article outlines and goes behind even more reasons why Hybrid Cloud might be just the solution to get your business safely into the future. Read along, subscribe to our content flow, and feel free to contact us at CLOUDEON with your questions or comments.
Post Covid Composability and Hybrid Cloud
As the pandemic has foreshadowed, a new era of constantly changing climates in politics and economics means that businesses need to adapt to change and risks faster. A Gartner CIO Agenda survey from 2021 showed that those who change their business model to be more flexible and less stuck in specific patterns of working fare far better than their competitors.
‘Business composability’, one of the buzzwords of the new era, handles this demand by building a modular and flexible business model, in which everything from team compositions to IT tools are built and put together in modules. The modules can then be detached and put together in new constellations and patterns according to changing needs and circumstances.
This potential for adaptability exits inherently in a lot of the Cloud solutions available today. They are built to be easily scalable and to be customized to help customers automate and optimize their IT solutions. Hybrid Cloud especially has a modular character as it is made to build bridges and fuse different IT solutions from on-premises to public Cloud or Multi Cloud.
Maybe AWS or Azure offers a product that would be beneficial to your specific IT landscape, but you also use Google Cloud and want to keep some things on-premises.
No problem – Hybrid Cloud solutions are made to connect those different ‘modules’ as seamlessly as possible. This gives you the freedom to choose from the relevant solutions and combine them to give the best possible outcome for your enterprise.
In short: Hybrid Cloud solutions not only hold the potential to build a bridge between the fast and scalable Cloud reality and your familiar on-premises environment, but also align with predictions for the near future of the global market. By being highly customizable and easily adaptable, Hybrid Cloud solutions are ideal for enterprises who want to charge into the future with confidence that they can bend and not break.
Cloud Native – but not Cloud fundamentalists!
At CLOUDEON – part of Devoteam our outlook is Cloud native. That does not mean, however, that we are Cloud fundamentalists who fail to see the benefits of going Hybrid Cloud if it fits your business model or field of work. Your reasons to want to keep some applications or systems running on-premise might be practical or might have to do with compliance – no matter what, you should be sure that the decisions you are making for the future of your IT solutions are fully informed and beneficial for your company and your team.
