Cloud Connectivity: The Crucial Bridge Between Enterprises and the Cloud

Authors: Pushkaraksh Shanbhag, Rijo George Thomas
Abstract

This IDC Perspective examines traditional cloud connectivity options currently available to enterprises and the limitations inherent in them. The report further explores emerging alternatives for more scalable, efficient, and secure cloud connectivity that can help enterprises fully realize the transformative potential of the cloud and the initiative that requires cloud enablement.

"The cloud has now become so critical as a transformation enabler that enterprises will need to relook, and possibly rearchitect, their network connectivity to the cloud to manage their growing cloud services portfolio in an efficient and scalable manner. Multicloud interconnectivity fabrics represent a more elastic, scalable, manageable, and secure means of enterprise–cloud connectivity for the future, and we believe enterprises will increasingly turn to such solutions for their cloud connectivity needs," says Pushkaraksh Shanbhag, senior research manager, IT and Business Services, IDC Asia/Pacific.
