Hybrid cloud and multicloud are norms in Europe, with the focus as much on cross-cloud consistency, standardization, operations, and governance as it is on migration. Hybrid-cloud investments this decade center around optimizing cloud operations through ITSM, observability, AI/ML and automation, and self-driving autonomous infrastructure.
