The Road to Hybrid Multicloud
By: Chris Kanthan
This IDC Perspective provides a framework and guidance for enterprise customers that would like to leverage cloud computing in their digital transformation initiatives. This document provides an overview of the benefits of cloud and walks the reader through the steps toward a hybrid multicloud architecture — from a single cloud to multiple clouds to hybrid multicloud.
"Thanks to the global pandemic, every enterprise is going through a dramatically accelerated digital transformation. Corporate executives must be nimble and agile enough to create novel business models, innovate new digital services, and turn adversity into opportunity. At the center of this transformation whirl is cloud computing. And the holy grail of cloud computing is hybrid multicloud, which provides infrastructure-agnostic view and unified management capability across all clouds and even legacy datacenters. While this is an idealistic vision, enterprises must gradually but steadily forge ahead on the road to hybrid multicloud," said Chris Kanthan, research manager at BuyerView, IDC.
