Adopting Multicloud — A Fact-Based Blueprint for Reducing Enterprise Business Risks

July 3, 2018

As organizations undergo digital transformation and continue to increase their cloud consumption, more and more organizations are finding that a “multicloud” environment is the new norm. According to IDC’s 2017 CloudView Survey, most cloud users are running more than one type of cloud deployment and work with more than one major public cloud provider (i.e., PaaS, IaaS, SaaS, private, hybrid, and public) — and this new world of “multicloud” comes with new challenges and new priorities. There’s a significant difference between merely adopting multiple types of cloud and having the skills and processes in place to manage a hybrid IT environment. This white paper highlights best practices used to thrive in a multicloud world across operations and management, shares data from IDC’s CloudView Survey and Business Value Research illustrating multicloud adoption and associated business outcomes, and analyzes market growth, vendor tools, and pitfalls to avoid.
