Undeniably, the latest technological innovations, including the cloud, mobile, and big data have transformed the way we execute our business chores. In tandem to these advancements, potential opportunities have also ascended that are consistently meeting their prioritized needs while boosting a higher customer satisfaction level.
Precisely, complexities linked with conventional IT systems were the major obstacle to right decision-making and innovation, but the arrival of the cloud has undeniably helped in overcoming all such difficulties. The three known cloud models – public, private and hybrid cloud – are speeding up the pace of application/information transactions.
Opt for a Robust Strategy to Leverage Market Opportunities
CEOs are considering the cloud to gain operational excellence while slashing redundant expenses. Well, the operational proficiency and promises of business agility linked with the cloud has the potential to improve the functionality of organizations. For all these reasons, organizations are looking forward to move their applications to cloud-based platform, backed by an adept app-centric methodology.
Among all the cloud models, the hybrid cloud is the most preferred choice of CEOs. This is what the current market situation and researchers predicts.
According to the Right Scale 2015 State of the Cloud Report, ‘approximately 82% of businesses have a hybrid cloud hosting solution’ 74 percent up the level of 2014.
Significance of Hybrid Strategy
This strategy enables businesses to gain control over their deployed cloud applications without sacrificing on network availability, performance and security services across the complete hybrid environment. It also provides some of the important services in order to ensure your apps remain seamlessly available and stay protected across the entire hybrid environment. This, in turn, allows IT administrators to quash unwanted risks while catering to security essentials both on-premises and in the cloud.
According to one of the studies conducted by a leading research institution, ‘a majority of companies (both big and small) have identified the ability to set and impose stringent cloud security policies as the best method to shut down the cloud security gap’.
Moreover, it enables companies across all verticals to confidently provide the critical delivery services for their critical applications irrespective of the fact where they are deployed or what cloud platform they are making use of.
The other major benefit of this strategy is it gives you a quick insight of legacy environments and software-defined architectures and increases interoperability between the same. On the top of it, managing incongruent, multi-cloud environments become quite easy.
