With more and more companies looking to capitalise on the operational and economic benefits of hybrid cloud, we wanted to take a closer look at the importance of adopting hybrid cloud strategies as part of wider IT infrastructure.
To discuss these benefits in more detail, and to help organisations make the business case for using hybrid cloud environments, we’ve been working with IT industry analyst house IDC to take a closer look at the rise of hybrid clouds and their growing importance in the market.
The first part of this research can be found in the IDC Infobrief below, which takes an overall look at hybrid cloud adoption and the drivers behind this. Some of the key figures include:
- 70% believe hybrid cloud is critical or very important to achieving business goals
- Integration with non-cloud resources is most important to cloud strategy success
- 64% of organizations identify their cloud strategy as “Hybrid”
Take a look at the full infobrief below for the rest of the data:
Next week we’ll share the full whitepaper from IDC, based on this research. The whitepaper also looks at what businesses need to do to ensure successful hybrid cloud deployment, vital for any company considering using the hybrid cloud.
