More than ever, enterprise CIOs are turning to a multi-cloud strategy to help their organizations meet a variety of challenges. Managing remote workforces, meeting demands for greater efficiency, dealing with growing competitive pressures, the need to reduce costs, one way or another, are all drivers of strategic investment in the cloud. , in specific hybrid and multi-cloud. And matters are likely to stay that way for years to come.
Multi-cloud, and the connectivity that underpins it, are now critical to business success, enabling new opportunities, improving resource efficiency and increasing business agility. It’s an open secret that companies deploying more than one public cloud are more likely to see revenue growth than those just embarking on a cloud migration journey, or maybe still relying heavily on public cloud services. internal solutions.
This does not mean that there are no difficulties associated with multi-cloud. Nothing is further from reality. For starters, there’s the tricky business of choosing the correct mix of clouds and the right tools to support that mix. There is the question of the interconnection of the different clouds. CIOs also need to determine where it’s best to apply the cloud and where it makes sense to keep business information on-premises, perhaps for regulatory reasons. There are issues of scalability, risk management and digital sovereignty. You have to weigh the cost benefits against the known and unknown security challenges that are certainly lurking just around the corner.
That’s why it’s important for the CIO to pay attention to advances in the kind of technology that can make sense of multi-cloud and turn overwhelming complexity into manageable simplicity. Using cloud-native connectivity, for example, gives organizations not only better control of cloud environments, but also gives them a head start in exploiting new opportunities, integrating applications, and making the most of cloud computing. third party software and services. A cloud-native approach to networking and application development facilitates better collaboration with partners and customers, and generally leads to a more interconnected digital infrastructure.
