Organizations too often invest in resources to maintain their own hardware and operating systems – procuring and maintaining hardware, patching software, etc. – which results in undifferentiating work that drags on the bottom line.
Nobody wants to produce boring work, and everyone wants to work efficiently. By examining your data needs, opening yourself up to new solutions, you might discover a whole new customer-centric approach, one that features a hybrid cloud strategy.
We recently published a white paper on how a hybrid approach blends on-premise infrastructure with cloud-based storage capabilities. This reduces your technical debt while maintaining some of your most critical legacy applications.
But you have to make the first step in shedding old workflows and adopting new ones – ones that will keep you in the fast-paced marketplace. That’s easier said than done. The white paper explains how a hybrid cloud strategy can solve some of your most significant tech challenges.
One of the many key areas that a hybrid cloud strategy becomes invaluable is when organizations grow, and so does their tech investment. As teams start to implement one-off solutions to their challenges, eventually data sprawls and tools become cumbersome to manage. Hybrid cloud providers such as Microsoft Azure and Amazon Web Services offer a number of resources that bridge the gap between efficiency and data storage. This eliminates the risk of having tech that isn’t integrated produces duplicates in data and in time spent – creating waste. The hybrid strategy eliminates draining resources where you don’t have to.
Carving Out Capabilities
The beauty of the hybrid strategy is you can pick and choose what to move as it relates to what’s best for your business. This means there are countless ways to customize a strategy that optimizes your data, provides a consistent architecture across environments, and improves efficiency in your organization.
For any cloud-aspiring or already cloud-intensive enterprise, embracing a hybrid cloud strategy boils down to finding the right collection of cloud technologies and tools that makes the organization faster. Embracing this strategy will point your business towards the future – and discarding pesky technical debt and decreasing any vulnerabilities to disruption in your category.
