As business becomes more digitized, the whole organization is more aware than ever of the importance of IT. Adding to the awareness trend is cloud. The ability for any line of business to procure an online service on demand has made IT even more notable to the broader business.
The challenge is many workloads are being spun up without a broader strategy. Human nature being what it is, we love a fast solution to even the most complex problems and often have to be forced into thinking about long-term impacts.
That’s why I like communicating the virtues of a hybrid cloud – it’s the long-term IT strategy we’ve been waiting for.
Customer interest in hybrid is growing by the day, but when I meet with IT and business managers there remains a lot of uncertainty over the technical aspects of hybrid. While business leaders don’t need to become overly technical, it is certainly in their interest – and the organization’s – to get more involved with the hybrid cloud strategy.
