The future is multicloud

The idea that your cloud strategy can rely solely on one service provider is outdated. It’s not just thinking about the high-level infrastructure and platforms for the applications developers; what about your shadow IT estate? How can you manage the cloud sprawl?

Across every industry in every region, organisations are struggling to keep up with evolving business needs, as well as build on their existing digital investments. And after years of conversation around whether or not public cloud environments are suitable for enterprise workloads, the pandemic made it crystal clear that now the adoption of cloud is only a matter of how and when, rather than if. We’re also seeing the move towards multicloud, a strategy where a business leverages two or more cloud computing platforms to perform various tasks, accelerate dramatically.
