Today’s migration to the cloud is business-driven, with enterprises recognizing the need for a customer experience that edges out the competition. Developing user-friendly technology will make a difference in whether companies thrive or wither in the age of digital transformation.
Many companies are recognizing the balance that comes with a hybrid cloud infrastructure. There are unique benefits to merging private and public cloud options:
Better flexibility: There is no one-size-fits-all approach to technology, and companies need to be able to determine which workloads and business processes function best in various environments. A hybrid solution allows for flexibility in choosing where to house different applications and workloads.
Including managed services as part of the hybrid mix also frees up IT personnel to focus on other priorities, and a hybrid setting allows for this process to be constantly in flux as enterprises conduct ongoing evaluations on their infrastructure.
Better security: The protection of company and customer data is a constant concern. A hybrid cloud environment allows for a high level of visibility and control of data. Companies can choose to house more critical data on-premise with a private cloud solution and then outsource lower-security items and cold data storage to a public cloud provider.
When cloud first came on the scene, there was a lot of concern about security. IT professionals are learning ways to mitigate risk, including robust security agreements with cloud vendors. They also now know that cloud data centers are often more heavily protected with security measures that outperform any at an on-site data center.
Improved customer experience: Personalization is the buzzword of the current customer experience. Hybrid solutions make it easier to meet and exceed the pace of your competition because they have the ability to get applications to market faster and improve the ways you interact with your customers. From personalized pop-up ads to content that solves a specific problem, cloud technology helps you build a relationship with your customer.
Opportunities for collaboration: Companies have an increased need for employees in different geographic locations to collaborate on projects and share files. Cloud solutions make this easy and convenient without compromising security.
One of the best advantages of a hybrid solution is that it helps to propel your digital transformation forward. Flexibility and agility without sacrificing performance or speed results in significant improvements in productivity and cost savings for your company.
