Welcome to the World of Multi-Cloud
In the world as we used to know it, when Amazon sold books and Microsoft software came in a box stuffed full of floppy disks, enterprise applications typically ran in a central, on-premises data center. Fast forward 25 years to a time when application growth is unprecedented and enterprise applications run from a wide range of cloud endpoints - some public, some private, some via SaaS delivery, some managed by you, some managed by others and so forth. Welcome to the world of multi-cloud.
Currently, every industry trend report identifies multi-cloud as a key strategy for most large organizations. However, as you already know or will soon come to know, this operating model brings with it a wide range of new challenges that must be addressed by IT leaders if this application delivery model is going to prove sustainable.
