Enable IT-as-a-service for multicloud
More than 80% of companies have adopted a multicloud strategy. The recent pandemic may have slowed some of the transformative efforts, but CIOs are continuing to invest in Multicloud, as evident by the latest IT budgets. This is a sign that adopting multiple clouds has clearly demonstrated business benefits; however organizations are still struggling to operate it efficiently. This has slowed progress and diluted its value, despite the optimism.
Critical challenges remain. Unexpected costs, security compliance, technology and operational silos, performance and availability guarantee and standardized tools or processes are commonly cited concerns.
