The overwhelming complexity of multicloud has created well-known challenges for organizations as they implement new technologies. Despite these obstacles, the pressure to deliver seamless customer experiences has never been higher. And while assuring application performance is top of mind for all IT and business leaders, organizations don’t have an unlimited budget to do so. Application performance must be managed economically, which is why many organizations are looking to third-party platforms to assist them with managing trade-offs between performance, cost, and compliance.
Driven by an acute need for IT modernization, organizations often require multiple cloud deployments to satisfy the demands of multiple applications and departments. In fact, we recently found that more than 8 in 10 IT professionals expect workloads to move freely across clouds. Moreover, as we recently revealed through Turbonomic’s 2019 State of Multicloud report, which surveyed over 800 IT professionals, 32 percent of respondents reported using two cloud platforms, while 29 percent use three or more.
Today’s CIO needs to be a change agent. Leading companies count on CIO’s to shift the value of IT from “keeping the lights on” to innovating. They are measured on impacting the differentiation of their company and its position in the marketplace.
As someone who thrives on solving complex challenges, the release of version 6.2 means more excitement and more opportunity to do something powerful for the industry at large. The growth of hybrid ecosystems and containerization has continued to drive more opportunity, bringing with it more complexity. That complexity comes from both operational challenges, and with the cost challenges as more workloads move to the public cloud and the IT world embraces a new way to manage their workloads.
The excitement in our industry around the future of IT is incredible. That said, this excitement is also bringing with it an increased complexity as you bring new products and technologies into the hybrid environment. It can be said that hybrid cloud is the new cloud, and multi-cloud is an undeniable reality as more and more customers choose to embrace best-of-breed infrastructure choices for specific workloads.
