Overcome These 7 Challenges to Optimize Your Hybrid Multi-cloud Journey

The Hybrid Cloud / AI Nexus

If you are reading this, you are likely interested in tech trends, digital transformation, and how to leverage data to drive your results. We live now in a world where we are daily seeing news reports, interviews, and some click-bait-worthy social media posts on the rapid emergence of generative AI and its ramifications for our society.

Rather than focus on generative AI and the current focus on what may very well be classified as non-commercial AI, the shift is towards enterprise AI.

The premise is that AI and Hybrid Cloud have a transformative nexus. Hybrid Cloud has gone from one of the architectural choices for the enterprise to now being the predominant architecture for the enterprise, with nearly three-quarters of enterprises adopting cloud using a hybrid/hybrid multi-cloud approach.


A hybrid cloud is characterized by its ability to scale across edge, core, and cloud. To provide a standard set of skills where you can build it once and deploy it anywhere. This has significant business value as it eliminates silos, consolidates and optimizes skill sets, and adds speed to operations. What if you could change the ratio of 70% of your ITOps team spending time keeping the lights on and 30% of their time driving innovation to 30/70?

IBM Chairman and CEO Arvind Krishna recently spoke to this AI/Hybrid Cloud nexus. They identified Hybrid Multi-Cloud as having up to 2.5x the business value of a single cloud adoption model. In reality, enterprises will have workloads in more than one cloud and on-premises for various reasons, including security, cost, scale, governance, and data privacy.

AI is at an inflection point… akin to the Internet, mobile, and cloud. Estimates are as high as nearly $16T in improved productivity globally as measured by GDP by 2030.

Hybrid Cloud is the new design center for the enterprise, and it is also the right architecture to enable AI in the enterprise.  The impact on IT operations, Dev/Ops, productivity, enterprise processes, customer care, cyber security, and more is impossible to ignore.

We would love to talk to you about how we can co-create these outcomes with you via the right hybrid/hybrid multi-cloud architecture as you seek to improve security, drive operational simplicity, control costs and enhance your sustainability metrics.

Hybrid cloud: the time is right, and the time is now.
