Crossing the chasm into the age of hybrid IT

Hybrid IT architectures bring important benefits to organizations such as agility/time to market, cost savings, and flexibility. These benefits are fueling the hybrid revolution, with industry watchers from Gartner to the Harvard Business Review reporting that three-quarters of enterprises have hybrid cloud deployments today.

Along with the benefits, however, hybrid IT also brings challenges, including less visibility, less control, and greater need for optimization. The complexity of multiple clouds, networks, service providers, SLAs, application sprawl, and end users everywhere all combine to hinder the application and network visibility needed to ensure optimal performance and a consistently great experience for end users. Such consistency is essential for employees to work effectively, and for the hybrid enterprise to perform at its peak and achieve its maximum business potential. To fully capitalize on the benefits of the cloud, companies are finding that first they must conquer many challenges in the transition from an on-premises model to the “new normal” of the hybrid enterprise.
