A recent press release states, “Leading enterprises are increasingly turning to the Cloud as the go-to platform for managing explosive data growth. Companies are shifting to hybrid and multi-Cloud architectures to improve IT efficiencies, access state-of-the-art applications and technology, and increase flexibility to meet changing business and user demands. A new report from the Business Performance Innovation (BPI) Network underscores that despite significant progress, companies are early in this transition to the Cloud and face major challenges, including the need for new Cloud skills, concerns about data geo-sovereignty and corporate policy compliance, security and the challenges of implementing a flexible multi-Cloud strategy where data can be moved freely to the Cloud of choice.”
The release goes on, “The report, entitled ‘Gain the Ability for Cloud Agility: Assessing Enterprise Capacity to Embrace a Multi-Cloud Strategy,’ incorporates in-depth interviews with top IT executives from corporations like Viacom, The Coca Cola Company, DHL, Embraer and others. DBM Cloud Systems, a rapidly emerging leader in intelligent management of Cloud data, sponsored the study. Download the study at http://www.bpinetwork.org/cloud-agility-report. Key findings in the report include: (1) A massive shift to hybrid-Cloud and multi-Cloud architectures is underway at leading corporations worldwide, and IT executives expect the transformation to accelerate. (2) A dramatic increase in unstructured data in the Cloud is being driven by a new generation of real-time applications and connected devices—and the desire to mine that data to extract greater intelligence and value.”
