Is de hybride cloud een utopia?

De voordelen van hybride cloudomgevingen zijn voor de meeste organisaties wel duidelijk. Maar de integratie van verschillende platformen, leveranciers en interne gebruikers blijft vragen opleveren. Over veiligheid en wendbaarheid bijvoorbeeld. In een rondetafelgesprek georganiseerd door IBM gaan drie bedrijven die leven in de cloud, de discussie aan over onderling vertrouwen.

Nu de overstap naar de cloud niet meer gewaagd maar noodzakelijk is

Het is geen geheim dat vele organisaties achterlopen op de consument bij de adoptie van de cloud. Hun terughoudendheid is begrijpelijk. Twijfels over de veiligheid van data, over compliance en het verlies van de controle over IT-diensten die voorheen onlosmakelijk met een organisatie verbonden waren, zijn moeilijk weg te poetsen in slechts enkele jaren tijd. Toch dwingen recente marktontwikkelingen organisaties ertoe over die twijfels heen te stappen.

Next year’s roadmap for the IT-department

The IT department needs to deliver the required infrastructure otherwise they are only seen as a cost center that can’t bring value to the business. Therefore the next step that occurs is that the IT department is going to shop for a kind of cloud management or orchestration tool which can deliver the requested services smooth and swiftly.

Agile environments do need Architecture as well!

Agile is here to stay. The ability to deliver much faster solutions in a culture of collaboration and empowerment is highly attractive and will be the standard way of work in the near future for nearly all IT Development. Both for Applications and Infrastructure.

In essence, it is all IT Automation!

Agile, Continuous Delivery, SW defined environments, Cloud and DevOps. Paradigms, which have been around for some time now in the IT world. A lot has been published, however not everybody seems to realize that all these highly promising developments are based on a single foundation ==> IT Automation.
