Once a cloud initiative has been executed to the point of full operation, enterprises might consider their migration complete. But cloud technology isn’t static, it’s constantly evolving. And considering that 80%–90% of companies today rely on some form of cloud operation, when cloud technology shifts, the odds are high that it will affect your business.
Such a shift is occurring right now: The modern IT estate is moving towards the flexibility of hybrid cloud systems, employing a mixture of one or more providers, across cloud configurations and on-premises systems. It’s a technological transition that carries inherent risks—risks that can quickly erase the benefits that led a business to consider migration in the first place.
