Rescuing Hybrid Cloud from Disillusionment

Hybrid Cloud has quickly emerged as the obvious Cloud solution for organisations that can’t put everything into Public Cloud. However, despite its benefits, some are calling out that Hybrid Cloud doesn’t live up to their expectations. The hype associated with Cloud computing has long been inescapable, and only continues to increase as Cloud solutions become increasingly accessible. Even organisations yet to adopt Cloud technology are typically considering their Cloud options, and more often than not it’s viewed as a “when”, not “if”, decision. Indeed, a recent CIO survey highlights Cloud as their second highest priority in 2016, with infrastructure and data centre ranking fifth, and security at seventh1.

With so much positive perception, why have some analysts declared Hybrid Cloud computing as sliding into the Trough of Disillusionment2?

Why is Hybrid Cloud perceived as losing favour, when it’s become abundantly clear that organisations will need a mixture of on-premises and Public Cloud services? Is the perception valid? Or is it a case of Hybrid Cloud moving beyond the hype and maturing into a robust platform for growth? Is it simply the age old process of technology reinvigoration through cleared definition, realistic expectations, and the application of robust management to extract the full value of the investment?

This paper explores the barriers that organisations have faced with Hybrid Cloud, and the capabilities you need to develop to unlock the technology’s full potential.
