Moor Insights & Strategy: Hybrid IT Helps Businesses Navigate Through Digital Transformation

In this era of digital disruption, businesses must be more agile to capture opportunities. Many viewed cloud computing technology as the way to do this, promising to address agility, scalability, and cost. But in moving to the cloud, many found that its security, compliance, and performance did not fully meet their needs. Additionally, previous common thought was public cloud is less expensive than private cloud. We now know that is not true in all cases. Savvy businesses realize hybrid IT, which includes both off-premises and on-premises services, enables better agility. After initial experience with public cloud offerings, businesses learned that many workloads are best hosted on-premises, primarily due to security, compliance, performance, control, and cost issues.
