The cloud offers undeniable benefits and options, allowing organizations to reduce IT complexity while increasing scalability, agility and flexibility. However, a hands-off approach to management can result in wasted resources and unexpected costs.
A key component of any hybrid strategy is a flexible policy for determining where to place workloads. The important thing is to establish criteria that define when one or the other is better for a particular workload. Factors such as cost, security, availability, regulatory compliance and performance will come into play.
Skill sets, processes and culture should also be considered as the adoption of cloud platforms, and will often require improvements to IT operations. Overall, this strategy should focus on implementing best practices and updated approaches to managing the environment.
