Enterprises have dramatically increased their use of cloud in the last two years – and cloud has emerged as a positive force for change. But there are still barriers to adoption.

More than 50% of organizations surveyed increased their usage of cloud because of the pandemic, and 92% accelerated faster than anticipated, according to Microsoft’s Hybrid & Multicloud Perceptions Survey.[1] Furthermore, more than 60% of customers plan further increases over the next 12-24 months, the survey found.

And yet Gartner reports that 50% of organizations surveyed will delay migration to cloud due to lack of insufficient cloud IaaS skills.[2]

The list of hybrid and multi-cloud challenges facing IT and business leaders is a long one:

  • Managing the existing IT estate and the complexities of a hybrid, multi-cloud landscape
  • Expanding and changing security, compliance, and resiliency requirements
  • Integration and data management requirements across the landscape
  • Governance across the expanded ecosystem
