Consistency is a cure for hybrid cloud complexity

Organizations are rapidly turning to the cloud to increase agility and drive faster innovation. It’s indisputable that cloud is here, but not all customers – especially complex or highly regulated organizations – are ready to move fully to public cloud.

Statistics show that service providers are integral to this digital transformation. According to our research, 89% of organizations will pay a premium for hybrid cloud implementation and management services.

To balance stability with agility, Microsoft approaches cloud as a model—not a place—and encourages enterprises to do the same. This cuts across infrastructure, applications, data, and people themselves; and requires a hybrid cloud model and services that are more than a connection point between assets.
