Shift To Multi-Cloud Architectures Requires New Data Management Approaches To Improve Cloud Flexibility And ROI, Says New Study

BPI Network Report Examines Growing Move to Cloud-First IT Strategies and Challenges in Realizing Full Benefits of Agility, Cost Efficiency and Compliance

SAN JOSE, Calif., Nov. 1, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Leading enterprises are increasingly turning to the Cloud as the go-to platform for managing explosive data growth.  Companies are shifting to hybrid and multi-Cloud architectures to improve IT efficiencies, access state-of-the-art applications and technology, and increase flexibility to meet changing business and user demands.

A new report from the Business Performance Innovation (BPI) Network underscores that despite significant progress, companies are early in this transition to the Cloud and face major challenges, including the need for new Cloud skills, concerns about data geo-sovereignty and corporate policy compliance, security and the challenges of implementing a flexible multi-Cloud strategy where data can be moved freely to the Cloud of choice.

The report, entitled "Gain the Ability for Cloud Agility: Assessing Enterprise Capacity to Embrace a Multi-Cloud Strategy," incorporates in-depth interviews with top IT executives from corporations like Viacom, The Coca Cola Company, DHL, Embraer and others. DBM Cloud Systems, a rapidly emerging leader in intelligent management of Cloud data, sponsored the study.

Key findings in the report include:

  • A massive shift to hybrid-Cloud and multi-Cloud architectures is underway at leading corporations worldwide, and IT executives expect the transformation to accelerate.
  • A dramatic increase in unstructured data in the Cloud is being driven by a new generation of real-time applications and connected devices—and the desire to mine that data to extract greater intelligence and value.
  • Enterprises face challenges in cost-efficiently and seamlessly migrating and replicating data across multi-Cloud environments, creating potential challenges for big data analytics, application performance, vendor lock-in, and regulatory compliance.
  • IT executives want to improve their ability to move data between Cloud platforms without manual reconfiguration in order to access Cloud-specific applications and/or capture lower priced Cloud services.
  • Data replication can be costly and complex and executives are ready to embrace solutions that enable them to improve their technical abilities and economics in this area.

"Most companies are moving to multi-Cloud andhybrid-Cloud environments that mix and match private and public Clouds with on-premise systems depending on specific needs," said Dave Murray, head of thought leadership for the BPI Network. "But these mixed models come with challenges. Our study underscores the need for enterprises to improve their agility to move data across Clouds to increase cost-efficiencies, drive better data analytics and performance, and ensure compliance."   

"The findings of this study are consistent with what we are hearing from our customers" said Dixon Doll, Jr., CEO of DBM Cloud Systems. "Our customers are looking for better Cloud orchestration and Cloud data management solutions; particularly the ability to selectively replicate data to the right Cloud end-points to access desired Cloud applications and services."

Agile has finally jumped the technology shark, expanding outside the software world. Enterprises are now increasingly adopting Agile practices across their organizations in order to successfully navigate the disruptive waters that threaten to drown them. In our quest for establishing change as a core competency in our organizations, this business-centric notion of Agile is an essential component of Agile Digital Transformation. In the years since the publication of the Agile Manifesto, the conn...
Enterprises are moving to the cloud faster than most of us in security expected. CIOs are going from 0 to 100 in cloud adoption and leaving security teams in the dust. Once cloud is part of an enterprise stack, it’s unclear who has responsibility for the protection of applications, services, and data. When cloud breaches occur, whether active compromise or a publicly accessible database, the blame must fall on both service providers and users. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Ben Johnson, C...

Enterprises are adopting Kubernetes to accelerate the development and the delivery of cloud-native applications. However, sharing a Kubernetes cluster between members of the same team can be challenging. And, sharing clusters across multiple teams is even harder. Kubernetes offers several constructs to help implement segmentation and isolation. However, these primitives can be complex to understand and apply. As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. Thi...

Further, tools to easily mount remote datasets and efficiently transfer...
