Rightscale just released their brand new 2016 State of the Cloud Survey with some interesting insights. It affirms what many other reports have concluded: Cloud Adoption is growing and
Hybrid Cloud is the preferred strategy in enterprises.
71% of companies are using hybrid cloud environments. It makes sense: for Cloud Apps to be truly useful, they need access to internal systems. That’s just common sense. We see our customers choosing hybrid cloud for many reasons but the most important one is:
Business processes running in the cloud are far more effective if they’re integrated with important data in business systems such as HR systems, databases and authentication systems.
These systems won’t go to the Cloud overnight for sure and maybe not for years. Hybrid Cloud is then obvious. If you’re a CIO, you can take an incremental approach and start seeing benefits quickly without having to move internal business systems and data wholesale to the cloud.
Our customers are increasingly taking advantage of this approach. We provide a Database Connector, secure Active Directory/LDAP support, Microsoft Azure AD, SAML for single sign on, a File Connector so you can save files to a network drive, and a Google Apps Connector so you can update a Google Sheet and/or upload files to Google Drive.
