Building flexible, secure IT infrastructures on open hybrid cloud can offer 2.5X more value than public cloud only

What is an open hybrid cloud strategy?

An open hybrid approach allows you to integrate the best features and functions from any cloud, or traditional IT environment, and tap the unmatched pace and quality of innovations from the open source community.

The new generation of hybrid cloud provides a common platform across all of your cloud, on-premises, and edge environments. That means you can skill once, build once and manage from a single pane of glass. A hybrid cloud approach can offer up to 2.5x more value than a public cloud-only approach.2

Digital transformation is the critical path forward for government today and optimizing and managing your hybrid IT environment paves that path. It’s all about:

  • Decreasing complexity
  • Mitigating risks
  • Building and deploying apps consistently

75% of non-cloud applications will be moving to the cloud in the next 2 years¹ - implementing a hybrid cloud strategy can deliver multiple benefits to your agency and ultimately citizens. Want to explore an open hybrid cloud strategy?
