Today’s CIOs need to focus on deciding, setting up and upholding the best cloud management strategy for their organisations.
The decision is not an easy one due to the complexity of cloud environments. Between building a private cloud and offloading workloads to a public cloud system, there is also the choice of using a hybrid infrastructure while keeping some workflows on-premises.
