The Benefits of Hybrid IT | @CloudExpo @SolarWinds #AWS #BigData #AI #DX

The Benefits of Hybrid IT: Expectations vs. Reality Hybrid IT is today's reality, and while its implementation may seem daunting at times, more and more organizations are migrating to the cloud. In fact, according to SolarWinds 2017 IT Trends Index: Portrait of a Hybrid IT Organization 95 percent of organizations have migrated crucial applications to the cloud in the past year. As such, it's in every IT professional's best interest to know what to expect. Certainly, every business has a varying expectation of what they'd like to gain by migrating applications or infrastructure to the cloud, but the most compelling incentives are by far the opportunity to achieve a simplified management process, faster deployment, or a cost efficiency that benefits their bottom line. Unfortunately, for many organizations, achieving these benefits isn't always easy-or even the reali... (more)

Analytic Profiles: Key to Data Monetization | @BigDataExpo #IoT #BigData #Analytics
