Most companies today are using public cloud as part of their IT environment. The configure one or many compartments in Azure, AWS, Google and/or Softlayer. Each and everyone of those environments is done separately, often by different teams that are or are not part of the IT organization. The result is multiple environments that each are silos with some functionality in them. That makes life very difficult for end-users while not addressing security and compliance requirements. A website pointing to all of them will not solve this. There is really the need for a common front-end that shields the complexity from the environments. But that is not enough, we also need to look at building consistency across the total IT environment. This leads to the development of a proper Hybrid IT Strategy. I’ll come back to that in a next podcast.
