The hybrid IT balancing act.

Most operating environments are a hybrid mix of owned and operated data centers, public and private cloud, colocation facilities, and edge computing that grew organically over time. They are complex, multiplatform environments.

Complexity can add unnecessary costs, create inefficiencies, and make simple decisions harder. The path forward is an intelligently architected and intentionally designed hybrid IT environment.

By 2022, one-third of new workloads are expected to be on-premises, one-third are expected to be off-premises, and one-third are expected to be in the cloud.*

What is an intentional hybrid IT environment?

An intentional hybrid IT environment creates business value as it delivers IT services to the business and to customers. It strikes the right balance between traditional service delivery models that can include mainframes, AS/400s, AIXs, and x86s and agile delivery models like cloud, containers, and edge computing. It protects existing IT investments whenever appropriate and leverages agile technology when it makes business sense to do so.
