How can businesses best overcome the challenges of multi-cloud?


Published on

Multi-cloud is gaining popularity as businesses get their digital transformation underway. In particular, a multi-cloud approach enables companies to work flexibly while keeping costs down.

However, with multiple cloud services, an organisation faces multiple plates to spin. As a result, businesses must carefully consider their multi-cloud strategy shaped around their own organisational requirements.

Fundamentally, multi-cloud architecture must enable scalability and reliability of enterprise applications. This way, whatever the purpose of your business application, your architecture can deliver on longevity.

Then, of course, every multi-cloud strategy needs emphasis on security. This means that enterprises must take the time to review the security policies per cloud service provider and pay close attention to any gaps in between. If neglected, businesses may find themselves at risk of breaching compliance and governance requirements.

For the sake of ease, organisations should seek multiple vendors with common denominators. However, businesses will simultaneously need a workforce with rich and diverse skill sets to match the diversity of the vendors. Unfortunately, this is much easier said than done, and it can also be quite the squeeze on your organisation's budget.

On the bright side, companies don't need to face the burden of multi-cloud alone. A number of solutions are available out there to assist in your multi-cloud journey.
