The Journey to Hybrid Cloud: Considerations for Architecting Your Enterprise Roadmap

Private clouds have gotten much recent attention, with the enterprise becoming talented in single application hosting for a seamless experience. But what about the holistic enterprise? A recent Gartner report found that by 2016, cloud computing will become the bulk of new IT spending; by the end of 2017, nearly half of large enterprises will have hybrid cloud deployments. The journey starts with asking “Why” and defining the vision instead of the mechanics. By identifying the imperatives and underlying drivers, architects can determine how to measure the value of cloud integration. While there is no single formula for cloud adoption, creating a successful hybrid cloud involves strategic and tactical considerations that reach beyond IT to meet the overall business vision.

In this session, hear lessons learned from an international consultancy with experience across multiple business sectors. Leading practices include the following:

  • Are we ready? Identify key areas in which to explore your maturity and transitional readiness.
  • Which of our architectural landscapes are affected?
  1. Data landscape: Explore performance, security, and legal and regulatory ramifications based on where data resides and how it is accessed.
  2. Processing landscape: Where do various types of compute execute? How do location, virtualization strategy, and capacity/elastic compute availability impact latency and the solution architectural design?
  3. Security landscape: Holistic security includes aspects such as authentication, authorization, encryption, and protections for data in motion, at rest, and in use.
  4. Operations and monitoring landscape: How is holistic platform monitoring achieved given distributed responsibilities and service-level agreements?
