Accenture: Unlocking innovation in hybrid cloud environments

When one size no longer fits all

Not too long ago, the public cloud seemed like the perfect solution for new business needs. The trouble is, the needs never stopped changing.

Public cloud options—where the services and infrastructure are available to anyone on demand through a third party—offer a quick, efficient way to shift to the cloud without costly investment. But they have their challenges, including issues with data security and privacy, not to mention the technical limitations of what is often a one-size-fits-all approach.



Today, the cloud is evolving. It’s becoming a dynamic continuum of capabilities: Private options are booming, hardware manufacturers are launching public-like offerings and edge computing is set to grow exponentially over the next five years. The cloud is no longer a single, static destination. It’s the operating model of the future.

As a result, more companies are turning to a hybrid approach. In fact, experts say 90% of organizations will soon opt for these multi-cloud architectures to avoid over-reliance on a single public-cloud provider.
