Organizations can now grow and pivot with previously unimagined agility. Enticed by the promises of the cloud, businesses of all sizes race toward digital transformation. Since 2009, spending on cloud computing has grown at 4.5 times the rate of IT spending—exploding from $67 billion in 2015 to a projected $162 billion in 2020. By that same year, up to 75 percent of all businesses will
be digital.

What we’re experiencing today is nothing less than a seismic change in the way organizations operate and evolve. But innovation can often outpace planning in this multi-cloud world, and businesses hoping to drive growth confront a host of complexities. With several major public cloud providers continuously developing and offering new services, you’ll probably be pressured to use the one that seems most attractive at the moment. And when one provider introduces a new service that better aligns with your security objectives, but another offers long-term archival storage for a fraction of the cost, you can find yourself stuck in a multi-cloud maze—with all the twists, turns, and choices that implies. The fact is, while this multi-cloud world offers nearly limitless opportunities, it also presents a series of
operational challenges.
