As a business leader, if you are looking forward to improving your business outcomes, you must prioritize digital transformation (DX) efforts. Experts believe that DX is one of the driving forces behind businesses and IT investments across all industries. Furthermore, organizations not only witness productivity improvements but also transformative changes in how companies operate. According to studies, tech leaders are increasingly planning a hybrid cloud strategy instead of remaining dependent on private or public clouds. In this article at IT Business Edge, Kihara Kimachia explains how utilizing a hybrid network can help enterprises implement successful DX initiatives.
What Are the Benefits of a Hybrid Network?
Supporting the Remote Workforce
One of the top reasons for cloud adoption is that employees can access data anytime and anywhere. A hybrid network allows organizations to support remote employees with on-demand data access without any central location. Providing employees with accessible computing environments is critical to attracting top talent. Additionally, it helps optimize productivity and efficiency across the organization.
Reducing Costs As the Benefit of a Hybrid Network
A hybrid network is an excellent option for companies that want more security and control of their data within their budget. The hybrid cloud allows companies to store their business-critical and sensitive data on their private, on-premise servers. In addition, companies can offload their less sensitive data to the public cloud. This allows businesses to avoid huge expenditures while expanding their infrastructure and pay only for cloud resources they utilize.
Increasing Agility and Innovation
Companies with a hybrid network are not limited to their private on-premise infrastructure. As a result, this enables them to expand their workload on the cloud. Additionally, the hybrid cloud model allows teams to quickly test, prototype, and launch new products.
Ensuring Business Continuity
“Hybrid cloud environments allow the public cloud to handle workload spikes, so private servers won’t get overwhelmed as computing demands rise or suddenly surges as the organization transforms into a digital-first company,” says Kimachia.
Improving Security and Risk Management
A hybrid cloud’s centralized management makes it easier for organizations to implement robust technical security measures that include encryption, access control, automation, orchestration, and endpoint security to effectively mitigate risk.
