Understanding hybrid cloud adoption – in all its dimensions

Companies’ digital ambitions are expanding as they see more and more examples of how digital transformation can deliver exceptional value to customers. Businesses understand that they need more agility to go up against cloud-native competitors, but they’re hesitant to walk away from familiar, reliable, and still value-generating ‘legacy’ infrastructures. The answer is a hybrid cloud approach that combines on-premises and edge assets with cloud resources.

It’s often said, correctly, that the transition to hybrid cloud involves a lot more than the technology. But what exactly are those other dimensions? How can an IT organization know that it’s not overlooking a key component of a transformation?

It’s based on the HPE Edge-to-Cloud Adoption Framework, the industry’s most comprehensive set of proven methodologies to identify and develop the critical capabilities needed to achieve an optimal hybrid cloud operating model.

The article lays out the critical capabilities and target states for these domains:

  • Strategy & Governance
