“Digital transformation is not possible without consistent IT modernization” – a central finding of a recent Lünendonk study*. According to the study, more than two-thirds of users see “connecting cloud solutions to existing IT systems as a challenge”. The main reasons they cite are poor compliance and security requirements and lack of interoperability. The IT landscapes have grown historically, the systems are hardly synchronized with each other. The exchange of data is only possible with difficultly, if at all, which slows down digitization projects and puts data controllers under enormous pressure to act.

300,000 to 400,000 US dollars loss within 60 minutes: that's how much a one-hour server outage would have cost every fourth company worldwide in 2019**. No wonder that stable IT operations is one of the most important challenges for IT decision-makers. However, the trend towards using different clouds in combination with legacy and on-premises systems makes IT management complex and infrastructures more susceptible to disruptions.
The solution: smoothly interlocking processes. Applications must be able to be moved securely from one infrastructure platform to another, and resources must be easy to allocate and remove. In the Future Cloud Infrastructure, these processes run completely automatically. Your advantages:

A veritable flood of applications is rolling towards us: according to IDC, by 2024 more business applications will be rolled out than in the past 40 years thanks to the greater number of developers and agile methods. This also affects the underlying IT infrastructure, which must be expanded accordingly in the companies. The result: a complex mix of owned IT infrastructure and various cloud offerings.
Reduce complexity and bring all operating models together in the Future Cloud Infrastructure – be it legacy IT, hybrid clouds, or multi-clouds:
