More than 65% of enterprise IT organizations committed to hybrid cloud technologies by the end of 2015, vastly driving the rate and pace of change in IT organizations, according to IDC. The key business drivers for public cloud adoption include greater agility, faster time to market, disaster recovery, business continuity and other benefits with a low-cost, pay-as-you-go price tag. But those promises, while compelling, don't address the complexity that can result from deploying and managing a spectrum of disparate resource types, said Lynn LeBlanc, CEO of HotLink, which provides a platform that enables data centers of all sizes to streamline the integration and management of cross-platform IT resources. "Enterprises will need to streamline the techniques for integrating, managing and automating on- and off-premise workloads in a way that makes sense for corporate IT departments," she said. LeBlanc offered up eight best practices for reaching that goal.
