Cloud Cost Optimization: A Pivotal part of Cloud Strategy
According to Gartner, businesses will be spending about $333 billion by the end of 2022 on cloud infrastructure, and according to McKinsey, cloud spending will increase by 47% in the year 2021. These numbers are staggering and certainly depict a very positive picture here. However, cloud consumers need to assess the pay-off of such significant cloud spending. McKinsey reported that companies exceeded their cloud budget by 23% and that 30% of their outlays were wasted. This leads me to wonder if businesses have been able to optimize operations from their cloud investments. Whether the Cloud has just added to their costs or has it been good value for their money? And lastly, why some companies still grapple with mismanaged costs or added costs during their cloud journey?
Mainframe Modernization to Cloud

The State of Remote Working And Productivity During Pandemic

Cloud based systemic optimization is central to the agility of a business in today's post-COVID world. Whilst the accelerating trend to embrace cloud is good, the key focus should lie in identifying and outmaneuvering any future uncertainties. Nobody expected to be forced to work-from home, neither did some industries expect a volatile growth in traffic and demand. For example, Netflix saw a sharp 16 million spike in the number of new subscribers, highlighting the unprecedented growth in demand and the need for tactical systems to handle the same. With the growing scale and complexity of systems architecture and new challenges being imposed, IT professionals are under high pressure to identify anomalies, derive solutions for the same and to ensure that they don't arise in the future. To assure that, enterprises are looking at Observability.

MULTIPLE CLOUD PERSPECTIVES AND INTRODUCTION TO AZURE ARC
Decoding Multiple Cloud Perspectives In today's day and age, business enterprises are finding it difficult to navigate through different complex environments that run across data centers, edge, and multiple clouds. While single cloud still holds relevance, most companies are adopting multi-cloud and hybrid cloud models. However, the terms hybrid cloud and multi-cloud are inconsistently used. A multi-cloud strategy entails using multiple cloud services from different providers based on their performance levels at certain tasks. You can read my full blog on the same where I dive deep into multi-cloud perspectives and strategies and Choosing a Cloud Strategy: Hybrid, Multi and Distributed Cloud.
