A truly unified collaboration solution is about more than bringing remote workers in a team together. With comprehensive unification, you can connect apps and solutions from different companies, to ensure that you get the best portfolio for your enterprise.
Over the last decade or so, the prevalence of cloud-computing has really skyrocketed. What started off as nothing more than a limited collection of computing services, has now evolved into a highly-sophisticated ecosystem, rapidly emerging as the de-facto solution for enterprise IT. According to a study by Microsoft, nearly a third of organizations are working with four or more cloud vendors. In other words, it seems that the future of IT isn't just cloud computing - it's multi-cloud.
A multi-cloud approach to business infrastructure can be one of the simplest ways for organizations to leverage the strengths of various cloud providers while minimizing weaknesses. Not only can today's businesses spread critical workloads effectively across a range of cloud environments, but they can also access new solutions for security, cost-savings, and productivity by making use of the right cloud services.
Recently, as the overall enterprise awareness of the cloud has continued to build, increasing numbers of enterprises are outsourcing their workload deployments to this versatile new structure. In the past, companies only considered a single vendor or cloud provider, but the market is now changing rapidly, with more options becoming available from a variety of providers, from Google to Amazon, and more.
Each year, Gartner publishes a new "IaaS Magic Quadrant" report, which is designed to rank the leading vendors across the cloud marketplace. Often seen as one of the most important reports for cloud development, the IaaS overview frequently focuses on the competition between Google, Microsoft, and AWS, as the main competitors for the space.
Google Cloud and Partners are running custom 5-day hands-on workshops for midsize companies considering Google's Infrastructure as a Service offering as part of their Cloud strategy. These in-depth GCP Bootcamps are perfect for a range of businesses, ranging from those who are exploring cloud deployment for the first time, or those in search of a multi-cloud solution for their organization.
The age of The Cloud is upon us, whether your business is ready, or not. In recent years, we've seen enterprise Cloud strategies truly begin to evolve. In the early days, businesses simply migrated some of their applications to the Cloud to reduce the IT load. Mainly it's been overloaded email servers. However, today, increasing numbers of organizations are developing individual multi-cloud strategies to optimize their network, and critical-application performance.
