Examining drivers, benefits and challenges of
multi-clouds and hybrid clouds

The movement to hybrid cloud is a complex business.

This report examines key cloud trends, both globally and in the UK in particular. In the re­port, we discuss the key business drivers and benefits of multi-clouds and hybrid clouds, and we surface trends for individual workloads, as well as some of the challenges to cloud deployment.
