Whether it’s an enterprise with thousands of employees across the globe or a startup running from a garage, the success of the business largely depends on how it consumes technology. With private clouds, organisations are investing high upfront costs and spending the bigger portion of their IT budgets on operations, leaving behind less for digital transformation and innovation. With limited budgets, coping with the pace of technology evolution in their industries becomes even more challenging.
On the other hand, organisations are transforming into an OpEx cost model with the public cloud, offloading management of the infrastructure and focusing more on the application layer. However, this comes at a higher total cost of ownership and less control over their infrastructure.
