Your handbook for cloud success

While the public cloud fueled the first wave of digital transformation, offering speed and agility to build new applications and capabilities, it only gets you so far.

In fact, fully 70 percent of apps and data remain outside the public cloud, due to data gravity, latency, IP protection, and more. Which is why the next wave of digital transformation is all about viewing cloud as an experience that can be brought to your IT investments, wherever they reside.
