Increasing utilization of data centers and cloud services across the Asia Pacific region is giving rise to the hybrid IT environment which is fast becoming the new normal, according to Frost & Sullivan.
Besides helping enterprises to drive digital disruption, the latest Hybrid IT environment is also enhancing the customer experience and encouraging business model innovation, the firm said.
As a result, there is greater acceleration in the adoption of a multi-vendor multi-cloud environment or hybrid IT. More than half of enterprises surveyed last year are planning to move to a hybrid environment over the next 12 to 18 months.
This is putting the onus on vendors and services providers as the traditional IT procurement model is being disrupted by new business models. The service providers are responding to this by accelerating their pace of service innovation.
