VMware: Driving Extension to Public Cloud: 4 Factors
With cloud adoption predicted to continue its significant growth curve through 2021, you know the question is not “if” customers will make the leap, but when, how and who will lead their journey to the cloud. Fortunately, VMware partners are uniquely positioned with innovative software and service offerings to support customers along this trajectory.
Here’s a look at four factors driving explosive growth, including points to consider when guiding your customers to, through and beyond, their cloud transformations:
1. Business Agility and Flexibility Drive Cloud Adoption and Modernization
Business agility is an organization’s “ability to renew itself, adapt, change quickly, and succeed in a rapidly changing, ambiguous, turbulent environment.” Today, agility equals faster time-to-market via reduced IT complexity, quicker deployments, pay-as-you-go pricing, and scalability; all of which map to private and public cloud adoption. In fact, 41% of companies embracing cloud computing say that agility is their primary business driver. 
What’s more, many customers are looking to hybrid cloud capabilities with a mix of on and off-premises resources to achieve business agility and flexibility. But still, most of their data centers aren’t adequately modernized to extend to the public cloud. This is where partners can step in and support modernization through implementation of fully virtualized, automated, software-defined data centers (SDDC).
