Cloud computing continues to gain momentum across organizations of all sizes.  IDC estimates that 80% of IT service organizations will move to hybrid cloud environments by the end of 2017.

What does a hybrid cloud do for your business?  What are the real business benefits?

EMC The Source Podcast 36 – Hybrid Cloud Buy Vs Build

More important, once you have determined that a hybrid deployment is the right cloud for you, where do you start?  How do you order a cloud?  How do you build a cloud?  What options are there?

Principled Technologies recently published an in-depth research report focused on uncovering the real-world value of a hybrid cloud deployment.  The report “IT service transformation with hybrid cloud: Buy or Build?”, details the journey of an average company’s path to a hybrid cloud.  The report includes a detailed breakdown of 3 year cost savings and all associated costs for both building and buying the required infrastructure.  The full report is available here and in EMC The Source App under bonus material for this episode.

I recently spoke to Kevin Gray, Sr Manager of EMC Engineered Solutions, Kevin was part of the EMC Team behind the white paper.  Where did the savings come from, what did we learn?  Find out this week on “EMC The Source”.

As data volumes continue to grow, organizations are under more pressure than ever to make smart decisions on which data to save and how to archive it all while managing a variety of compliance, governance and operational needs.  But do the applications that created the data all need to be saved too?  Even if the data is essential to an organization, it doesn’t mean all of the applications need to be retained. After all, the cost, time, and manpower required to maintain aging applications can be substantial.  Simply retaining every application in an organization’s portfolio because it has authored essential data no longer makes sense.  In fact, it is a looming problem that must be addressed.  Whether it is caused by technology platform changes, compliance requirements or business events like mergers and acquisitions, decommissioning applications must be part of every IT organization’s strategic plan to become more efficient, agile and aligned with the business.

EMC Infoarchive is designed to directly address these concerns, allowing you to extract the data trapped in legacy applications so you can focus on the future, leaving no application data behind.  Decommissioning applications is the key to repurposing IT budget for the move to the third platform.

I recently sat down with Bryant Bell (@bell2bry) before his “Using InfoArchive to Accelerate Your Move to the Third Platform” breakout session at the EMC Forum in Dallas, Texas.
