Modern IT organizations that take a holistic view of their IT infrastructure — including on-premises and cloud models — will be best positioned to combat security vulnerabilities. Today, organizations face more uncertainty than ever before. As cyberthreats increase in number and complexity, the need for secure digital availability is paramount. In turn, organizations struggle with adapting their infrastructure strategies to best support their clients and increasingly complex workloads, without sacrificing security.
In January 2020, IBM published a study it had commissioned with Forrester Consulting in September 2019, to evaluate how organizations develop and implement their IT infrastructure strategies. Forrester conducted an online survey of 350 global enterprise IT decision makers across industries to explore this topic. We found that organizations are creating hybrid cloud environments with various public cloud, hosted private cloud and on-premises infrastructure.
